"With three stages of its own, Q has a remarkably busy and often exciting programme. And we do love that bar" [Metro Magazine, Best of 2014 Honourable Mention]

"Q Theatre has really nailed the hospo side of going to the theatre - the food is great as is the service and the bar well stocked and attractive. All in all, it's an especially fine way to positively contribute to the complete theatre-going experience" [Theatreview]
