At our pre concert lunch had to stand to eat our lunch as no free seats. Sandwiches and coffee were good quality but a shame we were unable to relax and enjoy them.

We turned up midweek for a lighter lunch and were surprised at how quiet it was. Had checked the menu on line although it has changed a bit. Very nice quiet setting with a view of the river/canal. Had a couple of coffees while waiting for our son. Lovely strong coffee but would like a bigger cup. We tried the... More

We arrived early for the evening performance of the Nutcracker and so thought we would eat in the Stalls cafe bar. unfortunately, all that was on offer up until 6.00pm was a few cold sandwiches, so we decided to wait and had a hot drink, which was only just warm. We noticed that other visitors were leaving their sandwiches. The... More

This is a review for the bar, not the venue or concert we attended which was amazing (Space Spectacular). I don't mind paying a bit over the going rate but £13 for a Pimms and lemonade, regular coke and bag of Starburst is ridiculous! Wouldn't get a drink here again, they should be considering the overall experience of the patrons,... More

Like most entertainment venues such as theatres and concert places drinks are overpriced, but needs must when you need a drink. £2.50 for a standard bottle of Oasis which costs just £1 in the local shop, and I had to ask for a glass and some ice. Coffee £2, nothing wrong with that. I thought I would have a pint... More

If you're there for a concert, the bar on the ground floor is busy and buzzing. It offers basic food and expensive drinks, but you're a captive audience.

We had dinner here prior to a Nigel Kennedy Concert. Very convenient as no hassle to get back in time for concert. Food was nice too good starter and decent main course although bowl of chips was minute. Speedy service. Room a bit soulless but overall a good experience.
