The Mill at Sonning

About

With much of the original structure retained, this 18th Century Flour Mill has been converted into a renowned Dinner Theatre. Patrons enjoy a fresh home-cooked meal - with not a microwave in sight! - before watching the performance in our 215 seat air conditioned auditorium. Pre-dinner drinks with a view of The Thames or watching the working Waterwheel in the bar, is an added treat. 
 
On Friday and Saturday nights why not stay after the show and listen to live music provided in our welcoming Waterwheel Bar.
 
Directors, designers, actors, musicians, of the highest quality help maintain its exceptional reputation.  Many new plays premiere here from established to young up-and-coming writers. All productions are created on the premises. Nothing is ‘brought in’. Rehearsal rooms buzz with activity. Sets are built in our workshop.  Costumes  designed and made in our wardrobe.
 
The intimate theatre seats 215 in the semi-round allowing the audience to feel involved in the performance. The elegant restaurant, separate from the theatre but within the premises, with views over the sparkling Thames has the friendliest young staff of waiters and waitresses.  A spinning waterwheel features in the cosy bar.
