Located in the very heart of Manchester within The Royal Exchange Theatre, this stylish restaurant offers the perfect setting for a pre-theatre dinner or leisurely lunchtime indulgence. There is a subtle Art Deco feel to the light, airy interior, and huge windows running along the length of the restaurant only add to this feeling of space. To one side you can look down on St Ann's Square, and on the other, watch the hustle and bustle going on in the busy theatre foyer.

This is a place for real theatre-lovers - the menu is often themed around the show being performed at the time. On our visit, we enjoyed a meal in three acts. Act one set the scene for the meal ahead; a smoked salmon, chicken and cream cheese roulade with lemon and tarragon mayonnaise preparing my tastebuds perfectly for the second act. My main course, choux pastry filled with beetroot, goat's cheese, red onion and rocket, served with a drizzle of white chive sauce, definitely deserved a standing ovation. I was so pleased with my main course that I immediately called for an encore. I was not disappointed - my waitress returned to the table with menus at once. Although tempted by dazzling treats such as chocolate parfait with hazelnut wafers and mango and lemongrass pannacotta, I finally opted for baked raspberry and coconut cheesecake with a scoop of homemade ice cream and a tangy raspberry sauce. For such entertainment for the tastebuds you might expect to pay a princely sum. Not so at The Round; two courses will cost you £17.95, and you can add an extra course for just £2.

So bring a good supporting cast and head down to The Round to enjoy pre-theatre dining at its very best. A well-deserved round of applause from me.
