This was a great experience the food was excellent and the staff were very friendly We went twice and both times we really enjoyed our meal.
We live locally and have been to many restaurants in the area. We were just having a walk and decided to try this restaurant on the spur of the moment. We were greeted straightaway and seated with menus promptly. The waiter was very friendly. We ordered our food which was very well presented and very good. Also the food came... More
If you like a good English roast dinner that you do not have to cook yourself, then this is the place to go to eat! The food was excellent and the service was also very good. I would definitely recommend it to everyone especially foreign visitors who would like to sample English cuisine.

We found the service and quality of the food here to be very good. Our table tried several appetizers and entrees and were pleased with all. The restaurant also offers menu pairings for those attending the theatre nearby. These were very reasonably priced and made ordering very easy.
