The buffet includes a very nice salad bar. It is simple, but definitely the best part of the dinner. The hot buffet includes a potato, two veggies, a boxed fish, chicken, pork and roast beef. They have a variety of desserts available. The atmosphere is as it states, it is a renovated barn. The cows names are hanging from the... More

I do not like the location of this place..its dark no lighting. If you haven't been here before its hard to see. Even when you are going to the front door..seems strange as there are no signs really..i ha to ask someone who was standing around if this was the door to go in. Atmosphere is cozy..down to earth feel..but... More

Saw The Foursome which was hilarious and well acted. However the barn itself is dated, came here 30 years ago and I don't think anything has been updated. Wouldn't want to change the atmosphere of the place but it could use some updates.

Took my boyfriend for a night out at the theatre. Have been to the theatre earlier in the year for another play and had a really nice time - good food, good show. This time was good overall, but a bit disappointing compared to the last time. Had a coupon from the email club for half price - glad we... More

I frequent this entertainment spot for a mom and daughter outing. The staff are friendly, the food is good and the play is always entertaining. It is nice to see a family run business do so well. Please come out to support this local establishment. Farm fresh and local talent. I will definitely keep returning. Have been going for more... More

We've been to the Herongate Dinner Theatre a few times over the years, as it's a local option and we like to support small businesses. The location is great, just off Altona Road in northern Pickering, and the theatre is in an old barn. A great, rustic location away from the big city. It makes for a fun evening out,... More

The plays are getting a little tired with the same British farce theme to them . . . the reason we hadn't been back in many years. Thought we would catch the matinee this time of Murder at the Howard Johnsons. Just as corny as I remember. Long lines for mediocre food.

Attended Herongate Barn Theatre and booked the dinner/theatre package. Food was very wholesome and plentiful. Restaurant is set up in a barn, great atmosphere and lovely location. Once dinner is complete you head upstairs to the theatre. We saw Lovers Leap which was excellent, really enjoyed the whole evening!! Great night out!!
