Canal Café Theatre is based above the lovely Bridge House Pub, ideal for pre and post show dining. It is one of London’s leading fringe theatre venues with an award-winning reputation for comedy and increasingly for new writing. Perrier Winners such as The League of Gentleman, Daniel Kitson and The Consultants to name but a few, have all had residencies at the Canal Café. Our audience sits around candle-lit tables and is permitted to take drinks into the auditorium.

However, as far as i know, apart from the scenery, there's not much...more
The Canal Cafe Theatre is based upstairs at the Bridge House Pub. The pub is okay, but I wish to speak about the Theatre; because the theatre is what is really good about it. Although, actually, not that good at all.
The pub is situated perfectly in the heart of Little Venice, which is a remarkably picturesque area with great houses and a little lake; it's worth coming here just to take a...more
A very charming venue that lives above the Bridge House pub in Little Venice.
There is a traditional (but modestly sized) proscenium arch type stage with chairs and tables making up the audience space. This means that nearly everyone gets a good view and you have somewhere to put your drink when you are laughing so much you're likely to spill it.
Mostly comedy gets put on here but it's a...more
