    We enjoyed a pre theatre dinner. The food was excellent and very good value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful. Service was prompt, which is helpful if you have a limited time to eat.

    We were half an hour late for a pre theatre dinner but they still served us and very promptly so that we weren't late for the show. Food was excellent and staff very helpful

    Restaurant is very pleasantly decorated and there is a nice ambience to the place. We booked for a pre-theatre meal and the location is absolutely ideal for the local theatre. Staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming.

    Mall menu choice which means that the food is fresh not like a restaurant chain, ideally situated for the theatre.

    Steak was disappointing and motzorella globes should have been warm but were cold.

    Very convenient for a pre-theatre meal. Lovely building & decor. Our table position upstairs on the gallery was uncomfortable with staff rushing past every few minutes. I ordered the vegetarian stew and was surprised there was no liquid! Overall the food was ok - but small portions made it not very good value for money. The best bit was the cheese board.

    Food excellent and good value. Booked table at 5 and was advised needed table but 715 which wasn’t a problem but felt very rushed in the service with waitress hovering all the time
