Slow service. Food was not tasty and very overpriced. 4 people walked out whilst we were eating our meal. Will not return.

Fantastic lunch before a show at the Mayflower. Excellent atmosphere, food and location. I can't believe I haven't been here before but will sure be back for an evening meal and a cocktail or two. Would highly recommend.

Not a very happy visit this time. To start with there is no option for 1 course on the pre theatre menu. Secondly the price has gone up considerably. £21 for a 2 course pre theatre - without wine? And the food was average at best. An finally.... 6 or 7 hours after eating here I woke up with terrible stomach pains. This lasted for 2 or 3 days. I had ordered the Prawn Cocktail and Fajitas. Thinking back the guacamole seemed to have a skin on it – and once I had finished the sour cream, there was liquid in the bottom of the dish, both of which could indicate that these were not prepared fresh. I suspect my meal had been dished up at lunch time. I should have complained at the time, but didn't. Although the management 'hoped I felt better' my request for a refund - which didn't seem unreasonable - was not even acknowledged. So beware. There are many other places close by to try!

Initially ignored by member of staff who didn't even smile to acknowledge is. Disappointed we were sat down "in bulk" with other diners rather than individually shown to tables. Then to be given menu and when we order told things not on the menu, why not tell us what's not available when you seat us. If you have a party of 40 of which 15 have pre ordered steak, why not order in more steak? Particularly for a busy Saturday night.
