I went here for my birthday breakfast and really enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and efficient, nothing was too much trouble. I had poached eggs and they were cooked to perfection.My daughter had a vegetarian breakfast and she enjoyed it too.

Been told this restaurant is good and never been, so attending the theatre at night, we decided to give it a try. The main menu wasn’t being served, and, in its place, was a pre Theatre menu. Now my perception of a pre-Theatre menu is...More
