Another great night at the Hawth Theatre. Nice and intimate not too many seats so like a private showing. Comfy seats. Good view of stage. Easy to get a drink during performance (you can also pre-book drinks for the break)

Thanks for your review Mark, appreciate it. We've been lucky attracting the likes of Ross, Russell Brand, John Bishop, Miranda Hart and Jason Manford to perform their work-in-progress shows here offering a chance to see such big names in an intimate setting.

The shows are fantastic but this is all marred by the pre drinks taking over 30 minutes to get served. Pre ordering helps but not a guarantee. Not cheap either.

The same as Linda S said. I always go to the local harvester before a show at the Hawth. And if you book a table at the harvester online you usually get e-mailled a voucher for one free drink.
