...But the reality is that if I wasn't there to watch the excellent Snow Patrol, it'd have been 2* review. For a building that promises much from the facade and internal cafe, the alcohol on offer is the blandest of the bland in a halcyon...More

Not sure where the best seats are but be aware that if you are in the stalls in front of the stage there is no aisle in the middle. This has been removed some time ago in order to put in extra seats. I was seated in the... More
