We have been going to relentless since it first opened all those years ago, and it was always fantastic. The staff were great and so was the owner with the staff. Like I said been going for a good few years, we could tell there was a dramatic change in management when we went there prior to this visit, and... More

Ate here Saturday 16th august. Overall the food was good, however it did take a while to arrive as they were 'having trouble with their pizza oven'. Staff were very apologetic and this was fine, could not be helped. Only negative was that the wine was Luke warm and had to ask for ice in the wine cooler. Would visit... More

I recently reviewed the sister restaurant j's and had exactly the same issues a lovely menu but a large part of it "off". We had a Groupon voucher stating starters of squid, prawns and chicken wings. My husband does not like seafood so we thought the chicken would be fine. When we told the very pleasant waitress that we had... More

We visited here with our parents and the service was appauling, the food took 50 minutes to arrive and when we complained the owner became abusive. We said we were disatisfied with the length of time waiting and the table was far to close to an area where they were throwing dirty cutlery into bucket every couple of minutes. The... More

One more chance I've never reviewed Relentless before and now it's called Larry's. It's all pretty much the same inside though and the food is still good but any similarity stops there. I visited with my son and a friend last week and the service was awful. Fair enough there was a table of 12 sitting behind us, but it... More

We recently went in a group of 12 for my brothers birthday. All started of fine till it came to the main meals. The burgers were not as described they were cheap frozen burgers not the 7oz burgers advertised. When the waitress queried we was assured they were "fine". Steak half was all fat so couldn't even be eaten. Even... More
