This restaurant serves patrons of the Hippodrome. It's always packed, so you need to book well ahead. The cooking is high-class and the service well-paced and efficient, which it has to be as dining time has to fit with the needs of the performance schedule. We thoroughly recommend it.

Disappointing meal which lacked correct temperatures & dishes were over or under seasoned. Bill was presented incorrectly.

This was my third time at the Circle restaurant and my last. For over £100 for two way over priced for mediocre food.
Service was fine but food was seriously underwhelming.

For starters had the Salt beef Croquet which was luke warm and tasteless . The beetroot and goat cheese was ok.

Main courses were Chilli and Coriander Pork that seemed like it had sat under a hot plate for hours, the small cubed potatoes were soggy. The other main course was a curried scotch egg but again very average

Sweets were similar in quality. My pistachio cake consisted of four tiny rectangles with a couple of raspberries and a few blobs of custard

Not sure if the restaurant has fallen into the trap of trying to get meals out quick and forgotten about quality.

Miss Saigon was brilliant and already booked for Matilda but not booking the VIP experience. It consisted of champagne and nibbles at the restaurant table before it was in the bar area and then we went to the restaurant. Bread is an extra at £4.50

So so disappointed

We went to the restaurant ahead of a showing of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night". The menu was themed and a good selection of choices. My wife is glutton and lactose intolerant but they catered perfectly for her and adapted each meal to her requirements. Service was superb and will a good wine menu we will be back again

Ate at the Circle Restaurant prior to seeing Miss Saigon. As usual dinner was themed with the show so Asian inspired. Once again the theatre Chefs delivered, and with Emily and the rest of the waiting staff doing a great job it made for a memorable evening, Thank you.
