Ordered the pre-theatre menu which was excellent. Service was prompt and cheerful. My salmon salad with new [potatoes was very good as was my wife's dish. The summer pudding and Eton Mess were also extreme;ly good.

A very friendly atmosphere combined with good food. There are specials and an early dining deal. Our party dined from the full menu and enjoyed perfectly cooked steaks, chicken and meatballs! The restaurant treated the Birthday Girl to a candlelit desert! Perfect!
