We frequently eat here before going on the Marlowe Theatre opposite. The food is good and the menu varied. There is a childrens' menu. The restaurant is popular with families pre pantomime season. Booking is essential.

A traditional, independent city-centre restaurant serving traditional English food - including Afternoon Teas and Sunday Roasts - freshly cooked at sensible prices. We are the nearest restaurant to The Marlowe Theatre and located just one minute from the High Street. The kitchen is open daily from 12 pm to 9 pm and the bar remains open until 11 pm everyday except Sunday, 10.30 pm.
