Excellent self cooking slates

Visited a couple of times and I must say that the idea of cooking your own meat on a Volcanic slate is pure genius. Really nice meal both times. Only slight downside is the young and sometimes un attentive staff.

Visited for a family members birthday and prebooked the table the previous week as we had small children with us and wanted to avoid the wait, the incompetent staff looked flustered and could not seem to cope with the busy period, not only were we waiting half an hour after the table was booked for they then gave the table...

Not good at all the chicken looked insipid, it had never seen a griddle....forgot to bring a plate for me to eat the skewer with other items (rice, salad) so by the time the plate arrived the chicken was luke warm, did not enjoy the 'claggy' rice, will not be visiting again although we...

We picked this place based on their menu plus the reasonably good reviews and drove a decent while to meet friends here First impression: the place is lovely. Really is. Contemporary design nice atmosphere. We booked our table for 12,30 the place by this point was fairly empty but filled up quickly. As this was our first visit would've been... More

Our latest visit left us underwhelmed. Unwiped table, with used napkins could be forgiven on a busy bank holiday, as could slow service, however it was only wiped at our request, even though it was obviously not clean as our cutlery was left. Although the food was ok, it was served warm rather than hot. Not for the first time... More

We called in when we were passing through after hearing good things about this place. Good size portions, good vegetarian options and great value for money. We will return whenever we are out that way.

recommended by my daughter I decided to have a birthday meal. The sharing starter was plentiful but almost cold when it arrived which was disappointing. The main was a sharing platter with three exotic steaks and three standard steaks served on a rock to cook to your taste. This was very nice but the portion size for sharing was minimal... More

Went this Sunday for lunch, the menue looked very tempting but theirs were it stopped. The starter of prawn cocktail was very small with two small triangles of shop bought bread. We then waited nearly 3/4 of an hour for what is probably the worst Sunday roast I can recall in a very long time. We wil not be returning.
