Best to book ahead if you want to eat before a show at the nearby Cliffs Pavilion. Fast, efficient service and staff desk will the pre-show crowd quickly. Food was good and reasonably priced.

We were in the mood for pizzas, so after a bit of research decided to try Flying Pasta as they seemed to have a good choice. The starters were tasty and we weren't disappointed with the pizzas, which were extremely tasty and cooked to perfection....More

A lovely welcome followed by some great meal choices. The wine list had a few gems. Got stuck into a lovely Tuscan Red. The pastas we all choose were eaten with relish. We’ll be back here in no time!

I would definitely have a 6pm sitting but as another trip advisor has said, make sure you book and you could mention it is for a pre show meal.
