I've been here on a few different occasions. Watt bar on the ground floor is a great little riverside bar that serves great cocktails and food. Perfect before seeing a show

There are two types of dinning available, there are bar snack and restaurant options. We ordered bar food one was good the other we could not eat "Beetroot and Goats Cheese Aronchi Balls" The cheese was so strong it was inetable.
