Wow what an awesome pre show meal. My daughter and I went to the restaurant before the Grease Live show. Service was excellent as was the food, we chose the 2 course meal and was not disappointed at all. I would 100% recommend this restaurant.

We have never bothered with ordering vegetables in the past, as there was always plenty with the main course Not true this time, perhaps it's a way of not increasing the price? Good food well served.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Can you choose to have starter and main served before show and drink only at interval for those who think they cannot manage a desert during the interval ?

Yes. We normally have tea during the interval still served at our table. Another nice aspect is that you can leave your coats in the restaurant so don't have to queue up to get them back from cloakroom.
