    I have been coming to pre lunch shows with friends for many years now. Yesterday 7th Sept we all agreed that this was the best yet!!!!
    The portions of starters and mains were more generous and welcome too!!! the salmon starter and the Pan Fried sea bass were just perfect, and so we four hope that the next time we dine it will be equally as good. !!!!
    We have had disappointing meals at times but we have always given our feedback,
    The young staff are polite and eager to please on all occasions, which is much appreciated.

    I booked a pre-theatre dinner for myself and two friends. The whole set-up was just right, really convenient and easy.

    We had a very relaxed pre theatre meal and the food was excellent. We were served by a young lady who was delightful.

    We had an extremely nice meal last night prior to seeing 'Oklahoma'. What struck us most was the excellent service that your team of youngsters gave us. They were polite, helpful, and eager to please. It made the evening so much nicer. The food was enjoyable and your team were only too pleased to help sort out the right food for my husband, who is very allertic to garlic. Thank you.

    Our dining experience was really excellent. My two dishes, tomato & burrata salad was just delicious, those tomatoes, wherever they came from were exquisite. Then the aubergine dish was superb, perfect amount and beautifully presented in good time.

    Very good if limited menu, lamb cooked to perfection, Would have appreciated Chilean the glass on the Wine List.

    I was disconcerted to find the beetroot/salmon dish had uncooked fish. Not that keen, but my fault for not checking. The sea bass was perfect as was the Chilean Sauvignon Blanc
