“Good food, great dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Food was very good overall without being spectacular. Service was alright. We shared a lemon cheesecake dessert which was simply fabulous and a real highlight. Overall would recommend.

“Divine Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

A beautiful pre-show dinner last Sunday. Fords lived up to our expectations again and managed to impress a semi fussy family member.
