We had planned a visit to the theatre as our team night out (Solicitors Office) and had chosen a performance to watch. We decided The Round would be the easiest but hesitated due to the poor reviews. We were very pleasantly surprised receiving fabulous food and wine and excellent service before the show and during the interval. Well worth a... More

The food was super delicious and very well and tastefully presented. We had crayfish and chicken salad as a starter and everything was really mouth-watering, especially the way the crayfish was fried. Then we had chicken gumbo and again, it was great. The lime and ginger cheesecake at the end was the best part, tasty, creamy, with just a hint... More

Very disappointing. Cajun Spiced fishcakes were bland and weird texture. The roast vegetable side dish was a dish of not very well cooked bland vegetables. They are very fortunate to be part of the theatre and people come for the convenience otherwise they would have no custom. Manchester has so many fabulous options these days, many within an easy 10... More

We had looked for somewhere close to the theatre and thought this would be a great choice having heard good things in the past about it, my initial thought towards the menu was it was abit random, I certainly didn't see anything I was instantly drawn to, I also felt it was a little over priced but assumed I would...

The haddock croquet starter was the best starter I can remember - I could have had 3 of them! Lovely pasta main. But the service was soooo slow. It's nice to have time to relax but this was too much - for example, my wife did not have a starter and I would have thought that considerate staff would have... More

Tried to book a table from 9am this morning. I was unable to book online as it just kept coming up that the service was offline at the moment try again later. I rang constantly throughout the morning with nobody answering and finally at lunchtime left a message on a voicemail, as it requested, asking for a table for two... More

We've eaten here before and enjoyed it very much. This time, taking a party of friends for a meal before the play, we felt that the menu had become more restricted, the food failed to deliver on taste, and the service was less attentive than previously. Could have been an off-night? We ordered starters and mains - starters came quickly,... More

I called to book a table 2 weeks ago for last night. Imagine phoning Fawlty Towers and Manuel answers - It was like that.....I said I wanted to book a table on April 29th. The waitress said 'that's great, thanks you goodbye'. I had to remind her she needed to know the time, then the number of people, and my... More

Pre-theatre meal for four of us. The overall setting is great and the restaurant is light and spacious. As the play started at 7pm we went into the restaurant early, just before 5.30pm., this was a good ideas as we had to wait quite a while for our meals. We thought the place was empty because it was so early... More
