What a charming theatre, this is a little gem in the heart of Guildford. It has an excellent cafe that serves delicious food with a great outdoor area. Service from catering and theatre staff was professional and welcoming I will certainly visit again

This is a fabulous production. The acting from all was exceptional. Anne Reid and James Bolam were just amazing.

What a top play! The acting is superb, the scenes with Ann Reid and James Bolam are so natural you feel as though you're eavesdropping in their kitchen. But there is no weak link in this play , all actors are convincing and energetic and the script moves quickly and with spot on humour to include the most current news... More

The setting of this small theatre is really lovely . I visited on a warm spring night and many fellow theatre goers were sitting outside overlooking the river bank and having coffees and other drinks . The design of the theatre inside works to bring lots of light into the lobby and bars and gives a very pleasant effect .The... More

The Yvonne Arnaud is a very comfortable provincial theatre which gets many of the main touring shows and theatre productions. It has a restaurant (probably need to pre-book), a bar and coffee bar. Prices are very reasonable. It has a good atmosphere, and I think all seas have a good view and leg room.

Wonderful theatre, fantastic plays and shows, great seats. My father had a problem with his hearing aid. There was no fuss, they provided him with their loop stsyem and he was as happy as larry. Nothing is too much trouble and the actors sometimes mix with the audience after. The Saturday matinees are popular and I cannot think of a... More

I went to see the stage play version of The Verdict. The theatre is in a good location, and has a cafe and restaurant downstairs, a bar upstairs and an additional circle bar as well. You can order your interval drinks in advance, and even take drinks into the auditorium as long as they are in a plastic glass.. My... More

This was our first visit, to see The Verdict, an excellent play with Clive Mantle outstanding in the lead role. We sat in row 2 of the Circle and the view and acoustics were great. We only bought a water for the interval but concur with a previous reviewer that prices for biscuits, cakes etc are excessive. The solution to... More

We went to watch "out of order" a lovely old farce - well acted in a comfortable and very full theatre. Before that we had a meal in the restaurant with friends and was surprised how expensive it was. We had sea bream for over £17 for two small fillets and a small slab of rosti potato with a sprinkling... More
