Fabulous place for drinks before you enter the theatrical world. I have been several times this year and productions have never disappointed. It is a really good, different night out and good atmosphere both before and after for drinks.

I loved the set, and the large audience really enjoyed the play. The writing was clever, with pithy literary allusions, excellent casting and superb performances, as well as perfect pacing. A thoroughly enjoyable, thought provoking, fun, evening.

My wife had her 2 wing mirrors kicked off her car when parked on the embankment for a night at the theatre so that was a costly night out. Suppose it's park @ your own risk.
