Called here for a sandwich and coffee before afternoon matinee at Hippodrome theatre. The coffees were good and we shared a "posh" fish finger sandwich which was well presented in a ciabatta with good trimmings. However it was a warm September afternoon and busy so we found a table just outside the doors. We relieved our food and there were... More

Having read previous reviews I was approaching our pre Theatre early evening meal with trepidation. I had eaten here previously a few months ago and was satisfied with the service and quality of meal, and therefore pre booked for Saturday evening. There were 5 of us, and all the meals were delivered quickly by friendly helpful staff. The portions are... More

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
