Food and restaurant were both lovely. Only criticism would have been overall the area and restaurant was very quiet. Needed a few more people to help make the atmosphere a little more charged.

The waitress was lovely! And may well have been the best peppercorn sauce I’ve tasted.

All in all, cones highly recommend.

Friendly service. Good choice for drinks. Starter and desserts were great but main course choice for set dinner menu pre-theatre was limited.

Wonderful chef, interesting, eclectic menu. Everything we tried had delightful flavor combinations. This was, by far, the best dinner we had in our 3.5 week tour of the U.K. and Ireland...and we had a lot of very nice dinners.

Food fantastic, obviously a brilliant chief , thanks. Waiters need more training. Cocktails, starters and wine all came together and felt waiter could be more knowledgeable about menu, however were very polite and nice people serving . Shame piano starts so late, booked table for 7pm on Friday and didn’t hear piano .

We went before the theatre on 4th September. I did phone and ask if there was a pre-theatre menu as we wanted to make sure we would complete the meal before the performance and also set menus tend to be less expensive. I was told there would be a new pre-theatre menu available. We were disappointed therefore to find only the a la carte menu was on offer. The food was excellent but as anticipated we did not have time for a dessert. The only small complaint was that drinks we ordered to go with the main course did not arrive until we were half way through eating and only then when I chased them.

The food was excellent, our only problem was that the servie was quite slow, due to a small number of staff trying to serve a large number of diners and people having drinks before the theatre.
The staff were charming,and doing their best, but more were required.

We were there on Tuesdays Steak Night and we both enjoyed excellent steaks. The starters and desserts were also excellent. We would thoroughly recommend Teatro for any occasion but it is a great start to the evening when attending a show at the Barn Theatre

We had booked a pre-theatre meal. There didn't seem to be any hurry to take our order and we ended up receiving our dessert at 7.20 so it all felt very rushed from being there at 5.45.
Quality of the food was good but feel it is very over priced for a pre-theatre meal, higher than in some London restaurants where I have had pre-theatre meals.
My husband had salmon/cheese souffle and a trifle for £29.95! When you only have a few options and starters and desserts are already prepared that does seem very expensive.
We do enjoy the food in Teatro and maybe would choose not to do pre-theatre again and just come for the a la carte menu.

This is the 3rd time me and my girlfriends from work have dined at Teatro and as usual it did not disappoint. We decided to take our partners along this time and they also have fallen in love with the place. An excellent start to any evening, we would all highly recommend.

The food is excellent. We sat outside for the meal and decided to just use the ‘nibbles’ menu for the 4 of us. We ordered what each liked and then the rest for sharing.
Brilliant!
We treated it as tapas.

A little surprising that only the special menu was available (steak night) - this is definitely not mentioned on the restaurant web site when I made the booking. We had to order a starter as a main plate as one of us was not eating meat...not really ideal !

This is my second visit and on both occasions I chose steak for the main meal. Both visits my steak was over done to what I asked for. The waitress and chef where both understanding and removed the steak on this visit from the bill.
Both puddings we had where uneatable and do they where removed too.
This was a terrible experience for a birthday celebration meal for my fiancé.
I will be thinking twice about returning.

The food and ambiance was excellent, however the service was a little disjointed and we had to ask for quite a few things. The white wine we ordered wasn't cold enough and our bottle of red arrived without the top unscrewed.
We like the live music very much so don't stop, but eating in the second room down on the right the
music was quite loud and we had difficulty making ourselves heard.
Otherwise all good.
Regards, Jeff Russell
