Gary our waiter was brilliant and the service was excellent. The food could have been better but we all really enjoyed the Robbie tribute. A beautiful venue, just a shame it wasn’t busier as they were only a handful of people eating upstairs.

Live music, buzzing pre-theatre atmosphere which worked well to entertain our young kids. Very enjoyable meal and staff were very helpful.

A good spot for pre theatre eat and drinks. Staff were very friendly, though they could of just checked on us for drinks etc. Food was very good and hot, no complaints from me nor the people that were with me.

The food we ordered was excellent, although the salad, potato salad and coleslaw seemed far to much. The burgers and fries were excellent and enjoyed by all. A very good spread and great value for money.

We always come here before our trip to the theatre and look forward to a delicious lunch with attentive and friendly service. Yesterday was as good as ever and made our day. Staff were particularly helpful when we wanted to pay separately. There were 5 of us, and we do appreciate the way this was dealt with. We will definitely be returning.

We had a great evening here for a leaving party. Everyone commented on how lovely the building was. We did feel like we’d been slightly forgotten with no one coming to clear our table, but it was still a great evening. Thanks!

The service was very good and staff helpful. We thought it was a bit pricey especially as we had no choice but to buy the fixed menu. Usually I would have just ordered a main course.

A pleasant pre theatre meal. Menu could be a little more varied but would not prevent us coming again.

The starter and main course was pleasant enough, however the the pudding/deserts were very poor. chocolate brownie was so dense it could not be cut without using both hands and was extremely rich. Not a good quality pudding. The Apple Crumble with oats was poor, with raw oats on top.The meal would have been good if it was not let down considerably by the desert.

My food was average at best. I had the gnocci. Unlike any I have had before. Sauce tasted like out of a packet. Main cours -fish- was over-cocked. Not great and much worse than last visit 12 months ago.

We visited for lunch just before we went to see Miss Saigon. The Decor could do with A bit of updateing... we were sat upstairs and there was quite a bit of dust in the handrail right next to our faces which was a bit off putting. But the food and drinks were lovely and great service, we would return again.
