    We had a late booking after the theatre. We were rushed through and made to feel we were keeping staff from going home. The booking should not have been accepted if they only had half an hour to serve us 3 courses

    We did not enjoy our meal here, which for three of us was the same dish, aborra peche , it came freshly cooked but that was the only good part, all of our dishes were overpowered with really hot chillies , the muscle shells were broken with tiny bits of sharp shell in the dish, and the other disappoint was the size of the food supplied, very small portions for paying £13.95 and was not value for money, one of the gents toilets was broken with no hand dryer in this toilet working, the manager however did take steps to take on board our complaints and a discount was given.

    Food was lovely but our table was booked for 18.30 and we arrived at 18.20. At 19.25 I had to 'chase' our main course. The waitress was very apologetic and explained they were very busy. No excuse! With 2 theatres on the doorstep that's predictable and should be planned for.
