First time we have been here, the food was outstanding, reasonably priced and very tasty, staff friendly and professional. Then downstairs to the comedy club, compare brilliant, all four acts good but some better than others, really good, enjoyable funny evening out with friends we laughed over and over again.

Kind of "modern british" that tries to offer too many dishes from different cuisines (Japan, Greek, Spanish) without get success. For example my Teriyaki salmon was more a poached salmon with soy sauce. Nice atmosphere. Not watch the show.

We fell upon the cafe/restaurant whilst looking for somewhere for a very late lunch and were so lucky. The set (Sunday) dinner was just like home - except the Yorkshire pudding was 10 ten times higher and lighter - delicious! Squid starter was loved by all. Sadly no room for desserts. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Would love... More

We had a late lunch here and were impressed with the menu and the friendliness of the staff. Set lunch had something for everyone and the roast dinners were huge! We had delicious spiced squid and feta and tomato fritters to begin and watched the world go by. Laid back style and atmosphere, we really enjoyed it.

Found this by chance so didn't go to a show but would another time. Great venue and the cafe/bar where we had a drink was very welcoming. We only had a drink and a snack but meals were on offer. It also has an outside terrace. The staff were lovely and helpful.

We had dinner here before heading down to the comedy club on a Saturday night. We had steak, tempura halloumi, peanut butter cheesecake (with toffee popcorn and candied bacon!) and a pretty good bottle of Malbec. Staff pleasant and helpful. If you tell them you're going to the comedy club they will reserve you a table downstairs. Might be worth... More
