We had reserved a table, glad we did as several people were turned away as it was full. Only small, perhaps seats 30. The staff were very attentive and professional, I had the haddock, mushy peas, chunky chips and tartare sauce, husband had the chicken pie - both were hot, served on hot plates and delicious. We then had the sweet platter to share - very good followed by 2 coffees. We had 2 gin and tonics and a soft drink: £52
Will definitely go again. It is right opposite the stage door and very convenient for the Hippodrome.

myself, friend and mum arrived here before seeing The Nutcracker. It was quiet and the staff were friendly, service was a little slow but food was delicious, we all had the chicken and ham pie, for afters we ordered the brownie with salted peanut mousse (the mousse was very sweet)
The drinks were a little expensive but nothing i didn't expect being part of the Hippodrome.
all in all a great meal before a show and would recommend

We visited this restaurant recently before The Nutcracker performance at 1.00 p.m. We arrived at 11.45 just as the shutters were raised. The food was very good and the chicken and ham pie excellent.

However, although there were less than 20 people in the restaurant, the service was very slow. We had one simple main course each and a very hurried coffee with no time for a dessert, before leaving at 12.50. This restaurant is linked to the theatre and should therefore be aware of performance times. Our experience was spoilt by having to ask twice for service to be speeded up and having to rush our meal.

There is lots of choice on the menu and our food was really good. We had the carrot and cumin soup followed by jambalaya. I would recommend them both. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service good. Ideal for a pre-show meal.
