We stopped off here prior to seeing a show. The place is very clean and the staff were very friendly and polite. My only criticism would be the lack of choices for a small bite to eat. They offer a great pre-show dinner and not anything that I would call 'nibbles@. There was a choice of just 2 slices of... More

I ate here with my mother and grandmother before going to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the theatre. We had booked in advance for 3 courses, and the staff were lovely - especially considering they were all dressed very smartly in white shirts, waistcoats and ties in the 30 degree heat! The food was delicious and the service was... More

Very disappointing food service. Booked for 11.15 for a 3 course meal with free ice cream in interval. Slow to take order, and serve food. At 12.45 with show starting at 1pm still waiting for dessert. Had to arrange to eat this during interval. After which when queueing for the pre paid for ice cream, told by the host she... More

Was not expecting much at such a reasonable price. Have to say the food was the best I have had for a long time. Very pleasantly surprised at the very high standard, something I would expect from a starred restaurant - will definitely book a pre show meal again. excellent!

The staff were so helpful and accommodating. The drinks were made just as we wanted them. They even had soya if you are unable to have normal milk.

We booked to see The Sound of Music and took advantage of our Friends Membership by pre-booking a meal before the show. We were happy with our table by the window, my husband arrived first and he was offered a choice of tables. The menu had changed since our last visit but once again it was a lovely menu, refreshing... More

Small constantly changing menu. Lovely local produce, fresh delicious food. Smashing staff who are both friendly and efficient. The restaurant is a little basic but the food more than compensates. This was a treat of dinner and theatre for my husband and we really enjoyed our evening. We will visit the green room when we are next in the area.

A friend and I attended a Soroptimist International charity event at the Marlowe this week so, I thought I'd treat us to supper first, seeing as how both of us were coming straight from work. What a gem this place is. I would definitely consider eating here without attending a function or show. We ordered the two course meal at... More

We had a lovely 3 course meal before a concert. We were able to eat very leisurely, the food was tasty and the service excellent. Booking was very easy, on-line with the tickets and really enhanced the experience of visiting the theatre.
