Aye here last night before Seeing the show Dirty Dancing. I have to say to food was just OK. Waiting staff were so pleasant and very helpful, went to pay the bill and we wanted to split it up and pay separately but was denied this by the manger (I think), Italian guy wearing black. His response " no guys... More

This restaurant is under new management and is now called Arbutus at Encore. We had a pre theatre dinner here. We liked that on a Sat night there was a 2 course meal for £18 or 3 course for £22. The menu is limited however. The only starter is a tasting platter of 3 items, small cup of soup, one... More

Serves good food at a reasonable price with panache and humour. Ok so it's probably not where I'd choose to go on a romantic night out but for a pre theatre meal it can't be beaten. Make a night of it and go !

Returned for a pre Panto tea. Restaurant was REALLY busy compared to last year's visit. Staff were friendly, menu choice provided something for all tastes. Prices are very fair. Food was excellent. Portions were huge and everything tasted great. One and only down side was the LONG wait between ordering and food coming to table. (Over an hour.) Made the... More

Great improvement since being taken over by new management. My husband and I have eaten lunch here on three occasions and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff very welcoming and attentive, such an improvement.

Had a nice pre show dinner here recently. The starter of pork belly was amazing and my main of fish was also good. We enjoyed it but it was expensive for an early bird/pre dinner menu, they have no menu deals like the other restaurants nearby and because of this I wouldn't return .

Very tasty meal here last night before a show. I had the goats cheese bruchetta for starters, the Chicken Chimmichuri with roasted vegetables for main, with a side of mash, and the sticky toffee pudding with rum and raisin ice cream for dessert. The highlight was the main - lovely tender chicken, perfectly seasoned. My wife had the Asian cod... More

Every time we have visited the service has been very good, the waiter is excellent, very friendly, efficient and charming and the waitresses are friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much bother. The food is consistently good, always tasty! Will continue to return and would definitely recommend.

My wife and I called here a couple of times recently. It's quieter and less busy than other nearby restaurants. I found the food very tasty and the portions good without being oversized. Lunch is £7 and there is a good choice on the menu. I would definitely recommend the honey roast salmon on a bed of noodles or the... More
