Visited here last night to watch the ELVIS production. What a charming place, seemingly well managed, polite staff, comfortable surrounding and decor which is exceptional. It is a gem of a place. Easy for all to see except one or two who have seats near...More

Great production of Beautiful The Musical. We were in seats right in the back of the stalls. There was plenty of legroom and still a reasonable view. The staff in the bar were very friendly too.

Historic theatre with a good sized stage and seating legroom is reasonable for an old establishment. There are a few seats with restricted view so be careful when booking. Couple of bars where you can reserve drinks for the interval. Don't think it's air conditioned...More

It has an air handling system rather than air conditioning. When are you coming as we are currently extending the system to hopefully improve the upper levels.
