Had a lovely meal here with 2 friends on a Saturday night - we all had steak and it was gorgeous. Really nice atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Have been many times and will definitely return soon!

Visited mid week early evening. Restaurant was only just starting to fill up. Service was fast and friendly. Meals were hot, tasty, well presented and plentiful and good value. Will certainly visit again.

Four of us visited on a Friday evening. On this occasion we did not book. On a weekend you are booked into the restaurant area upstairs which is a nice setting - especially a table next to the window which we had. We all had an excellent starter and our mains varied from fish, steak to chicken - all were... More

Had prawns to start, and steak for main and peanut butter cheesecake for dessert. All delicious, one of the nicest steaks I've ever eaten. Not a massive menu which I always like because you know it won't be going in the microwave. Red wine was very good too. We ate upstairs. Staff were attentive and pleasant - will be returning.

Was recommended this by a business colleague. For me it was very average I was dining alone but felt there was no atmosphere. Not sure I would return.

The team at Dempsey's worked their magic again this weekend. Two of us went for a Saturday evening meal and we're both pleased with the consistent warm welcome and professional manner from the staff from the moment we entered the building. We arrived about 20 minutes before the time we had booked our table, and were asked as we ordered... More
