The award-winning theatre presents new British writing and premieres of new plays, musical theatre, and rarely seen rediscovered 19th- and 20th-century plays. Under the artistic direction of Neil McPherson, the theatre attracts the finest creative talent and regularly transfers productions to the West End and Off-Broadway.

Such an odd location, as some of these pub theatres often are. It's in the middle of a fork in the road and has a cute pale green exterior. The bar area is pretty small - they sell pizzas too if you want to go for a pre-show meal - although there's not really much seating area. The theatre itself is cute and small.
