It was my first visit to this restaurant and I will definitely be back again! The service was great, fast and efficient and the food was to die for! The portion sizes are generous and drinks reasonably priced. Although the tables are close together we were very comfortable and so into our steaks that we forgot. Keep it up guys,... More

The server was perfectly happy helping us find the most delicious giant slab of meat to get on half price. And they truly delivered. Tomohawk steak locally sourced, and sides and drinks galore. We got 2 £140 steaks and sides and everything was half freaking price. They brought water without 'that look' and were generally accommodating to my disabled partner.... More

If you are a steak lover, then this is the place for you. You can go menu items or order a piece of steak from the "butcher's block'. Great variety of different cuts. We had one steak not cooked to the correct temperature, it was sorted with no fuss and was returned with all fresh side dishes and a table... More

Given the current 50% offer given the recent refurbishment, we tried the new menu this past Sunday. The new decor inside the restaurant is lovely and the space feels more spacious. The quality of the food, especially the steaks remain high and are cooked to perfection. For several years this establishment, and its sister restaurant on New York Street has... More

A lovely restaurant. The staff were very helpful. The steak was delicious. The beer, cocktail and Whiskey were of a high quality. I would thoroughly recommend The Grill On The Alley.

Let me start by saying that I have eaten steak at many fine restaurants and the butchers block was the best steak I have ever had. Cut and weighed at my table and it certainly did not disappoint. The waitress was simply amazing, friendly, charming and attentive and every bit of food that came onto the table was first rate.... More

Ordered sashimi tuna fillet on 'oriental vegetables'. What came was tuna on a handful of cold raw spinach and a selection of cold raw grated white cabbage, carrot and red onion - it looked like it had fallen out of a kebab and scraped of the pavement The buttered spinach was that watery it needed a lifeboat whilst the Argentina...

The food, service and ambiance were all OK. I had the Argentinian ribeye and it was nice and the others in our party also enjoyed their meat dishes. What we all found disappointing were the prices. £4.50 for a side of carrots, £3.50 for bread, £4.25 for peas and beans etc. etc. The business model seems to be set up... More

As we were taking advantage of the 50% offer on Easter Sunday, we decided to go all out with three courses For starters we had the salmon tartare and mussels, both of which were lovely. A little disappointed though, as we were there as the doors opened and were expecting to get oysters as a starter, but were told there... More
