The theatre experience wasn't bad on the whole. The staff were helpful and the seats in the circle good, although could do with a little more leg room. Have sat in worse though. The food experience however in the Bistro wasn't great and we won't be going back. We'd booked a table for 6pm, leaving an hour and a half before the performance. It was already busy when we arrived and service took a little while to get going. We'd both ordered the scampi but were sorely disappointed. It honestly looked like a child's portion. Six measly bits of battered crustacean accompanied by more crockery on the plate than in the kitchen...a ramekin for the tartare sauce, a ramekin for the teaspoon serving of peas and a ceramic pot with a few chips in. Certainly not worth £8.50. We had wanted dessert but due to the slow service there wasn't time and no one bothered to ask us if we wanted anything else when they took our plates away. Other tables around us were experiencing slow service too, seemed to be a recurring theme sadly. The young serving girls looked harassed and rushed off their feet and when I went to pay at the desk, one had a rather unprofessional mini meltdown with her colleague, exchanging somewhat annoyed sounding banter. I wished we'd booked elsewhere to be honest. Thankfully the show we saw made up for our disappointment.
