Awful food! Dry burnt burgers. Couldn’t eat it and partner felt ill after his. Over priced drinks and it’s like eating in the foyer! Do not waste your money. Better food in Weatherspoons!

Are you looking for an elegant, sophisticated, yet charming night out? Well, this is the place for you. I took my mother and father to the Murder Mystery night in association with 'Little Chico Productions'. The performance was fabulous and the meal was faultless. The...More

A pre-performance meal here can be a challenge, because the kitchen has clearly not been sized to meet potential demand, which is unfair on the customers and also the staff. As a result the menu is quite limited and the wine prices too high. But...More
