If I'm passing at lunchtime I'll often call here. Big salads and tasty hot food in a spacious area on 1st floor. Same goes for pre-show food but, as others have said, it can get a bit busy if you leave it until after 6pm

I often dine here pre theatre and it offers great value food to suit most tastes with a good vegetarian offering. Counter service can be slow and if in a group you may not get to eat together if someone orders an item which has to be made behind the scenes but cheerful atmosphere and casual ambience makes this acceptable....

Yes, it's a cafeteria, and yes, everyone arrives at once - about 6pm, so queues can build up. Had dinner here on two nights, and would be happy to eat here again when returning to the theatre. On our second visit, we asked the restaurant staff in the afternoon if a table could be booked - no all gone. This... More

I use this lovely place regularly. Let's be very clear - it is a theatre cafe within the theatre building. It is cafeteria type service but the food is very good and the prices represent good value for money. It gets VERY busy before performances, so you do need to book. The staff are friendly, and the quality of the... More

We had a colleagues birthday here for lunch, the chef was very accommodating and allowed us to reserve a table for 10 people. Everyone's food was great and good value for money, however one friends arrived so late that everyone else had finished eating. They refunded her for the meal so all was happy! Lovely place for a relaxing quiet... More

The food is "home made" and wholesome - rather expensive for self-service but handy for the theatre. The restaurant is also used at lunchtimes for regular "get togethers" by e.g. groups of university wives.

The meat was tender and juicy, the potatoes chunky and golden brown, and the veggies sweet and crunchy. We couldn't find a place in the restuarant area, so we sat next to the bar. The staff kindly brought our food over for us. There was also a Vegan option.
