Tried to get a meal here around 8pm on Wednesday 10th April. There was a young lad outside watching us study the menu while he smoked. We went in and stood at the bar waiting for a staff member to show up but the place was completely empty. After three long minutes of standing and waiting at the bar we decided to give up and go somewhere else, then finally the kid from outside came in and trudged behind the bar, no greeting or apology. Turns out he was running the place, yet still made us wait until he finished his on-duty cigarette before coming back in. Unbelievable, I've never seen that in my life. And a shame as we would have dropped about £80 in your restaurant. Sack this rude, lazy dimwit and maybe you'll get a few customers in. Not us though, we live down the street but we won't be back.

My partner and I had a very pleasant well presented and tasty meal at this small gastro pub on Newington Road. Meal was prepared to order so definitely not fast food.The waitress barkeeper was very pleasant. Will certainly return

My boyfriend had a coupon deal so brought me here for a birthday dinner. We brought the whole family, two kids (14-11) and 3 adults. Very good burgers and amazing hotdogs! There was a slight problem with the deserts but the manageress took care of that immediately, which was really appreciated! Would certainly come back.

We went to the Steamie using a Groupon voucher. It was quiet due to it being a week night. The only member of staff was the amiable bar man who did a sterling job serving both the bar and tables.
Being Grecophiles we were keen to sample the Greek dishes on the menu. The starters were excellent meatball, domades and sausage. The main was a shared Mediterranean meat dish which was alright but spoilt by being served with greasy chips. The desert was awful! They had run out of Greek Yoghurt and the Cheesecake was not home made.
Maybe we were just unfortunate with our choices but we were left disappointed with the dining experience.
