Booked many times at this venue and have never been disappointed. Seen Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham-Carter, John Gordon Sinclair amongst many others. Great place - very welcoming - nice food too. Highly recommended as a theatre space. Great for Shakespeare and the classics!

Went to see a comedy show, staff very friendly and helpful. Well maintained building, toilets were small for size of venue. Seats were comfortable enough.
