Visited the YA theatre, Guildford, to see Laurence Fox in the Real Thing. Play was first class but experience blighted by ghastly food in their Riverside Cafe beforehand. We were pleasantly surprised to find a table very easily at 7pm, an hour before the performance...More

We visit this theatre regularly - the last visit was to see the poignant Wiper Times. The new seats are comfortable and the auditorium has a marvellous ambience. The staff are friendly and helpful. The theatre is a great asset to Guildford's cultural life.

What a charming theatre, this is a little gem in the heart of Guildford. It has an excellent cafe that serves delicious food with a great outdoor area. Service from catering and theatre staff was professional and welcoming I will certainly visit again

This is a fabulous production. The acting from all was exceptional. Anne Reid and James Bolam were just amazing.

What a top play! The acting is superb, the scenes with Ann Reid and James Bolam are so natural you feel as though you're eavesdropping in their kitchen. But there is no weak link in this play , all actors are convincing and energetic and...More
