Lovely facility with decent shows. Service always poor with nice badly trained and poorly informed staff. Allow 20 minutes to get a drink on a goid night. Better, cheaper and faster to use local bars. Management do wake up.

The Swan is a good venue with pleasant staff. They offer a good range of theatrical performances (I have been to quite a few) and the quality is usually good. Nice bar area, comfortable seating and excellent lighting and audio.

Enjoyed a very pleasant evening with great friends watching this energetic and very entertaining well performed production. It is great to have such a wonderful entertainment facility near our home. Thank you Wycombe Swan.

There are three reasons for this title: a) the car park is handy, but it was designed for tiny to small cars only. A car such as a Mondeo would struggle to round the corners without scraping on one of the many sharp concrete edges/...More

Visited to watch a show. The theatre is nice enough and seats were quite comfortable. Car park is reasonably priced. The show we watched was great. Just a shame the drinks were so expensive, £10 for a small wine and Diet Coke.

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

Some restricted viewing from the very back, highest level but only on the extreme sides - you will find the stair hand rail is the only concern but as they're small square metal tubing it''s not as bad as it could be
