Food OK and on theatre nights service is apt to be a bit slow. Friendly staff and great bar - Serves Locally brewed real ales etc.

It has an upscale, yet relaxed atmosphere. The perfect place to eat before you go to a play at the Barter Theatre. Try the Riesling wine, it's very good! My favorite meal is the crab cakes!

I am always weary about hype - of which this place has a lot. My expectations were high only to be let down by the average atmosphere, food, and service. The lobster fritters, sauce and all, were cold. I ordered the filet of beef medium,...More
