"I Thought your readers might be interested that when I tried to book this concert I was told that it would cost 36.45 per person including a 2 course meal. However when I mentioned that I had seen on their website that there were special deals the price went down to 19.95 per person(again inclusive of a meal). As there are 4 of us going a massive saving was made! "

Check out Ronnie Scotts.co.ukbefore you order your tickets!! When you get there, click on July/August, then August link, then 'click here for dining at Ronnies' , then open the Menus windows,.When you telephone, mention that you visited their Website , quote the 'New Menu' prices, and hopefully you will only pay these prices-good luck!
