    Food average, service poor, restaurant cold. Wouldn't use again

  • ((*** 4 January 2017 by Tom Pattrick from London

    Waiter was very friendly but other then that service was slow considering it was not packed. We went for the pre theatre menu and the starters were good but nothing to write home about. Biggest issue came with the steak which was not cooked as requested and was of poor quality.

    Don't go here if you want to pre dine before a theatre show. Starter came quickly which looked promising but after an hour still no main course. Our waiter was apologetic but the really need to get their act together. Didn't have time for the rest of the meal so left hungry.

    Poor, wont be returning, wont be recommending, starter was cold , worse steak ever , no wonder the restaurant was empty.

    They made us very welcome. Not everyone was eating. Some people were only popping in for a drink. A section had been blocked off for us and canfles had been places to make it cosy those that did eat really enjoyed their food. I had the steak which I like rare. One of my colleagues wanted theirs well done and we really got what we asked for. Nothing was enough trouble.

    My wife and I love this restaurant as this is where we came for our first date 18 years ago. We always come on her Birthday in October but this year we were disappointed not to get a Birthday voucher through email to dine hear.
    We came last Wednesday for the pre theatre lunch, the pianist was fabulous,the serving staff were efficient and welcoming as usual, but the steak we both had was awful. It was like old boot leather. We have had it many times before but it has never been as tough as this before. It did spoil it for us.

    Poor service. Inadequate drinks. Incomplete drinks order. Food was cold.

  • ((*** 23 November 2016 by Lynda Ware from Oxford

    We enjoyed the food but the experience was spoiled by poor service. We were 'forgotten' and finally were taken to our table 1/2 hour after our booking time. We had to ask several times for dinner drinks to be brought. We had no water as requested.
