    Delicious starter of beetroot kale ..and cheese, beef was delicious and apparently the curry was, too we ordered before the play so got our food very quickly after sitting down, which was good as it was after 10:00. We wanted something for desert which ws on the menu but apparently it had been taken off the day before, so we had none. Service very good.

    Good dinner pre theatre

  • (**** 22 January 2017 by Zoe Hope from London

    Three of us were given a table usually used for two people which made it very cramped. There was also a cold draft on my back which was unpleasant. The service was pleasant though slow which didn't matter as we had plenty of time. Starters were all fine and the venison main course seemed ok. Two of us had the skate wings which had the texture of cotton wool (overcooked) and very tasteless. Needed much more Lemon and capers. We ordered a portion of chips and got about 6 artistically arranged in a ramekin. Very limited and boring list of wine by the glass.
    All in all very over priced for a poor meal.
