Really really good steak .

This is my second visit this year and the quality of both food and service is excellent. I would advise to prebook as even on this Tuesday evening the meat locker side was at capacity. This highlight here are the steaks .. they are simply superb. Served how you like, what you order is how it will... read more

It's my second outing and the chef burnt the steak half of my surf and turf. The grill was obviously too hot, as the meet was nice and rare behind the charcoal epidermis. But the lobster was beyond amazing. I think I might try the fish restaurant next time thinking about. Anyway service friendly and attentive, if chef had just... More

We visited here for dinner before a concert. Restaurant is nicely laid out but extremely noisy when busy which made it difficult to hear the waitress and also speak among our group. The service seemed a bit all over the place initially with a waitress trying to take an order without us seeing a menu but eventually we got there.... More

Tried the Eipic part of Deanes with friends for first time. Excellent tasting menu. We all skipped one course and still felt full. Food prices reasonable considering the high quality but wine is pricey. Will definitely go again

Dined here last night with a party of six. 1st time at the meat locker having been a little underwhelmed by Deane's at Queens in the past. Understandably the menu has to cater for a range of tastes but my advice is to treat this as a classic steak house in the vein of Hawksmoor or the Grillshack in London.... More

Went to try £10 lunch. Won't go again. One of us had to return braised beef a lot of mushrooms difficulty in finding beef. Toulouse Sausage salad was also a let down Waiter advised champ to go with it. Cost of small portion was £4 We also had 10% service charge added. So disappointing
