We have eaten here beforehand prior to the theatre. I haven't written a review yet because restaurants can be variable; this one isn't, in my experience. Good food & effiecient/friendly service (we had pre-theatre 3 course menu). I note that some people think that they felt rushed: we had limited time after work to get there & be fed &... More

We had a table for six overlooking the river. I had the Thai fiscaake followed by the Persian chicken. Everything was tasty, hot and nicely presented. Our friends starters and mains were also good. The cod portion was very generous. The waiting staff are attentive but not intrusive. They are very alert to the need to get diners out on... More

We had 2 courses before a matinee performance - we had a good view and good food. My fennel salad followed by pumpkin tortellini was excellent and the cappucino was strong enough to stop me nodding off later!! Dearer than Carluccios but better quality and a very good alternative.

We have eaten here several times before going to the theatre below, and never been disappointed. They enquire when you book, and then when you arrive, what time the play you are going to is, and then pull out all the stops to serve you efficiently and on time, without you ever feeling that you are being hurried. One of... More

We popped up for a coffee and hot choc on Easter Sunday, it's got lovely views out over the town and river, we sat on the balcony and even though it started raining you stay dry.

A perfect afternoon tea. Great service and the sandwiches were perfect. The scones were just right too.

I have eaten here before on a number of occasions and the Food is always amazing and bursting with flavour. I love the decor and the views are amazing. However if you are dining pre theatre performances there can be a logistical nightmare to get everyone to their seats on time ! I would say the restaurant may hold 100... More

We have visited the Rooftop Restaurant for lunch many times over the last few years and have seen it progress to its present consistently high standard. The set menu, at £22 for two courses or £26 for three, is really good value. There are only half a dozen choices of starters and main courses, but the choice is varied and... More
