We have visited the Northcott many times, and not all shows have this offer. Tonight we were seeing Miles Jupp, and this was the first time we had taken up the special pre-show meal offer of a curry and a drink for £10 Not a fan of curries, I was a bit worried about whether it would be too hot...

We absolutely loved the show. We saw it on 1st January 2017 2pm. I can't understand the bad reviews? It was outstanding. Star cast. Hook and Tinkerbell stole the show for me. The set design was stunning. Costumes dead on period. It was done well and stuck to the original JM Barry story. Its a lovely theatre, and the staff... More

If I had read the other reviews beforehand I probably wouldn't have booked tickets! However the play was really good. There was flying and the story was conveyed faithfully and adapted really well for children. We were a party of 5 children aged 7 to 14 and 4 adults. We all enjoyed it and felt the scathing review on here... More

We were booked to see Peter Pan on Wednesday evening, but just before we left home my Mum fell down some stairs and we ended up in A&E instead. My husband rang the theatre to explain that we would not be able to attend and they could re-sell our tickets. They very kindly said that we could transfer our tickets... More

Having seen an excellent Christmas show last year, we booked once again for this year's production. It was a tremendous disappointment. The actors were so badly directed, it really was an absolute shambles and I imagine pretty humiliating for them.The magical story of the boy who doesn't want to grow up, was ruined by a very clumsy adaptation of the...

Theatre is well set out, we had cheaper seats, but anywhere in the Theatre, as far as I could tell, you would be able to have a decent view of the stage, so that's good. Went yesterday, last min. booking and decision, booking process is easy and box office easy to contact. I had a question about opening times and... More

Every year we look forward to seeing the Christmas show,but oh dear what a shame this years was so very disappointing.it lacked flow,fun and fantasy.All the things this show should sparkle with.Tinker bell although funny looked at times uncomfortable,uneasy and unhappy.The cast did their upmost best to make good a bad script from such a wonderful book,it seemed some children...

Staff are nice but hopeless. I was really looking forward to a nice cappuccino but all they had was filtered coffee. Lady serving downstairs advised me to go upstairs to the restaurant for cappuccino. Went upstairs but was told exactly the same thing...only serving filtered coffee. We finally settled for 2 x filtered coffees and 2 x kitkats which cost... More

I last ate at the Northcott over a year ago, when it was chaotic. But under the new regime it is superb. Delicious, beautifully-presented, top-notch food, well-organised restaurant and very good staff. A lovely enhancement to the theatre experience. And thank you for providing a coat rack! A great night out.
