2 adults and 2 kids. wonderful breakfast with quality ingredients - the adults had the full English, one child had the kid's version and the other had the bacon baguette. Highly recommend. Good coffee and also very good staff. Can't fault the experience.

We attended with a number of children for the Christmas panto. The spa seems to have a renovation since my last visit and is now very well presented inside. There is plenty of space and good views. Half time snacks are well priced.

Listen to the bands whilst having either a alcohol beverage or coffee and cake. Has a lovely Victorian bandstand that you can listen to the music in. Nice cafe.

The theatre is wonderful but we were so underwhelmed by the bar/cafe areas, far too bright with few places to relax with a drink unless you stand. Would be reluctant to return.

Hello, Sorry, can't remember row numbers. As I recall, all seats are situated one row higher than the one below. We sat in the second tier and had a good clear view. I expect it is even better in the front tier
