Good food and service

I had the 12oz Rib Eye which was quality meat and cooked to my liking. Accompanying chips and salad were also nice. To finish the Bailey's Profiteroles were also good. The prices were reasonable and service polite, although a tiny bit pedestrian for my liking. Overall, one of the better steak... read more

This is the only place to eat Steak in Derby. The Black pepper sauce is out of this world and if anyone ever tasted the sauce in the Shing Do in Derby this is very similar! A real find and they know Steak and how to cook it. Real Quality :-)

What can I say other than bloody delicious!! Makes my mouth water just thinking about it! Not the cheapest place to eat out but well worth the money! We go on special occasions like anniversary and birthdays and have never been disappointed. The owners Emily and Lee are lovely and nothing is too much trouble for them. Can't wait to... More

Well to be honest I didn't expect the UK to be the N°1 choice for Steak. (Especially if you have the possibility to have steak in the US from time to time). But what we got at Emily's was one of the best Steaks I ever got. Not too cheap, but definetely price worth. Try the T-Bone. We'll come back!

The service was great and we didn't have to wait too long for our drinks and food. Emily is very friendly and makes you feel at home. She made the effort to make sure we... More
