Visited for drinks and stayed for some food. Not a great selection of draught lager so opted for bottles of Peroni . Better if they had draught. Bar was relatively busy and not many folk eating but we still thought we'd give it a go....More

Went for a drink and some food in the Whiskey Bar. Lacks atmosphere. Cold and drafty. Poor quality fish & chips. Wonky tables. Could be a little cleaner. Staff a little absent-minded. The space has so much potential but doesn’t feel that welcoming. Condiments in...More

Dined in the Brasserie on Saturday evening and was thoroughly pleased. I asked for my venison to be well-done. Previously I’ve been told that’s difficult without making the meat tough. Well, it arrived well-done and beautifully tender. Friendly staff.

For the play and a pint there is seating.For the gigs there is very limited seating at the sides. Be aware these seats don't always have a good view. If a gig is seated it will say so on the website before you book.
