We came here as a treat for our engagement and we loved it! We got a lobster and a steak and both were exceptional, I´ve had lobster before and paid way more but this was bigger and juicier, the steak was cooked to perfection too! Loved the all you can eat chips and salad. Desserts were lovely also-even personalised for... More

Luckily we both really enjoyed it the lobster was so tasty and the dressed salad and unlimited fries are a nice touch. The only thing we wished was the lobster was a little bigger you really dont get much meat... More

Booked a table for 8pm arrived on time but took 45+ minutes before we got our starters. Service generally slow and lacked customer interaction, no atmosphere in the restaurant. As there is only two options on the menu I would expect a better service. Food generally ok but nothing special, dessert menu very limited. Waiter who served us completely uninterested... More

Firstly the food was lovely and the staff friendly and attentive but I found it really strange to have this concept of restaurant in a hotel. Maybe it's a marriage of convenience or they have the same parent company but a reasonably priced, basic premise restaurant where the waiters wear suits & the atmosphere is so formal just jars. Again... More

The lobster was very nice but there was hardly any meat. I feel as if the lobster sizes have gotten smaller and the next size up costs £45 which is quite steep. In the future I will order the steak instead.

Let me reassure you that our lobster's have not got smaller at the cost of £18 however the may be slight variations in individual lobster meat within the shell. With us also offering a 2lb lobster that will have considerable more meat in we do... More

Another great meal at Steak & Lobster. Great service and delicious food! It was very busy but our waitress (I think she was called Samantha) was very caring and chatty.
