Our second visit to the restaurant and about the same time as last year for our anniversary. Friday booking for 6.30pm and when walking in you are hit with the noise and was a little confused as to who was a hostess or Joe public as the hostesses wore their own clothes. We were taken to a table in the... More

Grill on the Alley is an upmarket restaurant/steakhouse that feels luxurious from the moment you step inside. I’d highly recommend for a special occasion or a treat once in a while, but due to prices, not a place to visit too frequently. I’d been wanting to try it out for a number of years but it’s not really suitable for... More

This restaurant became a firm favourite of mine from the first time I stepped inside. The décor and warm greeting from staff makes you feel welcome and the dining set up means you are not cramped or shoved into spaces close to other groups of diners. The menu is great; plenty of choice but everything is done well. The special... More

Went here for my birthday with my family. Parents were paying...thank god. The cocktails were delicious, and really fresh. The waiter was more than happy to talk us through the wine list, which meant that we loved what we chose. And then the food.... honestly incredible. The beef is obviously what this place is all about, and you can understand... More

Ate here upon a recommendation, food was excellent! I ordered a Chateaubriand which was cooked to perfection and had some great sides to accompany it. Staff were very attentive, so all in all the perfect evening. We will definitely be returning!

Visited once again and another lovely meal. This time I chose to have a burger with extra Gruyere and bacon and my boyfriend had the wagyu burger with onions mushrooms and Gruyere. Both lovely just as all the previous meals have been. Will be back soon for lobster!
