Enjoyed a visit to this fantastic Watermill Theatre in a beautiful setting to see Tell Me on a Sunday performed excellently by Julie Prenger. We enjoyed a superb lunch and will certainly return.

Went to see 'A Little Night Music' on Saturday. In an interesting and beautiful old watermill the venue is always special and the performance and production were outstanding. A multi-instrumental and talented cast gave us a night to remember. Bravo!

Consistently high level of performance and variety, with friendly staff and a relaxed intimate setting tucked away in rural West Berkshire. If temped to visit regularly (like me) consider friends membership, where you also get to attend meet the cast parties.

As a regular theatre goer accompanied by family and friends, this local gem is as good as any West End, highly expensive show/play. The artistic director has come up yet another programme of events. The buffet supper either pre or post show is delicious and...More

This small and intimate theatre is located in an idylic spot by the Winterbourne Stream. On our last visit the sun was shining and people were sitting outside the bar and restaurant to catch the sun. Needless to say the pre-play meal was of excellent...More

We saw 'House' a few weeks ago and last night we saw 'Garden'. So enjoyable and great fun. A wet evening though us audience were under cover. The cast performed professionally though wet! An excellent performance. Very amusing and quite delightful.
