I've seen this on 5pm several times when sorting by highest review, but it's always been a little out the way. However I booked it for a pre-theatre dinner, and it really is a hidden gem. It has a lovely warm ambiance inside, and the service was fantastic. Every one of us enjoyed our meals - my sister said the arrabiatta was the best she'd ever tasted, and the carrot cake was amazing! £12.95 for 3 courses is already brilliant, but to also get 25% off your first round is really excellent value. I would highly recommend it, and will definitely be back.
