Most enjoyable morning spent on Playhouse bar sofa, drinking their excellent coffee and eating (admittedly pre-wrapped) Bakewell tart, and doing ‘I’ and Guardian crosswords.

Have lived here for sometime now and this is def one of my favourite places. You can sit with a book and a coffee or meet friends there and every one is friendly . Staff are great too . Relaxed, arty, unpretentious and highly recommend
Saw this at the playhouse last weekend. Superb acting and singing. The tickets were reasonably prices and such a lovely venue. We’ve booked for another event. Very impressed. Lots of nearby parking too

What an enjoyable, funny evening! Outstanding performances throughout but Meg Artherton ( Lina Lamont ) was truly brilliant.Made me laugh out loud, followed closely by Tom Davies ( R.F Simpson ). Definitely recommend !
Brilliant theatre, lovely setting, comfortable seating, perfect sightlines from any seat, intimate feel, attracts top acts, and you're so close to the stage. Rhod Gilbert was on fine form btw. It's a lovely place.
