We ate in the diner and I think the uncut salad with spinach, pumpkin, peas, beans, corn, barley, and toasted almonds ( plus chicken and avocado) was one of the most delicious and filling salads I've ever eaten! Plus the service and atmosphere were delightful - a great light dinner - loved it!

The food here is really good and the ambience of the restaurant is great. It's a good place just for drinks but also for relaxed dining. Had a couple of instances of quite slow food service here, however the staff are generally great so as long as you're not in a rush I'd highly recommend Trunk for lunch or dinner.

Quick and convenient for pre-theatre dining. Although we did not book on a Saturday night, they still fitted us in. We chose a number of entrees and sides and ate tapas style. Zuchinni flowers were very nice, carrot side was delicious, beetroot salad divine, lamb croquets good, polenta chips were a bit bland for me and while the broad beans and asparagus on the bruchetta were very tasty, the bread was cut a bit too thick making it difficult to eat. Prices were okay and service as you would expect in a busy place. Staff were very pleasant. Food was delivered very quickly and we were at the theatre in plenty of time.

I maybe on the harsh side giving it a 3 & was tempted to give it more. Was edging for a 4 but it was slightly let down by the food & am trying to be truthful.

We ate in the restaurant part ( not the Diner). Vibe was very nice. If you wanted a romantic dinner this is not the place ( noisy) but for a social occassion with a group of friends its fun but a bit hard to hear the person at the end of the table.

Food was okay. We ordered a Antipasti Plate to share - most memorable dish of the night. The other main dishes were a Risotto, a Pasta dish & Pizzas. The Agnolotti serve was nice but tiny, more entree size than main. The guys got a pizza each & they were tasty but not rave worthy.
Nice wine list. Staff were freindly & efficient.

If you are going to the theatre, Her Majesty's is a quick walk away, and the fast service makes it a very good option. If you want a nice meal with friends there are a lot of other options nearby. Thats why it makes it hard to give a 3 or a 4. Its convenient, okay food with a nice atmosphere.
