I was part of a big group (60+) and we were looking for a place to have a meal. We happened on Eight South by chance, but what a find. It's a lovely restaurant with a large function suite, but the best part is the staff and the food. The food choices are great and the drinks menu is outstanding.... More

I visited Eight South back in April with the family and I can safely say we won't be returning. I ordered my steak rare and it came on a sizzling platter. If I wanted a sizzling platter I would of ordered it. So when I actually got my steak on a normal plate it had gone to medium as it... More

Very attentive staff with good, wide selection of food for both children and grown-ups alike. Big portions for adults. Good value at standard prices. Suits all age-groups which is really good for family dining out. Plenty of varied seating and attractive, modern ambience. I recommend Eight South

Honestly with 4 kids, we get many tuts and scrowls from other diners and staff. We went to eight south and the staff could not have been better, patient and attentive. The food was great and well priced. We had a party of 9 and although we had a few comments from one diner it is one of most relaxing... More

This is a lovely restaurant. Modern, clean. Many positives- bar attached, off-licence. We visited on a very quiet Wednesday night. We had -throughout the night- difficulty getting the attention of the staff-- and there was enough of them for a less than busy night. Even though service was slow- staff themselves were lovely. We all found the food a little... More
