    Really interesting and delicious food. Our vegan Rhubarb Pavlova was fantastic! Charming and funny servers added to an enjoyable evening. We went after and early evening performance and the restaurant was quiet and peaceful. More came in an interval but it stayed calm.

    A fantastic meal and dining experience. Good atmosphere without being loud so that you can hear conversations! The food and the whole pre theatre experience was lovely.

    As always this was a very relaxing experience with extremely attentive and well informed waiting staff. The food is interesting and varied but I don’t think they need quite so many Vegan options in relation to the normal choices.
