Great improvement since being taken over by new management. My husband and I have eaten lunch here on three occasions and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff very welcoming and attentive, such an improvement.

Encore Restaurant is under new management and my wife and I went there for Sunday lunch today....3 courses for £14.95. I had prawn salad, the salmon and the trio of ice cream and my wife had the bruschetta, roast beef and the trio of ice cream...excellent food and big portions. Definitely recommend this restaurant for lunch....any day!!!

Had a nice pre show dinner here recently. The starter of pork belly was amazing and my main of fish was also good. We enjoyed it but it was expensive for an early bird/pre dinner menu, they have no menu deals like the other restaurants nearby and because of this I wouldn't return .

Very tasty meal here last night before a show. I had the goats cheese bruchetta for starters, the Chicken Chimmichuri with roasted vegetables for main, with a side of mash, and the sticky toffee pudding with rum and raisin ice cream for dessert. The highlight was the main - lovely tender chicken, perfectly seasoned. My wife had the Asian cod... More

Every time we have visited the service has been very good, the waiter is excellent, very friendly, efficient and charming and the waitresses are friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much bother. The food is consistently good, always tasty! Will continue to return and would definitely recommend.

My wife and I called here a couple of times recently. It's quieter and less busy than other nearby restaurants. I found the food very tasty and the portions good without being oversized. Lunch is £7 and there is a good choice on the menu. I would definitely recommend the honey roast salmon on a bed of noodles or the... More

Visited with family prior to a show. Staff friendly. Food basic and tasteless- overpriced and bland. Goats cheese not good and menu should have stated "goats cheese on panini" not "goats cheese bruschetta"!! Also was hard to find the prawns in the prawn starter among the large and plentiful lettuce leaves! Food temperature cool- don't think we'd go again.

Went for lunch sat. What a let down. Soup was good but the ham and onion sandwich they served me had to be the worst I have ever encountered. Had to send out for the bread which was hard the pigeons wouldn't have eaten. Mentioned this but know all waiter disputed this. He offered to change it but had waited... More
