Four of us had a meal in here on a Saturday night, we were in the lower section which was a bit chilly as there was no heating on. The bar area is very lively and noisy which is OK if that is what you are looking for but we really wanted to just have a quiet meal. The food... More

Went there last year, and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I think it is very like Browns Restaurant in Brighton. This time we had a beautiful meal, steaks and fish, cooked to perfection, initially thought about booking to go to 'Montparnasse'. However, decided on 69 Restaurant (Elliotts) as tables larger for two people and very comfortable seating and discrete. The... More

Glad to see this place has turned the corner, amazing what new chefs can do. Had lunch Moules, 1 kilo pot to share and fries with a bottle of wine, £22 nice crusty bread excellent value, and maybe the best Moules we have had, thorough enjoyed by my wife and myself.

Dinner with a friend on a Saturday night resulted in our booking here at last minute. Superb food. We both had fillet steak which was outstanding quality and beautifully cooked. The chocolate fondant after was extremely amazing too. Loved the food and the girls serving were really friendly too. The only down side is that this restaurant is also a... More

We came in for after dinner drinks on Saturday night. The place was buzzing with people our own age ( 30+ to 50's) really nice mot to be surrounded by drunk kids. Music was really good too. We found a quieter corner downstairs to talk and stayed until 12:30am. Will brings friends back soon and try the menu.

I have been here several times and I have to say the food and atmosphere have always been fantastic, especially when there is a live jazz band playing on Sunday afternoons. I recently came here for my works Christmas meal and the sea bass was outstanding, so light and tasty. The smoked duck started was also delicious. I highly recommend... More

I went here with a large party and our babies. They were accommodating and friendly, it was just the food that let them down. I had a steak which was fine and my husband had salmon, which really was poor and an absolutely tiny portion in comparison to the other meals. Would not return.
