We all enjoyed our food! The burger was amazing! Highly recommended by everyone in our group. The cocktail and desert menus are worth a look.

The restaurant is very nice but quite noisy and frantic, not cosy or intimate at all. The steaks were good but not the best. The rest of the food is good for the most part but certainly not worth the prices charged.

We intended to go to a different restaurant but as we had no booking and came across Deanes we decided to give it a go. We had a very good meal with good quality, tasty food that was well served, all a very recommendable visit.

The food here is really good and the service for us, in the upstairs private dining room, was excellent. I cannot comment on the restaurant downstairs.

Simple menu but a good steak. Friendly and helpful staff. Had fun with friends. Will come again if opportunity presents. Would recommend if you like steaks.

Definitely ‘smart casual’. I didn’t wear a jacket ! That said, some parties were ‘dressed up’... Go with what you feel comfortable in.

If I have had outstanding service, something above and beyond the level I would expect, then I leave a tip and that would be dependent on who it was - in other words for an individual £5 or £10. Most restaurants add a built... More
