We visited here with friends, one of whom is coeliac and also requires dairy free. We explained this and it wasn't a problem till we got to the puddings. Apart from sorbet there wasn't anything for him. However, the chef cooked a pudding from scratch just for our friend. This was a special touch that was much appreciated. The whole... More

Upstairs at the Grill has revitalised my relationship with Roasts. I'm not one for a Sunday roast in a restaurant - but as my partner is I've sat through hundreds of disappointing dinners with small portions, dry meat, bland veg and all the other easy pitfalls for a roast. The other day though, we had without doubt the best roast... More

From the minute we arrived the service was excellent. The staff were lovely, friendly and took us up to the bar to wait for our table to be ready. We were offered a presentation of the meat to help us make our choice. After a short while we were taken to our table (we had ordered our food in the... More

Had a fabulous meal here on Saturday night(you'll need to book in advance), great atmosphere, had a drink in the upstairs Manhattan style bar before a lovely meal in the small restaurant. Great service from all the staff, had a run down, and presentation of all the cuts of steak and how they differ, before choosing our meal. Lovely tiger... More

I went here with my family and we had an excellent time. We booked a table for 5 weeks in advance and we were all rather excited and we weren't disappointed. The service was fantastic. We were taking for pre drinks to an upstairs lounge area and to our surprise we were escorted to a private area in which we... More

We booked an evening here to entertain my guests. We had 2 toddlers and they were very kind in giving us the private room upstairs. I couldn't fault their service. They were attentive and made us feel very comfortable. Our guests commented they've never experienced such good service. The food is little on the expensive side but perfectly appropriate for...
