Lush steak, lovely atmosphere

Another lovely evening at The Wine Cellar. We sampled the steak night again and had a chilled eat. Great to be able to chill at the bar and drink too. Lovely to see Chloe 'chips, cheese and gravy' and Hannah providing a great lovely cheerful service. Can't wait to come back, must book next time.

We went to the Valentine's Day meal and could not have asked for better. The staff were pleasant and attentive and made sure we were content with drinks and food. It had a cosy atmosphere. The food was cooked to perfection with a wide range of choices. Would definitely go back again for the steak/curry nights or to sample their... More

Staff are absolutely brilliant here, they cannot do enough for you. Every time we have been we are treated with excellent customer service. Food is lovely too. Would recommend the asian pork belly. Great wine selection. Restaurant is beautiful and is underground but with a gorgeous candle light glow. Must visit here. Would 100% recommend booking as it's quite small... More

We cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. In a City with so much choice this is easily ranked at the top for quality of food and service. Every time we attend we are treated with excellent customer service by the smiling staff who can not do enough. The Chef needs a mention in his own right. Amazingly presented food that... More

Compliments to the chef seems a bit of a glib comment, but it is so true - what we had to eat could have been classed elsewhere as ordinary food, but it was raised to excellent by the way it was cooked and presented. A word about the black pudding both on my mixed grill and my wife's starter of... More

This was a lovely discovery which was for a get together for a friend's birthday. It had been heartily recommended and lived up to expectations. A great selection of wines, a lovely environment and it was very busy, always a good sign. The staff were very friendly and I look forward to going back.

There is a great atmosphere down here if you catch it at the right time. It can get a little busy and claustrophobic although it's a great place to spend a couple of hours with a good bottle of wine .
