Had a great Sunday lunch here. The food was delicious with unlimited roast potatoes! The service was friendly and helpful. There was no effort to rush you and you were left to chat without feeling that you were being ignored.

The food here is of the highest quality, close to theatres if you want a meal before the show, nice atmosphere, clean. I had to add things to make up the word count.
