If you are fortunate enough to be able to afford the experience, it'll be one to remember. Top quality food and wine selections and "Silver Service" at it's best.

Alright. It was alright. That's the most I can say bout this place The staff were a bit surly The tea and sandwiches weren't great compared to the price we paid. It's the local grandparent haunt.

I went to this restaurant with a friend for lunch on her birthday. Its a very old building with stone floors and open fires, full of character as you enter. The set menu for 2 courses was small, priced at £22.50. We opted for main...More

We are coming with a group and the seats are in the "raised stalls". My husband needs a handrail to go up or down stairs and so could you tell me if there is access to these seats by stairs with a handrail? In some theatres there is just a central stairway between the seats and of course this can't have a handrail. Thank you for any information = Anne Hughes
