You could try one of the Côte chain of French bistro style restaurants for a reasonably priced pre-theatre meal; 2 courses for £11.70, 3 courses for £13.65.

I have eaten in their St Martin's Lane and Tavistock Street restaurants before going to nearby theatres and enjoyed both occasions. Next week I will be trying their St Paul's branch before crossing the river to Shakespeare's Globe.

Good suggestion from Dermot. If your budget is a little higher, you can get some good deals (set menu, very often) from some of Soho's better restaurants - look at Hix, Quo Vadis, Arbutus, or even the Ivy (will need to book in advance) for example.

The West End theatres are scattered over quite a wide area, so be aware of how far you have to walk between dinner and your theatre.

We had lunch on Thursday in Clos Maggiore, Covent Garden. The prix fixe menu was £19.50 for two courses plus a half bottle of wine. The ambience and service, but above all the food, were outstanding. I highly recommend it.

We love The Wolseley great food, impeccable service, and pretty central. Booking advised though.
