Had the 2 course meal and cinema. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant. The waiter was extremely helpful in advising which dishes could be served gluten free. I had a lovely butternut squash risotto and a delicious chocolate torte. Very good experience all in all :).

Nice surroundings & helpful staff, and the food choice is good if you're a vegetarian. Although the food was good it wasn't anything really special
