We enjoyed a fantastic dinner before going to our play and they serve a fantastic English breakfast as well. The service was amazing as well. The outside patio is beautiful, too. The cocktails are perfect, too.

You would think that in a tourist town that specializes in theater you could get a pre-theater dinner without getting the snooty treatment, but you'd be wrong. Apparently my family looked like tourists, or not the class they expect at this place. Several groups came...More
