This is was the first place I went to on my first night in Exeter and I have been ever since a usual customer. Very friendly and laid back atmosphere, independent plays and lots of other things to do.

Exeter is lacking a really good big theatre, we never get any of the big touring productions and the much of what is staged at the Northcott, Corn Exchange and Barnfield is truly woeful. It is therefore lovely to have a theatre which attracts quality, innovative productions. We have seen a number of productions at the Bike Shed Theatre: all have been superbly acted and have been thought provoking and original. The bar next to the theatre is a lovely place to hang out.

Intimate and quirky with excellent diverse performances. Worth keeping an eye open for what's coming up. Highly recommended

The bike Shed Theatre is a working theatre showcasing artists of all calibre with some really good local projects.
It also has a bar, which you walk through to reach the theatre. The bar is trendy, with comfy old furniture, the possibility to play board games, cocktails and some food (menu varies, they're usually snack sized) a fabulous experience. It does get "hopping" in there with live music or DJs some weekends.

I love this theatre and bar! There is such a variety of plays, talks and comedy to see in the little, intimate theatre, tucked away in the heart of Exeter. With family or friends it is a joy to feel part of whatever is going on. The food is tasty and very good value. Whilst there isn't a huge choice, there is something for most people, from soup to salad or hummus and bread. There is a large selection of drinks too, alcoholic or not. The cosy atmosphere, with comfortable armchairs and standard lamps, or wooden tables and chairs, combine to make it home from home. What a pleasant way to spend some time.
