Prior to the meal the head waiter Danny relished serving this bevvy of beauties and proceeded to wine test on us - truly divine... More

Booked very late but my wife and I were slotted in for 6.30pm. Even at the booking stage the professional and considerate approach of the staff was clear including assurances that we would not be hurried. We were shown to the very impressive, comfortable upstairs bar on arrival and from drinks order (excellent range of great g and t's!) to... More

This restaurant is a 'must visit' for my husband and me whenever we have a special occasion to celebrate. The whole experience, the food, the staff and particularly the cocktail menu are always first rate. Whilst on the pricey side, which puts it in the 'special occasion only' category for us, it always feels like good value and money well... More

Every aspect of this place was perfection. A perfect steak with beautiful side dishes and even an exquisite lager in a chilled glass to wet the appetite. We went on recommendation and we now know what all the fuss is about. Beautiful.

Yes it was a bit pricey, but worth every penny. Excellent service, attentive team with cheerful happy attitudes, very knowledgeable about all their menu items. The food was out of this world. could not find fault with anything we ordered. The atmosphere was amazing, you were treated as a special guest. 10/10 for this one!

First visit to Upstairs at the Grill - very attentive service. In the bar upstairs we were given complementary glasses of "luke" warm water served in beautiful cut glass jugs. Downstairs to eat & the tap water served this time in bottles was a lot cooler! The tables are far too close together & not only could we hear our... More
