A group of 12 ladies visited for lunch on Sat 6th Dec. The food which was pre-ordered was very good and they catered well for a gluten intolerant guest. All the staff were very attentive and it was good value for money. The only downside was that the room was very cold even though they were expecting us.

Good food, good staff, well run. The steak is excellent. I had a special event here and the staff were very good, sorting out food for a gluten intolerant guest.

We were seated in the bar area and given time to choose our meal from the menu over a drink. Once we'd given our order we were taken upstairs and seated at our table. The service was good, without being over the top and intrusive. The food was excellent, the steak in particular was done to perfection and was accompanied... More

I don't like the bar downstairs so I was a little bit apprehensive about booking a meal at Dempsey's. However, our guests for the weekend had chosen the Dempsey's menu in preference to the others we had shown them. The meal surpassed my expectations by a long way.

Lovely atmosphere and bar area; gets very busy at the weekend. Only outdoor area is for smokers where they have a couple of small tables and chairs. The food was good but a bit of a strange menu. Wouldn't suit everyone. The menu must have changed recently as it used to be a better choice.

Heard reports that this is good place for eating.Met friend for lunch but won't go back.Firstly there were only 2 other people in (1pm) so no atmosphere.We had soup and a sandwich.The soup was alright but the sandwich poor.The bread was dry and filling sparse. My cup of tea was warm.A disappointing meal all round .

Bar the gobby larger party of mature diners , we had a lovely night here . The chef rustled up something for my veggie daughter when she didn't fancy menu choices and as a group , we had some lovely food . Great service from the lady manager and young waitresses .
