A wonderful and slightly hidden theatre in the city.

Good transport links and it’s actually not that hard to find it’s just down a side road.

Staff were very friendly but not awkwardly overly so, just right!

Has a good bar space and it’s also very warm and cosy.

Good toilet facilities and disabled facilities.

Actually theatre space is very well laid out, just be aware that the sound/tech person can be a little loud at times.

Highly recommend!

Interesting little venue tucked away off Fleet Street. Until I visited I wasn't aware it existed but the foundation opened in 1891, although the theatre is a newer addition, opening in 1993!

Quite small, it seat probably 140 so expect more intimate performances. The do 45min lunchtime shows 4 days a week at 1pm as well as evening shows.

A nice little bar with reasonable prices for pre and post drinks. Nice little place once you find it.

Quite a charming little theatre down a side street in the farringdon area that I never knew existed...
The basement bar was quite small and a little crowded pre-show, but the staff were friendly and the whole team seems great!
Production was simple but very entertaining and the seats were perfectly comfortable with just about enough space for someone with long legs.

I'll be back again if another show catches my eye!

Good venue for small scale productions. A simple theatre in the heart of London with a modest sized stage and room for around 100 seats. Regularly runs productions from local theatre groups. Friendly staff and a simple basement bar make this a nice evening out with friends. Disabled access is limited due to lots of stairs.

A cute little theatre hidden away in the backstreets of Blackfriers. SEDOS host their productions there which are always of high quality and very entertaining. The actual theatre was built over a swimming pool and has a bar attached to it.

Awesome little venue. Properly raked seating means sightlines are good even at the back. Versatile stage area. It's an old swimming pool so look out for the old stone edge to the pool under your feet as you walk into the theatre area!

Tiny off west'end theatre in the basement of the bridewell institute next door to st brides church. Used by sem-professional companies to put on high quality imaginative stagings. Give it a go if you like theatre

Great little theatre just off Fleet Street. We came to see A Chorus Line which was really professional and entertaining. Only complaint was the seating, it got a little uncomfortable after a while.

I've performed on this stage and viewed performances here too and it is a delight to be in. The staging is creative and interesting and the bar is excellent for after show drinks :)

Very cute small theatre. I went there to see a play from a colleague from work and i really enjoyed it. There is a pub in the building to get you started or for a good after party!

Host venue for our London Festival of Magic each year. Great teamwork every year from Mikey and the team at the Bridwell.

Lovely little theatre. Chairs are a little uncomfortable. One of the most reasonable theatre bars I've ever drunk in

cute little place, ideal for amateur shows. Recently watched 'rent' the musical here, which was fantastic!

Lovely little performance space, with a small bar and friendly staff. Tucked away but easy enough to find.

A splendid intimate theatre. Home of the Gloc opera company amongst others. I highly recommend a visit.

Very creative with space they have. However I do hear they are moving to a new building. GOOD GUYS.

Lovely small theatre with a nice basement bar. Theatre seats aren’t the most comfortable however.
