“A Lovely Theatre”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

The Theatre is set in its own green space Grounds and has a wide variety of shows on offer through out the year.
Was until 2011 a council run venue with an award winning excellent customer service record.
Now a private company run theatre where customer service is not a priority.

“Never disappointed”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

I am a frequent visitor, and have never been disappointed. Such an enormous range of different performances, reasonably priced, always a great evening. The wheelchair platform is ideal for me

“Loads of parking, good venue”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

I have been here a few times, most recently for a folk festival and to see a play - loads of parking which is free, we walked into town and went shopping and had lunch then came back to the venue to watch the show. Bar prices reasonable.

“Great shows, but have your pre-show dinner elsewhere”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

I've seen amazing shows here; dance, theatre, music. Parking is good, and a modern but pleasant auditorium.
But the bar is small and understaffed, and the 'cafe' serves prison-style canteen food. What a wasted opportunity, guys. There are no eateries nearby, so you've got a perfect place for a restaurant.

“Poor service and poor food”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

The service is poor and they don't listen when you take your orders. As when our order arrived totally different to what we asked for. Food poor quality veg all hard roast not even cooked enough nothing fresh all frozen. Very disappointing wouldn't go back again for food only to see the shows. When you do complain to the lady Manager she doesn't no what to do or even give you a refund
