Excellent. I am a Californian living in the UK for the past several years. One of my most annoying traits is to compare things here in England with similar things in the San Francisco Bay Area. One of the topics dear to my heart is beef and I've made far more enmity than friends with my comments on... read more

We went for our anniversary celebration as we wished to feel special and we were not disappointed. From arriving to leaving, the staff were attentive and very polite. You cannot get the food they serve in an ordinary restaurant. We chose the Chateaubriand for two and were very pleased with our choice. This does not come cheap nor would you... More

What can I say about this restaurant except AMAZING. The staff are fantastic and the steaks are beyond good. The cocktail menu and the wine list are so extensive that the staff sit down and explain it to you! Wonderful. Highly recommend.

Upstairs at the Grill is a delightful restaurant that is an ideal place to visit for Sunday lunch. The Beef rib and trimmings has a superb flavour, and the generous portion ensures you have a hearty meal. They also serve some delightful cocktails. The staff were outstanding and when my wife had a small issue with her duck they handled... More
