This is the best Pantomine I have ever seen. We go every year but this is my favourite. Fairy Gokmother was excellent but Brian Conley stole the show. If you are feeling low this Christmas period don't go the doctors but go to this Pantomine...More

The show was great as were the staff, only reason I didn't vote excellent was the scrum to the bar, we couldn't order interval drinks as no interval and yet, we had an interval, just a small detail, but had a great time otherwise

Sound was distorted and very loud. The bar was like a sauna and the seats were far too cramped. I’m 6’2 and my knees dug into the seat in front. Shame as this has put me off returning.

The sound was so bad - loud, distorted - it was almost unbearable. Ruined what was probably a good show. I would think twice about going again.

The newly refurbished Mayflower Theatre seats are very comfortable, but it was rather cold! For some reason on a winters day in November they thought it necessary to have the air conditioning on full! So we had to sit with our coats on! My friend...More

Currently refurbished, it is a glamorous old fashioned beauty of a building. The seats were comfortable, the view to the stage was unobstructed, and the sound system was spot on. The only down side was the delay in service at their bar. It seemed to...More

I think it depends on the show and day you see the show. Fridays and weekends are more expensive. So tricky to give an exact answer. X
