Popped in here after a conference, and to kill time before the train back to London. Was a lovely sunny evening, and we managed to get a table outside. Outside bar was manic tho with only one person serving so I went inside to get our bottle of rose and order a coffee. Waitress offered to bring it out but... More

I have visited this restaurant on many occassions particularly when entertaining business partners. The food is always outstanding - however last night the service left a lot to be desired. The main meal was served prior to everyone finishing their starters with one of my Indian colleagues having 2 meals at once. When we recived our desserts one of our... More

This review was going to start off as 5star as initially the food appeared great, and we had been highly recommended to go. The location was lovely, staff appeared very efficient...however by the end of the meal it was obvious there was a clear distinction between the attention paid to business customers v shoppers. Very shortsighted given people on days... More

Went on a Thursday night and the place was very busy, which is always a good sign. The group had mainly steaks which were all cooked to perfection. The service was pleasant and professional and overall the meal was extremely good. On,y down point is they had run out of spinach, but that's only a minor point?

Just returned from a visit to the Restaurant Bar And Grill. Went on a recommendation and have to say that although the staff were excellent as was the restaurant the steaks we had were poor to say the the least. My wife and I both ordered rare Rib Eye steak and for £21 each I would have expected perfection but... More

Busy even on a weekday evening, but attentive staff and perfectly cooked steak. Decent wine list, and a well presented Cheeseboard (well matured). Definitely worth a visit.

Some of the cocktails were really good, but others were less so, especially the Singapore Slings which tasted very 'different' from any that our group had elsewhere outside of Raffles. Personally, I prefer to savour my cocktails sitting down, but given the shortage and style of seating in the bar area, that was not possible.

Went here for a quick breakfast before heading back to the station on a Sunday morning. Food was overpriced and the coffee took them so long to make that by the time they were ready to serve it, the drinks were luke warm. If you're paying £6.50 for a bacon sandwich, I think it's right that you have high expectations.... More

visited here on a Thursday evening with my wife for her birthday and had the chateaubriand............... the food was amazing! One of the best steaks I've had! The onion rings were top drawer too! There was also a good atmosphere for a weekday night. We had to book a table and the restaurant was full the time we were there.... More
