We celebrated our sons christening in The Suite at 8 South...couldn't be more delighted with how things went...the food was delicious and went down a storm with all guests, whilst the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The suite was an excellent function room and easily accommodated our party of 50 guests...would highly recommend! Thanks to Trevor and the team!

High chair got for us, kids menu better than most places and our granddaughter enjoyed the lasagne (even if she did get half of it over her vest!). Loin of bacon with peppercorn sauce was unusual...

Over the years our family have been going to Eight South for lunch or dinner. The food has always been first class and we love the relaxed atmosphere. It could be a little more child friendly with crayons and pictures to colour. At one stage the underneath area was opened and families with young kids were ushered downstairs - no... More

We had no reservation but were promptly shown to our seats. Two of our party are on a Slimming World healthy eating plan and the restaurant were very happy to amend the menu to accommodate our preferences. They swapped baby boiled potatoes for chips and served sauces on the side. They provided a large side salad rather than garlic bread... More

Had a meal with family last week-end and I am still thinking about the steak! Definitely the best fillet steak I have had in a while, it was cooked to perfection well seasoned and melted in my mouth. Wife had Mc Cartneys pork and leek sausages with creamy mash and string onions with onion gravy she really enjoyed it. Couple... More

My wife and I decided to go out for the evening and chose Eight South as our venue. When we arrived we fancied a few drinks before our meal so we went into the Snug Bar. We were quite disappointed as it just seemed to be for local loud and foul mouthed football fans. There is room for a lot... More

I was out for an evening in Eight South recently with 5 other friends for a long overdue catch up and we couldn't have chose a better venue. On arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant waitress who asked if we would like to be seated by the open fire. Once given the menus we knew we would have... More
