This was a meal for a birthday celebration - staff very friendly & enthusiastic. Food was lovely and plentiful - steaks were very good. Although noisy (especially during the happy birthday yeh-hahs) but all good fun - it made us smile each time! Recommended for families esp those with budding Cowboys and Cowgirls

Okay the food is a little pricey & not anything special but the four star rating is down to the service. The waiting staff are so friendly, helpful & enthusiastic. It's true that good waiting staff can make a very mediocre restaurant into a good one!

We booked a table for our son's 18th.. for 17 people.. All the meals came out together, hot and good quality.. I even struggled with my meal because of the huge portion... thats usually unheard of. Drinks were flowing well, staff very helpful and the final food bill £309 which included a service charge.. which we didn't mind paying..

We arrived about half an hour before our table was booked but decided to head in to see if we could get a table early and we were pleased to be seated quickly by the friendly staff. We did have a few concerns about the parking but after being reassured by the staff that we had parked in the right... More

Good location with parking. Excellent. Our grandson loves it. Food a bit ' fried" for me and huge portions but yesterday found salmon and crushed potatoes on menu and it was delicious. Staff incredibly friendly and lovely with kids. Bit pricey but not a bad experience. Wouldn't come on our own but kids like it so will probably return. Thought... More

S&W is a family favourite, we go there for every birthday celebration, and this time for Fathers Day. This visit was the first time we had a problem, the food wasn't cold, BUT, it wasn't hot and when you are paying the relatively expensive price charged in a S&W you expect a little better. This being said when the problem... More

Can only complement the food it was great - BUT the drinks service was very slow - almost finished the meal before the second lot arrived. It would have got 5 star rating if they had been quicker.

Been here a couple of times ( for work related evenings out where you need to find something for everyone.) I enjoy great quality food and don't mind paying for it. I DO mind paying nearly £18 for a rack of ribs that I can get in the local supermarket for a fiver. In fairness, the food was hot and... More

We were passing through and stopped after it looked like a fun place. And we were right! If you don't like country music and cowboys then it's not the place for you but we had a fantastic time. The staff are all dressed up and in character, food is good (maybe a shade expensive but you get a lot of... More
