Good food at a reasonable price

My boyfriend and I visited the restaurant on a busy Saturday evening as we were stating in the Radisson Hotel. We both chose the steak with peppercorn sauce- it was nicely cooked and a good size, but certainly not the best steak I've had during a meal. The side salad and fries were also great... read more

I liked the fact that you only had 2options as a main course and that you could have as much fries and salad as you could eat. The staff were fab, friendly and professional.

We were on our way to the theatre when we found the Steak and Lobster restaurant offering either steak or lobster for only £18. We went the following evening. The lobster was delicious and we were offered unlimited fries and salad. The only complaint (minor) was that after a messy hands on lobster, a finger bowl or similar would have... More

Steak and lobster what's not to like. Well this restaurant apparently. Two of the most enjoyable dishes were managed to be ruined by this restaurant. To start with the service was poor, drinks arrived before starters, we were not offered sauces on arrival of our food and neither did a member of staff check in with us during the meal... More

The rain poured as if with vengeance for Elijah. At times we thought we wouldn't make it; why hadn't we just booked a room in the Midland....just a stone's throw away!? We would have arrived cheerful, dry and most importantly dry. After several pit stops we arrived into the tasteful complex which housed our restaurant. unperturbed by our striking resemblance...

This is a good place to go for a reasonably priced meal in a well appointed 5 star hotel. The food and service was good. I had steak but will definitely try the lobster next time.

Looking for a restaurant at 9 pm on a sunday stumbled over the steak and lobster. They welcomed us in straight away service being excellent.
