We arrived a few minutes past 11AM, but we're still able to talk our waiter into letting us order breakfast! We had a booth in the bar area with a great view of the St. Patrick's Day parade that was taking place outside! Beautiful venue...More

Booked a table for breakfast on Sunday and despite the restaurant being extremely busy the service was first class. The full English was perfect and everything that we requested was presented perfectly. Nothing to fault with this fantastic restaurant.

Food was comforting and tasty - welsh rarebit and the omelette arnold bennett were lovely. Spectacular, theatrical surroundings although looking a little tired. Only allowed the table for two hours which took the shine off a little but the slick, slightly impersonal service made sure...More

Is staff accommodating in terms of allowing couples to split one order of afternoon tea? From other reviews I've read, it appears that the amount of food can be too much for one person, but just right for a couple.

I don't see why they wouldn't. Although if it's charged per person and they see both of you eating they'll x2 your bill I'd suspect, after all they are a business.

I agree smart casual is OK. There are some very smartly dressed people. I went for a late supper after the theatre. If you are lucky you might even spot the odd celebrity.
