Great food and service as always :-)

Excellent welcoming and introduction of our waiter (Max). Staff were great with my requests such as colouring stuff for my son (first time had to ask), moving tables to a more comfortable booth once one became available and for a salad I like :-). Dinner took a while but that's expected anywhere... read more

How do you know the foods good? No ones talking while eating! This is exactly what we were like once our food arrived. Our waiter Conor L was awesome letting us know the specials and ensuring we enjoyed our meal. Highly recommend this dining experience.

Wanted a 'Big Meal', so chose Lonestar...Great Welcome...Max & Hannah had us feeling Welcome...Service was Fast & Efficient. Bar waitress was Lovely. Food was Perfect & Hot. We are 'fussy food ppl', & couldn't fault anything. Even the bathrooms were 'spotless'. Thanx team, a nice 'tight ship'...Thankyou for a lovely evening. Can't move right now! Lol

Was a very busy night when we ate dinner there, so there was quite a wait for a table, and clearly they needed more staff on the night. Once our meals arrived, wow, you do not go hungry when eating at Lone Star!

Had great dinner here again. It's not our first time here and as most often it was a good experience. It wasn't very busy what was very pleasant. We liked the boothseats a lot with a bit more privacy and a good level of music (the tables at the window can be a bit louder making it hard to keep... More

We had a good meal, but what stood out was the excellent service from Conner, our waiter. He gave us consistently great service. Nothing was a problem to him, and he was friendly and very abbliging. Top marks Connor.

Staff and meal were fantastic. Although the restaurant got very busy, the staff were very efficient. We really enjoyed our meal with a glass of wine.
