    Tasty food but tepid. I like a piping hot main course. Tables too close together: this inhibited conversation.

    Delicious food and really lovely relaxed service. Doesn't feel rushed even though the service is speedy to make sure that everyone catches the shows they are attending.

    The service was good and the food fabulous, my only complaint would be for the process of the scallops dish at £27 the scallops were quite small and there were only 3, other than this everything was great.

    Delicious food, fabulous service and great atmosphere for pre-theatre dinner. All the dishes were tasty but my starter of prawns with hispi cabbage, courgettes and peanut ice cream was amazing!

    It is elegant and serves beautifully cooked food, The service is exceptional and prices are very reasonable. But most of all the pre-theatre meal makes for a memorable evening. we have eaten here many times and always had a great experience. We travel down from York and will also be booking a table for Jan 25th.
