Was made to feel that we was a second class citizen and we was made to pay for our meal half way though our 3coarse meal and the other guest paid in the interval

Just poor. Service lacklustre, late food, wrong orders, late serving and in the end late into theatre so it was a rush to get into our seats for the show. Same in the interval! For a theatre to get their own serving and timings wrong...More

Yes. We normally have tea during the interval still served at our table. Another nice aspect is that you can leave your coats in the restaurant so don't have to queue up to get them back from cloakroom.
