Great to see a show and a nice place to eat or have a glass of wine, We have seen a few shows and also stopped for a drink or two while visiting the local park. A nice relaxing Weekend activity.

Love going here for a great night out where we can enjoy a fantastic meal in the Bar Alto restaurant that has great food and service then see what have been some fantastic shows in one of the small up close and personal theatres.
