Christopher’s Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Not up to the usual Christopher's standard. Went for dinner post theatre and both our steaks had to be sent back as they completely overcooked. Replacement steaks were very good."
"It’s a lovely building, they do great cocktails and (grand)parents like it. Nothing very new about what they do but they do it well"
