    Dined pre theatre and highly recommend. Everything was perfect - the service, so friendly, highly efficient and attentive. The food, from a set menu with good choices, was just right. Good, fresh food, full of flavour and well presented.

    Very nice lunch had yesterday with my son. We had the 3 course fixed price menu which was excellent. I also had a cocktail which was a nice long drink for what was another glorious hot day.
