On the starter and steak alone this is definitely one of the best I've had.
On arrival, this restaurant is obviously upper class, lovely decor. Great for late opening too - we booked for 9pm and on booking they stated they would require the table back for 11pm. We thought - they had better be quick at serving! And they are, very swift.
Whilst we were deciding I chose a banoffee martini - if you are a sucker for sweet drinks then please try this - so amazing.
We shared the Thai fishcakes and duck spring rolls with hoisin sauce, the spring rolls were definitely my favourite considering I had never tried duck before.
We of course had steak for main. I had sirloin with champs potatoes (had to ask what this was but basically a chopped up jacket potato with spring onion) with a blue cheese sauce. The steak came out more medium-rare than medium I would say, but I really really enjoyed it so I am now a convert. The sauce was fantastic and definitely plentiful. The potato also a lovely accompaniment. You don't get any extra sides/salad/veg unless ordered.
My partner had a steak of the specials - whisky/BBQ glazed steak with chips - also really enjoyed it.
On the steak alone we both said it tops the list and we will remember it.
My partner quite enjoyed his chocolate fudge cake but I thought my dessert was of slightly disappointing standard compared to the rest. I had sticky toffee pudding with custard which was fairly nice but it in no way tasted homemade and felt like a microwaved production sponge.
A slightly disappointing ending especially when faced with a £100 bill for 2.
The staff were fab and service was super, super swift - I thought it would have to be due to the table bookings, but it was nearly unbelievable!
Great meal if you want a treat or don't mind spending a bit extra - try the cocktails and perhaps skip the dessert. Otherwise it is definitely overpriced, but I would go back purely for the steak.
I understand this is part of a small chain so I would definitely look to try in another city.
