Pre show meal and very warm welcome with a decent menu. Food well presented but uninspiring. Good value though for pre theatre discount.

The menu is not overly large but... More

Visited to celebrate a family birthday. Service relaxed and friendly without being over the top; pleasant convivial atmosphere. Not a huge choice of food (but supplemented by a "Specials" board), many ingredients locally sourced and everyone in the party was able to choose something they liked.

Went for a meal for my uncle's 50th, the food was lovely, great service, I though they done really well to bring out all the food at the same time and for it all to be warm. This is the 3rd time I've been and I would defiantly recommend it as somewhere to go for a nice meal, especially if... More
