The food was fine - steak for moi - although, for the price (c.£15.00 per plate) methinks the accompaniment (slimline fries and salad - served in little bowls - see photograph) was a little on the small side. That said, extra portions were offered to us - but only towards the completion of our consumption.
The choice of beers was nothing special - just the usual. The wine list was fine - as was that tipple or two or three...!
The cheese board was fine except for the (as usual everywhere it would seem) inadequate amount of biscuits / wafers. Fortunately a 'top up' was provided upon request.
The service was alright, if a little slow. This may have been down to staff numbers. The staff though were fine. That said, a nubile young foreign waitress (Eastern European) always had to repeat her lines to us - she was perhaps a little quiet, but, the loud (for the setting) musak did not help !
The bill for two came to £83.00 - ouch - it was good, but... A word of warning - a 10% service charge comes as part of it - looking on the bright side - no need to tip !
Good to see this fine old building thriving - even at what was effectively the back of stage area !
Niggles ? - aye - the loose seating has a nasty tendency to screech upon the hard floor when moved.
