Lasagne was great and the skinny fries with Parmesan were amazing. Only thing that let it down for us was we sat in the bar area before hand and there’s a very close outdoor balcony area for people to smoke and it stunk, this did put me off as when ever anyone came in or out of there this huge stench came in and the door would sometimes be left open a bit.

Great for pre-theatre, where 20% discount is given for theatre goers.
