With space for 67, this bonbon-sized theatre serves the area sandwiched between Angel and Shoreditch and is a local treasure. The site’s entertainment roots stretch back to Victorian times, records suggesting the then music hall played host to Marie Lloyd, Little Titch and possibly even Charlie Chaplin. In 1992 artistic directors Cecilia Darker and Cleo Sylvestre took hold of the reigns, refurbishing the pub theatre and putting on a safe mix of plays, music and exhibitions.

Brilliant small théâtre over a pub selling décent béer - you can quaff and watch great plays - the Jane Austen was superb !

A buzzing atmosphere, friendly, welcoming, creative, exciting. There is always news here. There is always something to chat about. The owners, directors and the bar staff get to know their regulars, and welcome new faces with enthusiasm and a great energy. I absolutely adore this place.


Outstanding production of Romeo and Juliet directed by a young female American producer that gives a fresh take on this play. Here we find seven young actors playing fourteen parts, effortlessly changing from one to another. Totally captivating, we were thoroughly immersed in the emotions portrayed and entertained by the moments of humour, found in this piece. See it while you can
