Good food but not enough space. Time is also could be limited which is not very nice. Location is good and easy to find. Must be better after refurbishment.

Never eaten here - i think it's closed for a refurb at the moment - but the pub/bar has terribly snooty barmen who couldn't care less how long you wait!

We ordered two cottage pies. They came in different style dishes and were not the same even though waitress insisted they were. The potato covering was fine but the slurry with finely chopped meat inside was bland and mysterious. Order of chips was fine, but vegetables seemed like frozen/no seasoning. Summer berry pudding was fine. this was around corner from... More

I had dinner here at the end of a rather dreary day, and it did help matters somewhat. For starters, I was warmly welcomed by the restaurant manager and immediately seated in a lovely table by the window (where I had a good view of the Noel Coward theater) despite arriving a little earlier than my reserved time slot. The... More

Met a friend here for a drink: good location, selection of drinks and service. Good place to meet for the coliseum and Noël Coward etc

Sub standard pub food but good service. Inflexible chef despite the £22 price tag on the rib eye and half a dozen chips.... Chicken sounded lovely but turns out was a boiled chicken drumstick and a thigh with a dollop of mash. And a large galas of wine was just under a tenner,... If your in London and fancy a... More

Went here with my husband and two teens. Lunch in the bar since the restaurant was closed. Good food but no service. The guy didn't take time to come with the drinks etc. And it wasn't a crow.... Alone most of the time. Decent lunch for 10 pounds incl beer or wine is ok so overall fine!

We ate here last Saturday lunchtime. Previously been here for a drink only and liked the choice of real ales and ambience. Sadly this time disappointing. One of the bar staff was arrogant and dismissive. The other one was ok. We ordered four meals, only three came together, my husband had to wait as they'd obviously forgotten his. The burger... More

My mother and I ate here last Friday evening pre-theatre, though we ate from the A-la Carte menu rather than the pre-theatre menu because we were using Taste Card (50% off food), and we both really fancied the rib eye steak, based on reviews we have read. The staff who looked after us were two of the loveliest people we... More

I've been there tonight with a friend using Tastecard. We ordered two burgers and a british cheese board. I ordered my burger medium rare and my friend medium but at the time of bringing them to the table they were left without stating which one was mine. Obviously, that was because they were both dry and over done. The fries... More
