My partner and I ate here on Friday 12th before a show at The Playhouse. It’s a lovely restaurant. The food and service was great, and reasonably priced. We would eat here again.

Few weeks ago went for a staff night out here. Cocktails were good! Meat board was amazing and really a big portion to share. Porn star cocktail with a bottle of prosecco was so huge and too good to share. Will Come back soon!
