A delightful theatre
Dec 2019
Two seniors took their granddaughter to the 'Panto' and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The tiering of the seats means that even smaller children can see well, and the size of the theatre gives a very intimate feel to the show.
The show itself was superb, quality front line actors, and the supporting young people gave a fine display. Scenery is a little 'unstable' but for an truly wonderful evenings entertainment, it would be hard to beat.
I would mention that we also visited Newark for their 'Panto' which was also very good, but we really believe that the Grantham one was better !!

Better choices elsewhere for food and drink
Jan 2020 • Couples
Expensive cafe with very average quality of produce especially the coffee which is like water! We live local so wanted to try it out as it looks the part. Looks are deceiving!
However as an entertainment venue then it’s absolutely fine as it provides lots of great shows.

"Five star" ...
Nov 2019
Not been here before ... it has an air of history but I don't know how old it really is. The Theatre seating is arranged on a steep incline so every gets a good view of the stage. They run the bar well as people got severed quickly at the interval.

We went to see our favourite swing band, FIVESTAR SWING. Chris and the band entertained us to a brilliant medley of songs, beautifully played and sung. An enjoyable evening all round.

Taking five...
Feb 2019 • Solo
Finished appointments, feeling hungry so popped in for a bite.
Delicious mature cheddar cheese sandwich with tomato chutney was my choice. Comes with fresh salad and some crisps. Choice of brown or white bread. Very reasonable and truly tasty.
It can get quite busy, plenty of space to sit, they even have sofas if you want to relax with extra comfort.
Ideal to sit with a coffee while deciding what to book

Coffee
Nov 2018 • Couples
It was late afternoon and my wife and I wanted a drink we decided to visit this establishment.
The café is basic décor and the seating is satisfactory.
The place was almost empty but the chap left off from his paperwork and served us. We had a coffee and a hot chocolate. Both were reasonable but not that hot.
There wasn’t a great choice of food and so we decided to give it a miss.
Would we return we might but I suspect that we won’t return to Grantham very often as it is a bit downmarket.
There is great potential for the town to improve but it gave us the impression that it does not want to.

Box office and cafe
Sep 2018 • Couples
we came here as we had to buy tickets for a 'Gravity Fields' event - had to queue whilst the three staff behind the desk chatted and got themselves organised (this was 11.50 am and the show started at 12.00). Then they insisted in taking our names and addresses, not time to argue but not sure why data protection act allows them to store this info about me?
After the event (next door at the museum) we came back for a quick lunch. The cafe is at the rear and doesn't seem very well known as despite being in the middle of their festival there was plenty of places to sit (1.00 pm) - service OK, food looked shop-bought but OK

GREAT TIME, AS ALWAYS
Jul 2018 • Family
We went there on Saturday to see the Science Dome Show and it was great fun an informative, our 11 year old daughter had a great time as did all the other kids there. We have been many times to various shows, the theatre is lovely and the chairs are comfortable with a good view of the stage. Outside in the other areas are various exhibitions which change throughout the year and there is a cafe that serves hot and cold food. The only slight problem can be parking, especially if the road is closed due to activities as it was when we went, but there is a multi-storey car park a few minutes walk away. Nice place and we always enjoy our visits.
