Wonderful theatre, fantastic plays and shows, great seats. My father had a problem with his hearing aid. There was no fuss, they provided him with their loop stsyem and he was as happy as larry. Nothing is too much trouble and the actors sometimes mix with the audience after. The Saturday matinees are popular and I cannot think of a... More

I went to see the stage play version of The Verdict. The theatre is in a good location, and has a cafe and restaurant downstairs, a bar upstairs and an additional circle bar as well. You can order your interval drinks in advance, and even take drinks into the auditorium as long as they are in a plastic glass.. My... More

This was our first visit, to see The Verdict, an excellent play with Clive Mantle outstanding in the lead role. We sat in row 2 of the Circle and the view and acoustics were great. We only bought a water for the interval but concur with a previous reviewer that prices for biscuits, cakes etc are excessive. The solution to... More

We went to watch "out of order" a lovely old farce - well acted in a comfortable and very full theatre. Before that we had a meal in the restaurant with friends and was surprised how expensive it was. We had sea bream for over £17 for two small fillets and a small slab of rosti potato with a sprinkling... More

We went to see Guys and Dolls by the local theatre school. It was vibrant and energetic and we could not have picked a bettter night out. We parked easily after 6 pm for £1 in the nearbyby car park and walked along the river to the theatre past budding daffodils. The restaurant staff were attentive and well turned out... More

The production values for Aladdin, the panto, were very high indeed. This was sheer joy, towards the end of the run when the cast and crew must have been exhausted. Panto needs to work for adults and children and this was perfect - a slow audience but the cast built the energy levels in the room and by the second... More

It is scary to think that I first visited the Yvonne Arnaud way back in November 1971 on a school trip! I don't go to the theatre often nowadays, but have not missed the pantomime for about the 15 x years. Excellent production as always! Look forward to the 2017-2018 production!

Twenty of us booked together with some eating before and some after. We have used this theatre before and as usual it was very good. Parking is conveniently nearby but fills up quickly but it takes ages to get out again as everyone departs at once. Tip - park elsewhere in Guildford and walk a few hundred metres.
