Absolutely excellent all round. Booked the prosecco afternoon tea and was perfect in every way. Waitress even took an order for drinks in the interval so we could come back to our table and drinks were waiting.

We visited the Birmingham Hippodrome to see Miss Saigon. The show was excellent - we thoroughly enjoyed the performance. The theatre was lovely - the seats comfortable (ish) and we had a great view of the stage.

A stunning production, having seen the show in London two years ago, we took some friends to experience the full Miss Saigon Experience, it's hard to discribe the effect the show has on you, other than to see you must see it

You can but it's probably quicker to walk to grand central. 5 minutes away at the most.
