We went for the first and last time recently, as seeing a very good show at the theatre. The restaurant is conveniently located for the theatre as in the same building, but many problems. Firstly, the food tasted of nothing at all. Just bland nothingness....More

It's a shame the "Supper & a Show" Package no longer operates, we have used that with friends many times. But we booked the restaurant anyway, prior to curtain up. There are the perfect number of choices for each course &, looking around the table,...More

Ruthlessly efficient service; our meal came within five minutes of being ordered. I had cod, which was delicious, although the lemon tart pudding was rock-hard and not lemony enough. The coffee was bitter as anything. The wine was good and the service efficient but not...More
