Pre booking of table reserved on line which was easy to do. Looked at menu on website beforehand but it had not been updated so disappointed what I was going to choose was not showing on the menu which was on the table. Choose an alternative but when placing order at bar was told not available. Decided on the curry which was ok but hardly any meat which was disappointing. Desert was good. Food was served quickly and presented nicely.

was going to order cod and chips until i saw two different people send it back which was a shame, so i ordered steak and ale pie, my partner had macaroi cheese which she said was just ok, overall i thing the food needs to be improve maybe you have to much on your menu and you can not cope needs looking at

Very good value meal before David Baddiel show (which was terrific). Comfort food and salad bar, nothing over £9, decent red wine at £13 which we could save part of for the interval, and this and ice creams were waiting on the table for us at the break. Staff were exceptionally polite, cheery and helpful. Took all the panic out of a pre-show meal.

We used the Octagon for lunch as we were there to watch Peter Pan the musical. For this restaurant you have to order at the bar and the food is brought to you. There is a salad bar which is very well stocked with quiche and meat and salad etc. That can come with a jacket potato. I had the three cheese macaroni cheese which came with bread and salad. The vanilla ice cream in a waffle basket is very nice and so is the gluten free apple crumble. The staff were all friendly and attentive and we finished in plenty of time for the show.

We visit the Octagon regularly as the shows are always good. We always have a meal in the restaurant first. There is a very good selection on the menu. No starters though but 2 courses with generous portions is ample. The food has always been very good with great service from all staff.

When we book for the theatre; we also book for this restaurant! The two go hand in hand. Yes, it is convenient; but it is also VERY, VERY GOOD! Try; you will not be disappointed!!!

WE found service and food good and the presentation of food was very good and the food is cooked well but it is somewhat spoiled by having the meal served on cold plate leaving the food to cool too quickly. Also the dining tables are too closely packed together for comfort or intimacy while we understand the need to maximize profitable flour space. Never the less we enjoy having a meal pre -Theatre and everyone is very friendly and service is welcoming and helpful. We will return!

Limited menu, but good food. Disappointing that there are no starters, as one of us is diabetic and cannot eat the sweets. We, therefore, normally have starter and main courses. Service was good and staff very friendly.

Delightful, friendly, helpful staff with a sense of humour. Menu covers most requirements. Food excellent quality, portion size, and value for money. We now ALWAYS book here for pre-theatre (at the Octagon) dining. It has become an integral, and very enjoyable, part of our evening out! DO TRY, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
