I've just got home after being taken for a surprise Sunday lunch to cheer me up after having an operation recently. Where do I start...we were given an over enthusiastic welcome by a young lady, so over enthusiastic that I thought she knew me and I hadn't recognised her, but no I didn't know her. Just extremely over the top.... More

Our first visit after the refurbishment. Our reservation was put back 30 minutes because they were fully booked but when we got there the place was empty! The staff are attentive but totally harassed. The menu appears to be the same as before. My starter (prawns in salt and pepper) was extremely dry, the other starters acceptable. The steak ordered...

On arrival the place was deserted with only 3 tables seated and a queue of 5 people waiting to be seated. No staff visible for... More

A nice modern pub/restaurant with well presented and tasty food. The waiter was friendly and helpful and made the evening very enjoyable.

3rd night on trot waited an age for food that promised so much and delivered so little. The waiting staff are polite and give their best shot. They are however let down by being unorganised and obviously poorly managed. Get your finger out you have a lovely place in an obviously affluent area.

I have been a loyal customer to this venue for over 40 years through all its various guises since being a Dutton Restaurant upstairs in the 70s. Sadly, they have got it so wrong, so often on my recent visits, I've lost patience. Being a graduate of the Berni Inn school, I know my steaks and grills. Despite a recent... More

My partner and myself went to the Beefeater for lunch yesterday (NY Day). We visit this restaurant from time to time and have usually enjoyed it. However, on this occasion I have to say we were a little disappointed. The place was almost empty and yet they were only letting people dine who had pre booked, which we fortunately had... More
