Have been to the Fireside many times through the years! It has always been a very pleasant experience with food and a fine show! Lately though, I think the price has risen and the food although still pretty good is not worth what they are...More

A wonderful experience for the whole family, all ages. Book a package with play and dinner, or matinee. Never seen a bad show. Food is outstanding. Our son, 10, was mesmerised by the show in the round.

We are a theatre in the round that seats 650 guests so one is more than nine rows from the stage. Most people prefer the main floor but the first row of the balcony is also excellent seating. If you have specific requests... More
