A little amuse bouche cup of tasty tomato red pepper soup arrived too. Starters lovely and monkfish main presented beautifully with taste to match. Service attentive and friendly. Brilliant value £20... More

I went with a group of people to see the Millennium Forum's retelling of Peter Pan. It was hilarious! The actors were fantastic and the costumes and sets were impressive for such a little venue. You will most certainly get a good show here.
