    The staff were very friendly and helpful. I specifically requested a table where we would be warm when I booked online as I have previously been there and been extremely chilly, as every time the door is opened a massive draught is felt. Not sure why there aren’t two doors to prevent this... We weren’t given a table out of the draught and couldn’t tell why not. It wasn’t full by any means but we had a 25 minute wait for our meal which is more than usually do when it’s full!

    Verde burger was really tasty. The best vegan option I’ve had in a chain restaurant.

    The restaurant was extremely busy when I visited and customers were complaining about the wait for food, but I had booked in advance and cannot fault anything . Food was perfect and staff very friendly, despite being rushed off their feet. They were cheerful and VERY polite! Considering angry customers. One member of staff was in a 12 hour shift, but was still very kind but professional. A truly enjoyable meal.

    Need more staff?? Need more waiting staff and only 1 chef that we could see? 45 minutes to take orders and receive pizzas is unacceptable, we would have ordered starters but could see wouldn't have time to eat them and were on a time limit due to Theatre bookings!
