We've seen a few shows and we have never been disappointed. The chairs are quite comfortable, the staff are really friendly and organised and the facilities are great.

Very good. Lovely bar to go in before show and in interval. Whatever show I have been to was just amazing, feel like I relax back in the seats. Always enjoy myself.

Attended The Hafren last night( 16/3/17), had a most enjoyable time Max has lost none of his bounce. Exceedingly good value at £25 . Small theatre which generates an excellent atmosphere.Drinks served in the bar by friendly staff at reasonable prices.

Took my son to watch horrible histories. Great as always. The theatre is quite large, but warm and cozy feeling. All the staff are really friendly.
