    The menu was a little limited. Only 2 desserts and no cheese board, which is my favourite. The restaurant was handy for the theatre but nothing to write home about

    The food is obviously pre-prepared and possibly even off-site? The restaurant wasn't that busy but we found it frustrating getting service albeit staff were very friendly.

    Bit disappointed that not a few more choices perhaps a starter even if bread and dips. Food was nice but on the small portion size. Not much choice on Alcohol free drinks. Lots of 0% around now, majority of patrons drive to the venue can't believe you don't cater for them.

    A very pleasant dining experience. Excellent service, prompt arrival of food. The only negative was that the duck terrine comes without toast or bread: neither my wife nor I have ever eaten pate or terrine without toast or bread so this seemed strange.

    Service is always prompt and excellent, great balance, neither hurried nor waiting around for the next course. The food is great value, and not too expensive for the quality you get and how it's presented.

    Having dined at the restaurant many times, we were disappointed in the meal. I started with the veloute ( soup ) with an extra for bread . The soup was good but the small roll was stale. i noted that if I had ordered a nibble of bread the rolls were those pre-baked and obviously fresher. The insult was to be charged £1 for the stale roll. The main of the braised steak was very tender but the green vegetables had hardly hit the pan and not possible to be cut. Finally my wife had the special sponge pudding which was served cold - not enjoyable. On each occasion, having mentioned concerns to the waiter, the reply was " I will tell the chef". Really not acceptable.

    We had a lovely meal. The staff were very attentive, welcoming and efficient. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. the meal was steady;y paced to get us to the theatre on time but it never felt rushed.

    Food fine, service excellent, but noise level very high so will avoid this restaurant in future.

    It was very pleasant but I thought the portions were a little small. We have already said that more biscuits with the cheese would have been appreciated.

    We had a very pleasant meal, as we have had previously when visiting the Chichester Festival Theatre and of course the location is very convenient. Unfortunately, on this occasion the service was distinctly on the slow side. We had allowed an hour and a half before the performance started, which should have been sufficient, but we did not have time for a dessert course and had to drink our coffee somewhat quickly. However, that experience would not prevent us from going in future.

    Restaurant very nice. Would have been nice to have had 3 different choice of starters, hot main option and desserts. Found we had was very nice. It was quite busy but had to go and ask about our dessert as seemed to have forgotten us.
