Meal was okay but expensive for what you get. Cappucinos were weak and cold when served. The manager rectified this immediately but although these were hot they were still very weak . Don't think we'll go there again!

We were regular visitors at the Cattle Baron - it had a charm and ambience that was cosy and old worldly. The rennovation has brightened the property and opened up the venue. For us the EDGE is lost somehow. The food was average.

The Cattle Baron is under new ownership and has been completely revamped. The new decor is nice, fresh and well appointed. Much better than the previous, dark and somewhat dingy decor. Service was prompt and efficient. The waitress knew the menu well and could make...More

So it's been a few years since I went to Cattle Baron and since I was last there there was a change in management and a revamp done. It went from Steakhouse to Grill House. But call it what you will, the food is still...More
