6 reviews of Norwich Playhouse in English
Norwich Playhouse has been host to a large number of acts over the years, from up and coming comedians to established stand-ups.
The bar area is nice, although can be a little tricky to get a seat, complete with an outdoor area that is lovely to sit out in during the summer.
Now the smoking ban is in place they rent out warm clothes such as jumpers to smokers nipping outside in the evenings.
I love the feel of this place, its so busy decoration wise and so much to look at. Always funny quips on the board behind the bar. Great range on offer and good set prices. There is a smoking area outside by the river. Good selection of plays on all year round. I say Lucy Porter last year - not bad! Go in just for an evening drink, very good ambience.
When I was in art school, I used to frequent this hangout quite a lot.
The place is a nice bar, with a great outdoors area through the back, alongside a theatre. Its a great place to meet friends and has a good atmosphere on most nights.
You can grab a bite to eat on a Saturday lunchtime, though it is very busy.
Norwich Playhouse is a fine old Norwich institution, tucked away down cobbled lanes by the river, right near the art school. As a theatre venue it puts on the more arty plays that don’t fit so well in the main theatre royal, but you can also catch plenty of comedy events down there. It’s also a nice place to hang out. They have a bar, they have a beer garden, so it’s perfect for summertime drinks. It’s only a short hop back into the city centre too, so it makes a good place to start off the night before heading up into the bright lights of central Norwich. Ahem.
Norwich Playhouse is a great place for summertime drinking and relaxing, situated near to the city centre. Although the bar is rather small, the staff provide excellent service and there is a wide range of local ales, ciders and continental lagers. It also has a large beer garden overlooking the picturesque river that runs through Norwich.
There is a small theatre inside which mainly attracts dance acts, ballet and drama groups, also hosting up and coming comedians as well as bands from less commercial musical backgrounds such as Jazz and Classical.
You can often find DJ’s or local solo artists performing in the bar, with music being broadcast over the speakers into the beer garden.
Norwich Playhouse offers something a little different from the large pub chains such as Weatherspoons. It is definitely a place for a quiet sociable drink with good surroundings and a friendly atmosphere.
