Came here a few times for lunch and I feel That it's very worth it for the 2-course lunch deal! I was very full by the end of lunch! However, the service was quite slow and I had to wait about 15-25mins to get the waitress's attention to ask for the bill. And another 10-15 mins to get the attention... More

Came with two of my bridesmaids and can easily say that since the grill house has changed hands to G1, it's just not the same as it used to be. Some of the favourites have been cut from the menu (probably to reduce the amount of things that they can get wrong). Our waitress (with short dark hair) was rude... More

We have eaten in the Glass House previously and thought we'd give the Grill House a shot. We weren't disappointed - this Mexican themed restaurant was a good dinner out. Margaritas to start, with loaded skins as a starter and various mains including the Ribs and one of their special burgers certainly hit the spot. A good selection of wines... More

Have now been back a couple of times since it changed hands and have been disappointed each time. Food and service not up to the same standard really wanted to keep using the restaurant as we used to visit a couple of times a month will not be back.

Good afternoon, I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed the Flourless Chocolate Cake - it's one of our favourites. Jack, the waiter who served you, hopes you have had the chance to bake some yourself and it came out well.

Good morning Valerie, It's disappointing to hear your recent visit to The Grill House didn't live up to your previous expectations. The staff, building and menus have changed very little since we were taken over by G1.

I have eaten at the Grill House once before and was a bit wary in case I was disappointed this time. Not a bit! The potato skins with pulled pork are so tasty and in fact I was tempted to have a second helping and skip the main course. Sense prevailed and I stuck with one helping to leave room... More
