. We had dinner in the Old Masters restaurant which is a carvery with roasts on offer daily and is well known for its Aberdeen Angus beef selected from the finest Scottish herds. The service and food was excellent

Set in the style of a traditional carvery, the Old Masters Restaurant has a succulent menu with roasts on offer daily. The food is 100% absolutely amazing and worth every penny.

This is really an excellent fine dinning restaurant with impeccable service from all the service staff, from captain to the chefs who attend at the carvery. Patrons have a choice of two or three course meal with excellent roast beef. The time we were there, the roast pork was dry probably due to the hot light shinning on the loaf... More

A plush hotel with an old fashioned quality feel. We attended for the three course pre-theatre dining in the Old Masters restaurant. The service was attentive although a little over the top sometimes when your plate was taken out of your hand as it was presumed too hot for you to carry, even though it was on a charger plate....

Ate here as a pre-theatre package deal. The restaurant is beautiful. The starter selection was sparse. I had the roast, as it appeared to be rib, but it was overdone and tough as an overcooked round. We were provided with a liter bottle of water, which I later was informed had a 5 pound charge. My wife had a cup... More

We had a lovely dinner here before a show. The food was tasty and well-presented. The desserts were absolutely magnificent ... such a pleasure to find a selection as delicious as those we enjoyed here.

Three of us dined here before heading to the Apollo Victoria theatre which is just a couple of minutes walk away. Everything from the very attentive staff right through to the gorgeous desert selection was perfect. We all enjoyed the carvery and I thought it was excellent value for money. I will now consider this option even if we are... More
