Went for some lunch after seeing something at the theatre and wasn’t impressed. It was quiet, decor and vibe seemed gloomy. I’m not sure what the restaurant wants to be - it’s definitely below a weatherspoons and the food showed that too.

I eat here regularly for lunch and I've never had a bad food experience. The pub in general does need a bit of upgrading and some TLC but for tasty food, I'm happy.

Having read the food reviews and being an historical building mentioned in two of Dicken's novels, I expected at least a pie and mash, but just a bar, not a pub, geared to clubbers rather than pubbers!

Friendly staff, quick service and steak to die for! Highly recommend the rump steak, and kids chicken bites. Definitely value for money.
