3 courses for £15 as it's a Wednesday had a steak so £4 supplement, everything really nice, well worth a mid week meal as you pay £22 just for the steak on its own on the weekends. Have the olives and bread assume starters are small. Photo of the Eton mess

We visited on Tuesday night to celebrate my partners birthday. We had gone to the bar before but never the restaurant. What a great find. Our server was fantastic (sorry I didn't get her name). They helped with a surprise cake, balloon etc which made the evening extra special. The food was fantastic. The black pudding scotch egg was a... More

Decided upon this restaurant for our evening meal on a Tuesday night with my dad and we hadn't booked a table. We were welcomed to the restaurant and informed by the waiter that although they could comfortably accommodate us they had just received a number of very large parties at the same time and so our starters may take around...

I took the mother in law to eat dinner here on Sunday evening and i wasn't disappointed. To be honest the meals are expensive but they are worth it. When you see steak for £23, i took a sharp intake of breath, thinking this better be worth it. When this plates arrived i realised that the 10oz steak was cooked... More

My husband and I went in to this restaurant, without a reservation on a busy Saturday evening. The staff were very helpful and accommodated us very well. The food was really good as was the service.

Half price cocktails between 5 to 7pm and a top notch meal afterwards. What is there not to like? Great service at the bar and in the restaurant. Thank you 1812 team we had a very enjoyable evening. We are already looking forward to our next visit very soon. 👏🍸🍴😊

I have to say we had am amazing evening here last night, our first visit but most definitely not our last. The food was gorgeous, the cocktails lovely and the service was something you should be very proud of. On arrival the bar had a lovely and lively atmosphere, subdued lighting and looked great. We sat outside enjoying the evening... More
