“Nice interior but not ok pasta”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

It's disappointing to eat out and know you coul do better. Went for a family meal and all of us thought the food was ok but nothing more. Ok pizzas (not as good as Pizza Express), ok pasta (slightly overcooked). Just really ok. Service was very friendly and the interior was pleasant.

“A very good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We don't eat out much as a family due to the cost, and I like to cook, but after getting Tesco vouchers we went for my daughters birthday. The staff were very busy to begin with but were so friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful with a good selection pleasing all our tastes, not a complaint between the 6 of us. Desserts were also delicious. the cake came out and we had a display of pizza base throwing which was fun. Overall I would strongly recommend after our one experience but make sure you check vouchers online as I think slightly overcharged because vouchers are so readily available. I need to add we went on a Wednesday eve, I believe they get very busy pre theatre so if you are not seeing a show avoid these times.

“Pleasantly suprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We regard ourselves as "foodies". We ate here pre-theatre as we had Tesco vouchers and the meal would be practically free. We didn't expect a lot & were concerned after reading the recent reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. We had a good mixed starter to share. I had the chicken & mushroom risotto and my husband had the belly pork. Both meals were delicious. The staff were friendly, efficient and courteous. May be we were lucky as the restaurant was only about a third full early on a wet Sunday evening.
