“Excellent food and so convenient”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Much better food than you would expect for a theatre restaurant as good as other top rate restaurants
So nice to be able to come back in the interval for dessert and coffee
Makes coming to the ballet an even more special might out
If you are coming ro the hippodrome don't bother going anywhere else

“The best you'll ever get for a Theatre restaurant.”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

Fine dining Al a Carte style at the Circle restaurant. This hidden gem that I didn't know about ticked all the right boxes. If you are taking your loved one for a romantic show then the Circle is a must. You'll get served starters and main before the show then you can opt to have desserts during the show interval, it's just waiting for you on your table as soon as the half time bell goes. Brilliant.

Excellent quality of food. Was really pleased.

“Very convenient if you are seeing a show”
Reviewed 24 July 2011

My wife and I ate here when we saw We will rock you (highly recommended if you like Queen). It is right in the heart of the theatre so the perfect location. They offer two or three course meal option with various choices on the menu. We opted for the three courses at £28.50 each. My wife had the warm bacon and black pudding salad to start and I had the lamb skewers with minted yoghurt and sweet chilli jam which we both enjoyed. For mains my wife choose pot roast pork with bramley apple, savoy cabbage, mashed potato and cider sauce, and I had rump of beef with field mushroom, onion, and chunky chips it was all very tasty and we ate every bit. The great thing about this restaurant is that the table is yours all night so you can opt to have your dessert, coffee or maybe order a cheese plate for the interval of the show you are watching, so that is what we did and our desserts and liqueur coffees were waiting for us when we arrived. We both had the vanilla and ginger cheesecake which was creamy and seemed freshly made to us. The whole experience was great and while it is not the cheapest place (Pimms and lemonade about £6.00 a glass) it is worth every penny just for the convenience.
