Enjoyed the food ...the calamari was exquisite and steak very tasty Service was good until we paid then we got sass and rudeness from the waiter as we left which really left a bad taste to the experience Ps decor does not match the food in standard or for the prices being asked ... would expect something more luxurious decor...

Dear Steph, Many thanks for your review and your compliments on the quality of your meals. Orazio, your waiter, normally receives rave reviews but it sounds as though he had a "bad day at the office" and for this, he joins me in sending you our apologies. On decor, I do take your point but we made a conscious decision... More

I had dinner here with a friend on a busy Saturday night. We shared starters (king prawns and scampi). Both excellent. I opted for a T bone Steak and my friend had the fish special (sea bass). Both dishes looked and tasted amazing. My steak was to die for. Served with garlic butter and side of triple cooked chips. We... More

Visited on a Tuesday night so not too busy, staff were nice and service was good, had pate to start and my work mate had black pudding, we both ordered 'The Banker' burger at £12 each and then an additional £3 each for triple cooked chips, so for £15 we were expectant! To be fair to them it tasted fine... More

Dear Paul, Firstly many thanks for your visit and your compliments about the service. If you were charged £15, this was an error and if you'd be kind enough to send me a copy of your bill I will happily refund. Until quite recently we included the price of a side dish within the price of a main course. Following... More

My wife and I ate here today and we're pretty disappointed. The two of us had mains only and a drink each £75, now that's fine with me if my foods great but it wasn't. The steak was a cracking piece of meat however my medium rare steak was medium well, I don't expect to pay money and get it... More

Amazing experience, amazing food! Nothing to complaint about, thanks a lot for the beautiful atmosphere, the great welcoming from the beautiful lady, the perfect service from the moustache elegant waiter and the funny "proper english" man.

Terrible experience. Having looked forward to a relaxing evening out I ordered the rump steak cooked as medium to well done. When it arrived , super quickly, which was a tell tale sign perhaps, it was bleeding all over the plate and almost raw inside. I politely sent it back. The waiter who was lovely apologised and said it would... More

Dear guest, I was deeply saddened to read about your experience in my restaurant. It certainly appears that everything we could do wrong we did - many apologies.... We have tried and trusted regime for steak grilling, which involves final temperature check. I ve investigated and the probes were fully operational but sadly, our grill chef didn't use them in...

I am a huge steak fan so I was looking forward to going here. Sadly the food was very average and the price did not justify it. Chicken Pate starter was shop bought and of a poor quality, I know some restaurants do buy pate in but I would expect it to be of a much higher quality than this.... More
