Myself and my family went to this restaurant thinking that we were going to get great steak, seeing that the name of the restaurant is "STEAK and Ale" but we were very wrong. The waiters were slow to take our orders, then after our order had been taken, it took another 10 minutes for the waiter to tell us that... More

I travel extensively and the 300 gram fillet was without doubt THE BEST STEAK I HAVE EVER HAD! I am definitely going back for another

Have had drinks here many times but this was the first time a meal - all 6 of us had steak which seemed a sensible idea?!? - four had fillet & the other two had rump - all cuts were very good & the difference from medium rare to medium well was clearly evident - the chefs know their steak... More

For a down-to-earth steakhouse with good steak and quality beers, this is good value for money place to go... the staff are great and very educational.. did you know that the going rate for a Zulu wife is 11 cows?

Steak and Ale is my local restaurant. They do the loveliest, tenderest melt-in-your-mouth steaks, but why oh why can't they get their service right? And their cocktails? Seriously- every time I have been its a minimum 20 mins to get drinks, and another 20 to get food.... And sometimes they can't get that right! Last week my friends steak had... More

After waiting 45 minutes for our steak (we could... More

Steaks are good ( as they should be) but not outstanding. Expensive for the area. Service good when you can get the right waiter.

My wife and I both had steak but differently prepared. I loved both. The outside seating is on a very busy stretch of restuarants and it had a nice feel on this Friday evening. During the evening we had three different waiters.
