Try the pre theatre menu it's good value. The steak is perfect and so is the belly pork. Delicious food. Lots of different gins to try with reasonable prices. I can't fault the service either. The only slight let down is the toilets. These really...More

A selection of Finger Sandwiches, Scones, Jam & Cream, a selection of sweet treats plus a pot of tea. All served on vintage china in a relaxed and cosy atmosphere. You can also have a ‘Tiddly Tea’ by adding a glass of fizz.

Primarily a Wine Bar, We are an adult venue and do not accept children under the age of 14. A warm friendly welcome awaits you.
