We stumbled upon Else’s just as we could walk no further. We were welcomed and a cold drink for parents and mac & cheese came right out! Good bar food, reasonable pricing and friendly staff!

The place has a great atmosphere, the staff is friendly, the food is excellent and the bar very well stocked. And the best thing it is open late. So after the theatre is a great place to go and relax.
