Had Pre Theatre menu, food was enjoyable but be sure to double check you're bill as we were charged for deserts we didn't have. Had just left, had to return to get sorted. Which it was amicably.

Went for Christmas dinner last year. Great menus with loads of choice from Chinese to traditional Christmas dinner. Staff were a bit rushed and the restaurant seemed like everyone was crushed in. It was an enjoyable day with lovely food and good service.
