Lovely food, friendly staff

We ate here before going to theatre on Saturday evening. We sat upstairs in the dining room. The menu has a good selection of dishes and are reasonably priced. The food was delicious, the service was excellent. we will definitely be returning.

I hadn't eaten here for quite some time, not since they have changed their format and I can't say it has changed for the better. First of all the restaurant is now up two flights of very narrow, steep stairs whereas previously it was on the ground floor. The number of people eating there before a very popular matinee at...

Researched this place and their £5 lunch menu took my eye. Was seated upstairs and offered the menu advertising that deal only to be told that deal was only available downstairs as that was normally reserved for the corporates! Moved downstairs but not offered the menu with this deal on it, had to ask for it. To be fair the... More

Went here after looking at the other reviews. Have to say we were a bit disappointed as we walked in and downstairs was a bit dirty looking. You go up some grim brown carpeted stairs (watch out of the holes). Take a torch because the stairway and landings really dull. Upstairs the decor was very tired and you are met... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. It says on the outside that they are friendly and they lived up to their promise. Food was good too. Would recommend.

We had the dinner here, it's a quite nice restaurant, it's not the best one but the atmosphere and the people were ok. Good service, busy restaurant, really enjoyed the main (chargrilled fish with roasted potatoes), we've got whitebait and calamari as a starter (calamari really nice, whitebait awful, smelly, we couldn't eat them, nobody asked us if it was...

The staff are very charismatic and will do what they can to help. The food is actually very pleasant, the desserts especially, the waiter even managed to guess all of our desserts correctly which was pretty fun. They got the bill slightly wrong but it was quickly corrected.

We have eaten here many times over the years for pre-theatre dining, this was the first time we have been since it has changed to bar/bistro dining and I am sorry to say we won't be going back. We chose to eat upstairs in the bistro restaurant. The menu was very limited, We chose Cajun chicken pieces with salad and... More

We'd booked a table at this restaurant as we were going to a show at the Mayflower. The previous restaurant we'd visited down the road was not up to scratch. This was the complete opposite. Friendly, helpful staff, excellent food and a nice atmosphere. The food servings were ample (we had the swordfish). The service was quick - we were... More

Had a meal there before a show. Clearly the restaurant is geared towards people visiting the Mayflower opposite. It has a fairly basic menu, but the food was good and served quickly. Recommended!
