This was our (party of four) second visit in eight days, both pre-theatre. On the first visit (Friday 14th), we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Two of us had steaks that were excellent - perfectly cooked and the knife cut as though through butter. Because of our experience we immediately re-booked for the following week (Saturday 22nd). This time three of us had the steak. All three steaks were under cooked - two of us didn't mind as we were happy with rare (in one case very rare) steaks; the third had to be returned to be recooked. All three were also a bit tough and difficult to cut and chew. A marked difference to the previous week, and we came away disappointed. The fourth member of the party thoroughly enjoyed the Duck. For both visits, the service was very good.

Always our choice of restaurant before seeing a show, & not just because it's convenient. Great food, quick & friendly service. If I lived closer I'd dine here far more often

Made a booking to celebrate my university graduation with my family. The food was excellent the duck and steak were some of the best I've ever tasted. The portions were perfect in size and the service was great. I will be back

My Steak was not cooked as requested it was very tough and inedible the chips soggy and tasted like they had been kept warm for hours they run out of mushrooms at 6.00pm put on extra tomatoes but never told me until they brought it to the table. I was unable to eat it but was never offered any alternative so left still hungry.

We had the pre theatre menu and it was somewhat bland. We had lukewarm watery chicken and cold tortillas for the chicken fajitas. Desert was OK and cocktails were fine. I suspect the main menu is probably better.

Staff very friendly both in the bar and the restaurant. Nothing too much trouble. Relaxed atmosphere. Menu to suit all tastes. Great for post or pre theatre meals or just anytime. Certainly recommend.
