The staff were pleasant and friendly. Seats were reasonably comfortable. Unfortunately there must have a been an issue with water...the toilets wouldn't flush and also the taps only had a trickle of water.

Recently went to the theatre in Harrogate and this one is larger but not as opulent. Nice overall with large enough bars. Slightly more legroom this time. Shame that the play, Seriously Dead was awful!

Sorry to hear that you had such a disappointing visit to our venue. We do have level access entrance on Commercial Street for customers in wheelchairs as obviously not everyone can get out of their wheelchair and walk into the building. We don't have a...More
