Dinner Theatre or Dinner Theater?

It Doesn’t matter how you spell it, come out to Herongate for a great evening close to Toronto.

Herongate Barn Dinner Theatre offers fun evenings in a unique setting close to you!

From the moment you arrive at Herongate, you realize that this is not perhaps what you expected. A pretty county lane driveway opens up to an old Dairy Barn surrounded by farmland and big views of the surrounding countryside. Welcome to Herongate Barn Dinner Theatre/Theater. Come on in and I’ll explain what’s going on.

Hand hewn beams and a cozy atmosphere- This is the dining room, this is where the cows used to live, up to the mid 1960’s that is. Now, a cozy dining room complimented by a whitewashed fieldstone wall, a beautiful view of the farm fields and of course those hand hewn beams!! Herongate was constructed at the turn of the century, the last century that is. about 1880 in fact, using cut timers from first growth forests on the surrounding lands. A good old fashioned barn raising and there you have it, a structure to last hundreds of years! Herongate opened their dinner theatre doors in 1974 and has been entertaining audiences for close to 50 years with our unique version of a full evening out. Dinner and a show all in one location and the parking is free! To compliment the cozy atmosphere of the dining room, Herongate has live piano music for you during dinner so, come in, sit down and let’s begin our evening!

Herongate’s kitchen specializes in home cooked gourmet meals with fresh ingredients in all our recipes and no skimping on the portions! We offer a selection of tasty home made salads accompanied by a delicious bowl of soup that, you guessed it, is home made from scratch every day. We serve your meal “Buffet Style” so when you are invited, come up and look over our main course and we will serve you your choice of Beef or Chicken along with vegetables and potato.! Oh heck. why not just try some of everything… Herongate will also make sure to take care of your dietary concern so let us know when you are making your reservation.

You really need to leave a little room for dessert because nothing tastes better than cup of coffee or tea and a slice of home baked pie after a good meal!

Before we send you up to the theatre after dinner, our M/C will appear at the piano to welcome you and announce Birthdays, Anniversaries, or anything special that you might be celebrating. Perhaps some friends are visiting from out of town, they will love Herongate and you will enjoy introducing them to Ontario’s longest running dinner theatre.

Show Time!

The Herongate Barn has two levels, the dining room is downstairs and after dinner, we invite you upstairs to the Hayloft Theatre where we offer a proper theatre with raised & raked seating and a full stage where we preset some of the best comedy theater anywhere for your fun evening out!

So, whether you spell it Theatre or Theater, Herongate has what you are looking for in an evening out! Great Food & Great Shows at a Great Price!
