The food menu is varied and the prices for central London are very reasonable,although the drinks are a little expensive.The service was a little slow but when it arrived was good.Taking everything into account good value for money.

Great atmosphere- fish and chips was super. Server, Marcos was awesome and did not miss a trick. Great bread and butter basket. They had lots of specials for theater goers and it is close to everything in Covet Garden area and Theater district.
