On New Years Eve our family arrived on masse for a meal at this steakhouse/cafe/bar, for an early New Years Eve celebration. The food and service provided by the hard working staff was excellent and all this was backed up by reasonably priced beverages from the bar. It is always advisable to book in advance to avoid disappointment!!

The front half of Dylan's has a bland pub-like appearance and while this may be liked my many I prefer the back-half. The back half can be entered from their small car park at the rear of the restaurant - very useful since there is very little parking space nearby. The back-half mentioned is more "nice pub" looking, comfortable and... More

I have taken many of my clients to Dylan's at various times of the day and night and I can honestly say that myself or any of my clients have never had a bad meal or bad experience. Being in a family business myself I can understand how difficult it must be for costs with massive vat and tax bills.... More

Whilst recommending a good friend of a lovely place to eat, I decided to show them reviews and address on trip advisor as I knew they would not disappoint and I was proven correct. I have been going to Dylan's for a number of years and have never once been disappointed. The atmosphere is always very pleasant and warming and... More

This place used to be really good when it first opened, great service and good value food, we've noticed a decline in standards over the past couple of years. Took mum for lunch today, the lady behind the bar taking the order was disinterested and surly, I could see she just didn't want to be there, was very rude when... More
