About Canal Cafe Theatre

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.

I have been here a couple of times before. I really respect places like this, in that they offer something that is different and cultural.

The best experience that I have had here was at the theatre above the pub. I came here to watch the hilarious (and gorgeous) Lucy Porter do a pre-Edinburgh Fringe performance. Not only was she amazingly funny, but she bought me a drink and a Ferrero...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
