“pure indulgence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

THe atmosphere, the service and the food and wine - the only down side was the dozen gas heaters... a bit of overkill :)

“Great steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

A cozy atmosphere in a beautifully decorated house. The meat was perfectly presented cooked exactly as ordered and the mashed potato was outstanding. Good wine selection and decent desserts. The service was very good and the place was not crowded. A great lunchtime venue for a special occasion. Prices a tad expensive but certainly worth the visit.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Very expensive food and wines and our steaks were tough.
The restaurant has a very good ambience and a lovely outside sitting area but this did not compensate for the indifferent food.

“Quality steaks, great ambience. Pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I enjoyed the quality steaks at Wombles. The ambience was very good and the service very good. Excellent wine selection to compliment your meal. A little on the pricey side, but worth it for special occasions. parking a bit of an issue.
