Absolutely brilliant! A well deserved standing ovation. Ate in the restaurant prior to show-good food and value for money when combining with a show. So lucky to have this venue.

The Wycombe Swan is the worst theatre I've visited in a long time. The show's they put on are generally awful in choice, the theatre itself is unattractive and run down and the people working front of house are generally rude. It needs new management...More

I have never found a theatre or events venue that gives the expected finish time of a show. I believe this is due to it being a live performance and allows for any unexpected changes to the programme. However, I have... More
