Terrible! Upon arriving staff were awkward and the hostess made us feel a little uneasy. We went for a romantic dinner based on reviews we had read. It was nothing like we expected. We were sat in the corner where the table was wobbley and there was a plant overwhelming our table which was irritating. We ordered drinks and a... More

I decided I wanted a good steak for my birthday and went to Emily's with my husband and 2 friends. The greeting and service were fantastic, but the food was dreadful. For my starter I had the Stilton mushrooms and they were so watery I could hardly taste the cheese. My husbands chicken was burnt. For my main course I... More

Delicious food! The owner recommend a great rib eye steak and their bread&butter pudding, they didn't disappoint. Would love to go again!

We had very high hopes for this place. The reality was over and under cooked steaks, overcooked and dry burgers and way too much salad! Very expensive

We were looking for new but local experience for an impromptu date night and came across Emily's. great quality food and massive portions. However the ambience could be better, it was really quiet so you worried that you would interrupt others by talking. Also the drinks tasted funny but that was a minor. I would recommend a visit for great... More

Wonderful food, shame about the surroundings. The steaks were fantastic and cooked to perfection but have to say the restaurant is lacking in atmosphere. It's a shame because the Chef obviously deserves beter.

This is our third visit to Emily's and once again delivered a stunning plate of seafood. We had king prawn and lobster thermidor, plus Tom Yum sea bass which we requested the day before. The food when produced for us was visually appetising but more importantly was beautifully flavoured and mouth wateringly scrumptious. Definitely recommend
