Nice bar and seating area to enjoy a drink before a show. We didn't eat but the meals that others had looked pretty good.

A friend and I came hear it see the Amelia Fox play called sex with strangers. The theatre is beautiful and wherever you sit the views are amazing. I thought it would be odd but it really helps with the story telling. Staff helpful but the drinks are overpriced and we both thought the spirits were potentially watered down or... More

Emilia Fox was as always lovely and her young lover had a great body but struggled with his clarity and volume.The play made points but didn't expand on them. A great set-up both downstairs and in the main space.Lovely fresh salad & quiche.

Local theatre with great productions in a beautiful building away from the Central London crowds but 2 min walk to Swiss Cottage tube station. The seats are comfortable and have great views of the stage.

If you get a chance and are not faint hearted about explicit sexual scenes this is an intriguing play. It is about the use of sexual therapy to rehabilitate serious criminal offenders and it was great acting given its sensitive nature. Quite different and Hampstead seems to be showing some interesting plays with sexual or ambivalent titles which I will... More

I took the tube from central London going north, got off at Swiss Cottage Station and around the corner, just a few steps away, was the Hampstead Theatre. It's that easy to find this wonderful theatre. It attracts stars from the West End, t.v. and film and the productions are excellent. I sat upstairs this time which was uncomfortable after... More

It's some time since we last visited Hampstead Theatre and our visit this time reminded us how pleasant the building - the stalls have good ,comfy seats and excellent views of the stage . I had some doubts about the play ( Wild Honey ) before we went but it turned out to be an excellent one - early Chekov... More
