pre-theatre dinner for 6
I booked a table for 6 and I was very pleased that all 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed the meals we chose. For the starte, I had the tomato and basil soup and it was delicious. My friends had the tempura chicken and they also really enjoyed this. All in all, we struggled to decide as there is an excellent choice on the menu. The service was very good and I am looking forward to returning in the near future.
Good atmosphere. Friendly staff. Good choice of food and reasonable price. Only criticism is there's too much food so if you get the 2 courses deal there's normally food left over.

Punchy cocktails and a good selection of by the bottle spirits are always popular, especially with groups in the large booth seats.
