My husband and I had been to Relentless several times before but these were probably the best steaks we had ever had. This restaurant is the first place that I've ever had a steak cooked as I like it, every time - BLUE! This ribeye steak was undoubtedly the best I've ever had; big, thick, juicy, melt in the mouth,... More

I visited this restaurant with my partner on their two for one night.Stek for main and prawns to start for less than £30 for two excluding drinks. I was expecting some catch but the steaks were huge, well cooked and extremely tasty.My partner does not like seafood so choose another starter at an extra cost but that was to be... More

Before going here, we heard good things from others and we're quite looking forward to our meal. However, it turned out to be pretty poor. First of all, we were kept waiting for quite a while to be seated even though there was only one couple there which was a little annoying but nothing major. Whilst waiting we saw, because... More

Having tried several times to get into this restaurant, finally managed to book for 6 pm on a Saturday night. Firstly, the website was awful, with a contact us form that replied from a random address, but anyway, onto the evening itself. Arrived early for a quiet drink, only to be told that there would be no front of house... More

My partner and I visited Relentless in April this year and I have to say I had the best steak ever. I ordered the fillet and was served with two pieces of steak cooked perfectly to my request of medium rare. We have booked a table next month and expect the same standard of service and food. I have read... More

Really disappointed at my first visit to Relentless tonight. Although the food was good and my partner loved his lobster it was so rushed I had only drank 1/4 bottle of wine I had ordered and I had finished my starter and main. I had literally finished my last mouthful of starters and our mains were already on the pass... More

Have just returned from the restaurant - we were a little sceptical after seeing some reviews but the food was first class! However literally within seconds of our starters being cleared our mains were delivered! The restaurant wasn't busy but maybe the all had somewhere else to go? It was so fast that the bottle of wine my gf ordered... More

I have given this place 3 chances. During the first two visits, the food was agonisingly slow to arrive, but the food was okay. Tonight however, on our visit as part of a birthday celebration the food was crap. A steak restaurant that sells low grade meat, can't cook it to specification and doesn't listen to its customers complaints. Two... More

This place is going down hill. We ordered a few steaks, and considering its a steak and lobster restaurant surely they couldnt get that wrong. They did. Firstly the sirloin cut was 30% fat and they cooked medium request steaks red raw. On speaking the the waitress, she said they had already had complaints about the meat tonight... yet they... More
