Was in there recently and the food was great. The staff are wonderful and its not too overpriced. If it wsnt for the chef stompign around the dining area, it would have been perfect!

I have visited the Theatre Royal last week, the food was overpriced and the portions tiny. Service extremely slow, will not come back!

Nice enough pub but food took ages, small portions, no veggy options unless you want chips and too expensive for pub grub

Great food? only if you like lots of cream and a limited choice

.....I've nothing to do with the franchise or the pub or the company. Although I'm tempted to take up writing adverts now you mention it.

I've been back since and the food is still great. A bit more organisation may be required with the service and the music was a bit loud for eating to

Not a bad pub and the the food is ok. However reading the last review its pretty obvious that it was written by the new owner of the kitchen franchise! Thats not on mate, if u going to review ur own place try and make it sound less like an advert!

My neighbour mentioned last weekend that he'd been to the Theatre Royal for a quick bite to eat en route to the Playhouse and had been blown away by the quality of the food so my wife and I decided to take a look.
We were both very surprised, the decor is dated but somehow fits the building, with a truly outstanding, almost gothic bar as the centre piece.
With chandeliers and sweeping leather sofa's and gentle music played at background volume the atmosphere was thoroughly enjoyable.
We browsed the Dinner menu and the 'Specials' card and were a little put off by the price. Not because it was expensive but because it is not often you see Confit of Duck or Game Pie for less than 8.
However when the food arrived all out reservations were dispelled. I can trully recommend the food at the Theatre.
It is a must go, nothing near the Playhouse does food of this quality.
When we had finished I thanked the waitress for the amazing food. She said that the chef is new, is working a franchised kitchen and has been a head chef at various 2 rossete establishments.
We will be returning, get in now before the prices go up!

I have drank it this bar quite a few times over the year, but the last time about 2 months ago it was bad. I ordered a pint of Stella and it had a 'foreign' object floating in it. I think it was a tiny bit of a chip! Anyway bar staff offer me another pint, so I order a pint of Fosters and this baby is completely flat and tasteless, I was embrassased about returning the pint again, but the staff were alright about it (perhaps it happens quire a lot) any this time I got a bottled beer. Decor needs to be cleaned up and a better selection of beers would be a good idea also.

This is in a good location - and doesn't seem to attract the chavs and neds that fill the Omni. But the decor is in need of an overhaul. The stench from the gents was particuarly bad. And one time when I was there they's the BIGGEST TV screen I have ever seen - and it was showing some video channel with the sound turned off...why? And the bottle of wine at a fiver seemed like a great deal...until we tasted it!
