absolutely brilliant. great service, not a very extensive menu, but our food was topnotch. Food was well presented and perfectly cooked. Staff could not have been more helpful, especially Jimmy. This is a hidden gem of a restaurant and we will definitely return. My only comment was the lack of wine choices, should have been able to order by the... More

We came here before we went to watch Mama Mia for my nans birthdays. The food was lovely and the menu had a good range of choices. The deal was a brilliant offer and the price was fantastic. The only thing I could fault is that service was quite slow considering we had to be in the theatre for 7.30pm,... More

Booked as a deal with ticket to Abba musical. Was quite sceptical as the meal was included in the price of the ticket. But eh, what a pleasant surprise, food was very hot, service was great, not a large selection of each of the three courses but sufficient. Chose homemade soup starter which was very tasty and served with lovely... More

This place offers affordable entry level gastronomic cuisine and is quite convenient if you don't want to leave the Winter Gardens. The service is not quite on par with gastronomy level.

Set menu, no veterinarian options, food OK but seasonal veg was terrible. Drinks prices ridiculous £11.80 for four small larger shandies. Was told had to use three 330ml bottles to make the shandies. Maths did not add up nearly a litre of larger to make four small shandies. Staff stated it was management policy, not their fault. No beer price... More

We went to this restaurant as part of the " Show and Dine" deal which cost us £36 as against the equivalent seat costing £39.50. We were a little apprehensive not knowing anything about this restaurant and the terms seemed too good to be true. However there was no catch they obviously wanted to help fill the restaurant as we... More

Booked for the show and dine, left to sit for 30 minutes before being offered a drink, then 1 hour before we got our starter, totally ignored by staff, final insult was to charge £7.40 for a pint and a half of lager. the waiter explained it was from a pint bottle so he had to charge for two pints...
