Very intimate setting, the summer plays which incorporate the outside are amazing and really make it feel special. The actors are exceptional. Took our inlaws who go to a lot of theatre and they agreed it was one of the most unique and fantastic experiences...More

The large Cold Platter had some intruiging choices, lots in offer for the protein part, meat, fish, cheese combinations but the salad accompaniments come into their own, lovely beetroot infused jersey Royal salad, spicy red cabbage and peanut coleslaw.

The pre show supper is always excellent, and gives very good value. The range of salads and meats offered for the started plate could hardly be more generous. Clem and his team are always very attentive, ensuring a highly satisfactory dining experience.

A jewel. Fantastic atmosphere, never disappointed with service or food. Lunch is great and so is pre-show dinner

Staff were rude and unhelpful. Bar experience ruined the whole evening. Won't even come back for the show experience now.
