The food and service couldn't be bettered, it was amazing. The staff went out of their way to ensure my daughter had a lovely birthday meal, even putting a candle on the desert to blow out.

We had an inexpensive pre-theatre dinner here. For what we paid, it was great. Service was friendly, food was good. I thought the restaurant where we ate was much nicer than the bar area.
