Bit pricey but nice to be able to return to table at the interval - however, coffee lukewarm when got to table. Ordered roast potatoes as a side dish and got boiled new potatoes and waiter said they were roast new potatoes!!! In general good quality meal with imaginative deserts.

Set menu choices were rather limited, but everyone really enjoyed what they had. On most menus, usually struggle to decide which (of several) starters to choose. Nothing took any of our groups’ fancy (which is unusual). Mains and desserts were delicious. Had to hunt for staff to be able to pay the bill, and were running short of time before the start of the show.

Food quality was excellent. We booked for 5.45pm and the food came at the right speed to time with the 7.30pm show, we managed 3 courses with coffee.

My friend and I had a lovely meal. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable and the food was delicious. We particularly liked the option of having coffee during the theatre performance interval. It's an ideal venue for a lovely meal whether you are attending the theatre or not. We would hope to make a return visit in the not too distant future

Food was superb, the lamb was particularly excellent. The service was attentive without being too much. Fine dining without the fine dining price tag.

Overpriced for what you get.- £55 for two courses and a bottle of water is a bit much when one has already spent money ontheatre tickets. Suppose it’s because you have a captive audience. Also, had to ask a passing waiter to take our order after a 15 minute wait.

We were a group of 4 who enjoyed excellent service and a delicious meal before the theatre. Fortunately we had reserved a table because the restaurant was full! A thoroughly enjoyable experience - definitely recommended!

The staff were delightful. The food was good, but not exceptional. I found my cod under-seasoned and slightly over-cooked, but my goats cheese starter was delicious. We are big foodies and are probably more critical than your average customer. The staff were delightful and we would be happy to eat here again.
