Had another great evening last night at Exeter’s Northcott Theatre. A little Gem of a theatre. I saw the mesmerising Gandini Juggling: Smashed, a few days earlier Joan Armatrading Live and I’m booked for Henry V due Nov. Such variety! Can also recommend pre-theatre dining...More

We’d never seen this operetta by Gilbert & Sullivan and this performance by an all male cast was brilliant. Well worth the admission price. The stars came out as fairies and captivated us immediately. If ever they come to a theatre near you, go to...More

After a disappointing meal here recently we were offered a complementary lunch. I'm very glad we accepted the offer as all our meals were very enjoyable, the ribs were a particular favourite. We were surprised that the restaurant wasn't busier as the menu was reasonably...More
