Went to see "Wicked" on 16 th August , didn't reserve a table. Varied menu to suit all tastes and pockets. Ordered in time to allow for 40 minute wait for food and be into theatre in time for the show. Unfortunately there was a mix up with our order of two appetisers and two mains. We should have asked...

My husband, daughter and I visited here on Saturday 16th at just before 6pm. It was busy but plenty of empty tables. We had a reservation for 6.30 but as we were early we asked if we could be seated early, the waitress didn't speak much English and after sighing seated us at a table close to the bar. My... More

So today my partner and I popped in for lunch... Plenty of tables empty but only one which had not been cleared and that was dirty. Food has to be ordered and paid for at the bar. Quite a queue for a late lunch and the place was quiet. Starters of bread and olives were ordered with mains to follow...... More

Terrible service! After having several nice meals and nights out here it seemed the best place to have pre-theatre dinner as this is what they advertise at the front of the building. It was a birthday treat with friends and we booked to see WICKED for 19:30. We thought that ordering at 18:00 he's would be plenty of time!! How... More

Hadn't booked and it was prime pre-theatre time on a Friday night so we thought we were quite lucky to find a table. Ordered food and drinks at the bar and paid upfront to avoid having to wait for the bill at the end. The drinks were brought to our table immediately and the food wasn't far behind. I had... More

The Green Room opposite the Birmingham Hippodrome theatre became the venue for a meet up with a new friend from Spain, who is visiting Birmingham briefly. The conversation was accompanied with a small glass of San Miguel. Around us were groups and families enjoying the relaxed atmosphere, many enjoying the varied English and Spanish cuisine. A little later we had... More

Booked table for lunch pre theatre for four, had to sit outside in scorching sun with no shade despite table next to us in shade being empty for the entire time we were there. Very uncomfortable and felt like I had sunstroke after an hour. We asked twice but staff seemed to want to avoid any conversation or questions. Have... More
