very nice theatre

Nice location, easy to find. Managed to park close by. Not a big theatre but even as I was... sitting one row from the back, had a very clear view.

The theatre is an excellent local theatre which is not that big but seeing shows here you are very close to stage and with an excellent atmosphere. There is a very good assortment of entertainment to suit everyone. The bar area can get crowded but there is a good size outdoor area which is sheltered and is situated next to... More

This a cosy little theatre is around the corner from the Last Wine Bar where we went for a pre-theatre dinner. The theatre is up close and intimate and has a lively bar garden bar for between performances. The staff were very accommodating as we had friends coming after the start of the performance so we left their tickets on... More

The playhouse is such an intimate venue, wherever you sit you have great view of stage and the acts are always fantastic. Great night watching Pete Firman, still have no idea how he did half the magic tricks!

The musical was enjoyable for an amateur group, and the theatre was a good temperature which was appreciated on a very warm night. Had the usual problems with the bar and other facilities being cramped, the bar particularly because so many people use it, and that's not including the 300 people actually watching the show. The flute was flat for... More

Went with friends to see West Side Story last Friday. Great and lovely theatre. We had drinks in the bar which is very reasonable and serve Adnams gin, which is a favourite of ours! Lovely atmosphere suiting all age groups! Very arty and bohemian. Will return.

This was an amazing performance and had me on the edge of my seat throughout . The playhouse is a great venue to see such a performance in comfortable seating and a very nice place. The bar is very eccentric and artistic and offers a wide variety of drinks with friendly staff. This is worth booking tickets to see a... More
