I have just returned from an excellent (long) Sunday lunch in the 1808 Bar at the Step House. I was one of a party of 6 so we were able to sample most of the dishes on the menu - in short the meal was excellent. Everybody had 3 courses and it was clean plates all round. Highlights for me were the fish cakes, pheasant and foie gras and the pork belly from the appetisers. The roast sirloin server medium rare and the fennel sauce on the sea bream were the highlights from the mains (and the fabulous mashed potato). All the desserts were great as was the (all Irish) cheeseboard. Lovely staff (and the fact that my brother in law was paying) completed what was a very pleasant afternoon. I will return to the Step House to sample their dinner menu.
