Lovely, modern theatre with comfortable seating, and even the balcony didn't feel a million miles from the stage. Managed to get parked at the venue, which was a bonus, as not much parking. Pre-ordered interval drinks (too expensive - aren't they always?), which were supposed...More

The show we went to see was excellent. The Cliffs is looking tired and careworn and decidedly in need of renovation. The facilities are dated and it's disabled access limited. The seats are just horrendously uncomfortable unless you bring your own cushions and the staff...More

Seats very narrow, could do with an update. Have arm rests which need to pull down. Plenty of leg room. If sit in rear stalls have a clear view as rows are on gradients. Have excellent programme of shows to suit all tastes.

Hi there, Depending on the finishing time of the show, the bar will normally be open for approximately 30 minutes post-show. The bar normally shuts no later than 11pm
