Birthday Dinner - Fab meal!

My husband & I went here for dinner for my birthday. It's called Protocol now! Quite busy, which made it quite noisy going in with the volume of everyone's voices. But we were seated at a table very quickly and our waitress was really, really lovely! We didn't have to wait long for our food... read more

And because we deserved a night out, we decided that eating out was ticking most boxes. June, cold, steak would be good, let's find somehere close to home and enjoy their cooking. Haven't eaten at Elevate, and I won't now, as it's changed it's name to Protocol.That hardly matters,neither name stands out. Easy to park, easy to walk in, easy... More

Nice food and friendly staff. Dessert was a bit slow coming out but we had a nice time. Decor a bit boring and was cold sitting by windows.

We went to protocol with an open mind after many wonderful meals with friends and family over many years at Elevates We found the waitress lovely but with not a lot of knowledge about the menu. The meals were small and expensive. . We found there was not a lot of variety. Two of the meals we ordered were fish... More

Now branded as Protocol, this is a local establishment to our home. We went with friends to try the new menu. The food was faultless. Three cheers for the chef. Drinks range is pretty good too. On this occasion, the wait staff were disorganised and very slow. It was quicker to get drinks from the bar than wait for table... More

A re-branding & new ownership sees this place no called Protocol. Had initially wanted to come for Elevates South Devon Steak so we're disappointed when we found new owners, new menu & no South Devon, although we were not disappointed with our service or our food! Young waitress did a good job waitressing, as she should, remembering our orders &... More

Now called Protocol. New owners and not a good start. The staff are very young and too cool for school. I ordered a latte and got a under extracted flat white. We ordered a pizza and then noticed the chef spying on us and then at the bar chatting with another female customer. Pizza took 30 minutes and was warm... More

Elevate offers diners the choice of either a private room or open dining and sitting areas: the menu is quite extensive, pub grub with a flair, light snacks, entrees and mains including steak, New Zealand lamb and venison (of course), seafood and poultry: Family and friends live in the area and we usually enjoy at least one meal there when...
