We went out here for a girlie get-together, which meant a lot catching up and chattering - so we took a while to make up our minds and actually order; the service was great in that respect, as our waitress was very patient with us and didn't seem to mind in the slightest that she had to keep coming back. She was also very aware so when we were ready she was straight over. She was also happy to answer any questions on the food. In terms of the food - really very good, good portion sizes. Tasty potato used for the chips, and nice sweet carrots. They have a house wine/carafe wine option which was a good easy-drinking-go-with-everything type of wine. Food was also very well presented. We didn't have to wait long once we'd ordered either. The desserts are also definitely worth a try - we got a few to share between us, and the Lemon Posset in particular was lovely. I only wish I had been able to eat more! - but I was full. All in all, a great dining experience - probably best to book if you go as group - but that's worth it as we got a booth table in the corner. Good place for friend get-togethers and for taking the parents. The Lion King show is literally next door, so a great pre-show choice as well.
