We initially tried to book online, but nothing was showing as available, so we called and booked with no issues.
The venue is wonderful - a beautiful venue - previously a church, obviously!!
Our waitress didn't have a lot of personality, but was helpful, but the waiter certainly did and made up for her!
The food was fabulous and we all said we would happily visit again.

We had booked Friday evening seats at the Mayflower theatre opposite to see Blood Brothers.
We parked nearby for free after 6 pm.
We had reserved easily on line and were shown our upstairs seating by pleasant welcoming staff.
The dining area looked fully booked and there was a buzz to the place.
The waitress was prompt and we chose 2 courses for £22 from a set menu.
Lamb and fish pier for our mains, brownie and fruit salad for desserts, coffees and wine - about £30 each.
( portion sizes slightly small but tasty apart from the hard frozen peas)
We had a softly singing duo in the downstairs bar area
( the upper floor has a small dancing area)
I liked the small lights entwined around the wood and the retained original features made the setting memorable.
Will return!

A brilliant location for Dinner if you're going to the Theatre. Greeted as we arrived. The seating area upstairs looks magical with string lighting entwined near the seating. The waiting staff were attentive and nothing was to much trouble. We ate from the pre Theatre menu, 3 courses for £27 and every dish was superb. I recommend the tagliatelle with Chicken, cherry tomatoes with parmasen. My husband had the burger and said it was the tastiest burger he has eaten in a restaurant

Decided to go for lunch as we wanted somewhere close to the theatre as we had matinee tickets. Wow, what a superb menu. Gluten free options. Vegetarian and vegan also available. The food was beautifully presented and the taste exquisite. Duck salad to start followed by the lamb which was melt in the mouth. Cheese and biscuits to finish off accompanied by a delicious bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon blanc. The staff were delightful and most helpful, nothing was too much trouble. A delightful experience would certainly recommend this elegant restaurant. Looking forward to returning.
