Called in at lunchtime prior to a matinee performance at the Hippodrome. The food was good, large portions, served hot and very tasty. Bar area a bit chaotic as it wasn’t clear if you order or wait to be served with people queuing to order and pay. All in all very good.

Nice little bistro, we went pre-theatre show, busy but were able to get a seat. Menu was small but the selection was okay. Nice sized portions, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. My daughter enjoyed her meal but was disappointed with the soft drinks as they seems to be lacking in syrup and were very watery. Great venue if you park at the Arcadian and right opposite the Hippodrome so very handy - got very busy as the evening went on and more theatre goers arrived.

We popped in for a quick drink after a show. It wasn't particularly busy but we were greeted like an inconvenience.

We were taken to a table at the far end away from the main bar and then had to walk back to place the order.

The Americano looked like Bovril but didn't taste like it. It didn't taste like coffee either.

Overall, not a great experience. There was also a smell of burning which we reported but they didn't seem to bothered, once the finally understood what we meant.

Wish we'd have gone next door.

Whilst this venue is a great place to have a quick tipple before your jaunt to the Hippodrome the drinks selection and food choice leaves a lot to be desired, not sure if the food is freshly cooked or pre-cooked and frozen but it never tastes fresh, there is no zest in the food. The drinks selection is a little poor and since they decided to close the main entrance and reopen it on what used to be a fire door there seems to be much confusion by regular frequenters.

Staff are lovely though so for a friendly and nice little place to drink it is worth it.

Although the 'cafe bar' is almost opposite the Hippodrome Theatre and thus busy when the Theatre is open, at other times the Green Room is a little off the beaten track and quite. It makes an ideal place to drop in for a quiet coffee or meal especially if you want to chat with friends. We called 'off peak' and found the staff friendly and willing. The place is also a bit quirky which made our visit pleasant and memorable
