Very enjoyable meal and drinks. For us a new menu a la carter rather than their usual 2 or 3 course set price. We enjoyed each person spending what they wanted. Between us we had several different starters and mains, everyone enjoyed their meal. We...More

Very disappointed the star of the show, Sheridan Smith, was sick which was only announced as the curtain went up. No sign of box office staff at the end to complain to. Show itself was naff, missed timed jokes,borderline racist accents, minimalist staging - endless...More

Went to see Funny Girl with another couple. The show was great, even though Sheridan Smith was ill and couldn't appear, Natasha J Barnes was excellent. Our problem was with seating. I had booked the front stalls thinking these would be the best seats, however...More

I bought tickets for this show as a Christmas present last year. Like others we only discovered Sheridan Smith was not performing when the curtain went up - a quick google at the interval and she's not been well for weeks. Very disappointing that the...More

Went to see this show and was told Sheridan Smith was starring. However, sadly she was unwell and her understudy was playing her part which we were only informed of when the curtains lifted. Her understudy was Natasha Barnes. To be honest I wasn't expecting...More

Most post-war theatres have been built without sufficient time and attention being paid the fact that people like to eat and / or drink whilst visiting.......but the Cliffs has ample facilities which make the "whole" experience so much better

Visited on the 25th to see how good this was, food was good and plentiful but bar prices a little high. Acts were very good with the Aussie compare and the headline being especially good would certainly come again as I felt it was good...More

We have booked a box to see Russell kane in April. It says restricted view unless you are in the front row of the box but when I booked it there was only two seats in the box. Does this mean it is just going to be myself and my husband and we shouldn't have to worry about sitting behind anyone else so should have a good view? Thanks in advance Kelly
