Good value

Well presented and good food. A bit pricey but worth it. It was a quiet night when we were in - atmosphere will improve when fuller. Traffic noise quite intrusive.

We visited Deans for my wife's birthday on Saturday. I booked for 8:00 and arrived at 7:55, We had to wait 20 mins to get a drink in the very comfortable bar area (some nibbles might have been nice and kept us busy). We ordered our food after the initial disappointment of being given an out of date menu from... More

Thank you for taking time to review our restaurant. I am really glad you enjoyed the food and the ambiance but sorry that you felt the service was not up to the mark. You were indeed correct.

Located on the edge of the city centre it's really worth booking for dinner on a Friday/Saturday. Now just stayed serving meals Sunday lunch too. Went out with my mum for dinner, hadn't been here for a long time so was surprised when we walked in as it's been redecorated and the entrance and bar area is really been brought... More

Superb flavour and presentation. Good choice of dishes and excellent value in the pre-theatre menu. The surprise was the finesse demonstrated in the preparation of the dishes.

Absolutely fantastic. We were lost for words. Our expectations were high from the start but Chef Deans surpassed himself. Our starters, mains and desserts were excellent. The front of house staff were friendly and enthusiastic. Well worth a return visit.

I love Deans. The food, the service and the decor are all beautiful. The cocktail menu is small but really pleasant and the food menu is also short but each and every dish has something to offer. Staff attentive but not overbearing.

Having randomly selected this restaurant on the internet the night before when we fancied booking a lunch treat, we were more than pleasantly surprised that our son's selection was absolutely spot on. For some reason we didn't think to check Trip Advisor as we would normally do before travelling (46 miles) to Perth, the menu had sold it to us...thankfully... More

I went to this fine establishment for my mum's birthday, her choice, not mine ;-) Anyways, when we walked into the restaurant we were seated at the sitting area and were given menus and asked if we wanted a drink.

Had yet another meal here and we were pleasantly surprised to find that the restaurant has had a re- vamp! The decor was very tastefully done and the restaurant still has the same ambience as it had before. Now to the food - what can I say, the food was absolutely wonderful Willie and his team nailed it (yet again)!... More
