Went for the January offer which is always excellent value; great choice, good quality cooking and a little different from usual. Service as always very good. Wine was very good too , particularly for a deal of this kind. Great table with view over square.

We booked for 30 people party on Saturday, function room lacked style, was just pretentious. Food from set menu was mediocre at least, not to say poor, especially fish-cake recommended highly by staff - bland and ready meals from supermarket taste and look better. Presentation food leaves a lot to be desired. Service was not great, interrupting conversations, at some... More

Excellent food (Steak), atmosphere and service. Been here many times before for Business Breakfasts, drinks in the Oyster Bar and Lunch and Dinners in the Grill Room. Service is consistently good. Food is always great and the Hazelnut Hot Chocolate is perfect :)

We visited this restaurant for a family celebration evening. We were given a well positioned booth with round table; we were made very welcome from the minute we entered. We were well attended to by the staff. The food and service were excellent throughout the evening, with a nice friendly atmosphere. A special mention must go to Daniel, the waiter,... More

Me and my family visited the grill on xmas day. When we arrived it was extremely busy and probably waited half an hour for our table, this was fine as we sat in the bar! Food and drink were of a high standard, and definitely merits the price we paid, however, service was a bit off at times, for example,... More

Myself, and two friends, dined in this restaurant last night. This is not our first visit, and it won't be our last one. We had a lovely meal, and the service from Stuart, who was our waiter, was excellent. The atmosphere was good, and we enjoyed listening to a pianist whilst eating. We would definitely recommend this place, both to... More

I visited for dinner with 2 friends between Christmas and New Year. We ate off the pre-theatre menu which had a decent selection of dishes. The food was tasty and service was generally good, aside from one waiter who insisted on topping up our wine rather than letting me do it, then poured wine into my water glass... Overall though,...
