Booked Russell Kane for our anniversary and as time was short for a weekday evening, decided to book our meal at the White Rock Bistro. We arrived early, but were shown straight to our reserved table. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. The menu is limited, but we both found something we liked (2 veggie options for my... More

I went to see the above show that my daughter had a leading role in, but this is a review of the theatre and restaurant! White Rock Theatre had a major refurb in the late 1980s or thereabouts and was transformed into a lovely venue, exactly how you would picture a theatre should be. It's not much changed from that...

Theatre is quite old fashioned but charming. We ate in the bistro restaurant before the show and the food was burgers etc but very good. I would have no hesitation in going to see another show at this theatre.

Was pleasantly surprised by this local theatre. Has some great shows on. It is small and cosy but big enough for a good atmosphere to be built up. Only draw back is the foyer - it gets crowded when people are arriving, the bar downstairs is heaving and its a struggle to move around. Upstairs is a bit better, has... More

A whole group of us went to see a rather good musical but the state of the theatre was quite an eye opener. They had obviously refurbished the front but the seats were awful. Mine in the stalls row P no 7 had half of the foam showing that had been picked at and hardly any fabric with the back... More

Perfectly happy with the show we saw but it would have to be a real must see to entice me back to this theatre - the seats are crammed together and there is no leg room - the whole thing is very cosy to say the least and the lack of air con doesn't help. Add to this a glass... More

So a great performance recently in this great local theatre. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, from the box office to the cafe the whole evening went brilliantly. I've visited so many times now and never had a bad experience.

During a performance of Joseph a staff member and her partner sat in front of us with complimentary tickets. I was disgusted. They were fondling throughout the performance and the man sat with his feet on the seats and he climbed over the seats next to me every time he wanted to get out. I Complained as I had spent...

We booked to see Joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat on Valentines day. The ticket prices were very reasonable and the view in the stalls was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the show was out of this world. Fantastic evening and we'll definitely book the White Rock again.

The theatre experience wasn't bad on the whole. The staff were helpful and the seats in the circle good, although could do with a little more leg room. Have sat in worse though. The food experience however in the Bistro wasn't great and we won't be going back. We'd booked a table for 6pm, leaving an hour and a half... More
