Not a wide menu selection but good food. Simple and very reasonable. Great out of town meeting spot. Nice view of the Lagan. Will definitely go again.

“Thank goodness it is finally open again.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

Great wee theatre and always a very good programme of events. The only reason I haven't given top marks is because of the bar,such long queues and not enough staff on duty.

“Jewel in Belfast's Cultural Crown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

The new building is impressive and the coffee shop is a great addition for a place to meet even if not visiting the theatre for a show. Exceptional programme - especially loved 'The Painkiller'. Will be visiting again very soon!

“The Little Prince”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

Enjoyable surroundings, loved the portraits in the foyer. The theatre was lovely although I didn't think an awful lot on the show we saw, but hey, it was a night out with the wife, that made up for it.
