I went to Prime with my husband for an Anniversary lunch! We both started with tempura prawns, the prawns were overcooked and came in, what I would describe as, chip shop batter, not tempura batter which is much, much lighter, served with salad, bacon and fresh chilli, it was ok but felt the bacon didn't add anything to the dish!...

Tried the pub for the first time..friendly bar staff. Declined to accept my AMEX card and charged nearly £5 for a peroni pint each... I noticed people didn't stay long... Not one to return to.

Been here quite a few times now and we wouldn't go out for a steak anywhere else. Lovely little intimate restaurant upstairs with great service. The food is so good. We had the fish platter to share for a starter and it was perfect. Great amount of different fish and seafood and tasted all lovely and fresh. I had the... More

I suppose the issue here was from the write ups I was expecting a restaurant. There is one but at lunch it's closed so you eat downstairs in in almost deserted pub. Main was a reasonable and well trimmed rump steak on a hot volcanic stone so I was in charge of how well done I wanted it. Thecwuslity 2asnt... More

My partner and I visited Prime last night for an early birthday treat. We had a drink downstairs first, and the barman was very lovely and helpful. The restaurant is very small, but this was nice, and at first, we were the only people in there which was even better! We both had 3 courses, and it was the best... More

Great steak, lovely that you get to cook it yourself. Nice service. The only fault is that it is so tiny upstairs you can hear other peoples conversations a little too much, so not very intimate.

This hotel came highly recommended by some clients so the four of us visited on a Tuesday evening in February. After enjoying a pint in the bar we went upstairs to the restaurant and were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming waitress. After explaining the menu options and checking we had drinks we studied the menu and we were... More

Party of 10 friends recently enjoyed a meal here. The steak was best tasted in long while, service was excellent and we were thoroughly looked after. Will certainly come here again and have promised to bring the husband next time! Only downside was the stairs as one friend has mobility issues. Thank you for lovely evening.

I find it absolutely shocking when I read some of the below reviews, how you can rate this place any less than Very Good is beyond me. I have been to prime numerous times and have never been disappointed. The restaurant is small and quaint with a very special feel. The staff are ALWAYS attentive, friendly and genuine. Nothing is...
