£15 extra each - I thought it was worth it - we were well-looked after and made the most of it by arriving at 6pm for the 7.30 show. Only a wee room but it was cosy and comfortable.

We ordered tickets for Ross Noble and got front row in the Upper Circle. These were excellent seats and the theatre is very ornate and lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed the show and were very comfortable in the seats.

A lovely old theatre sympathetically restored. Sat in dress circle (row E) with plenty of leg room, unlike other venues I have visited. Last time we visited was in the "slip seats" - so near the stage. For those, like me, unable to negotiate stairs,...More

An absolutely beautiful venue, so full of character and charm. We sat in the dress circle but I think you would have a good view wherever you were sitting. I love the staircase. There is lift access for those who can't manage the stairs. We...More

Very good venue - on street parking is usually available. Plenty of places to eat around the area if you wish to do so prior to the performance.

All appeared organised and timings went well. We had front row seats so can't really comment on the views etc. The beverages were not as expensive as I would have thought, but as you can imagine the bar was incredibly busy.

Can only agree with the above - expensive as you would expect at a theater - but also not really very nice, so not worth "treating " yourself on a special day out !
