We dined here for the first time on 15th Feb and what a great dining experience it was. Loved The novelty of cooking your own steak on the hot rock and the quality of the food and the service was superb. The prices were fairly reasonable too, we ate off the valentines set menu and also had some very tasty cocktails. My only qualm with the restaurant was the shabby décor, otherwise I would say this restaurant is a hidden gem and we will be definitely be eating there again.

Ate here last night and cannot recommend it enough. Loved the novel idea of cooking your own steak on the rock in-front of you. Was great fun. The prices weren't too bad either, we ate off the Valentine's Menu, had 1 beer, 1 glass of wine, 1 cocktail, 1 pork starter, 2 fillet steaks with pepper sauce and 1 dessert which came to £75. Not cheap, but not too bad for a steak restuarant, and you get what you pay for.
My only complaint is that the tables simply aren't big enough, so there is only room for a tiny side plate to actually eat your food off. (You can't put sauce on the rock, so can't actually eat your food off it). I think the restaurant should invest in some larges tables to make the experience more comfortable for diners. If you go as a couple and they ask you where you would like to sit, you should ask for a 4 person table so you have plenty of room.
Also, not a complaint, but a slight warning, the restaurant can be very smoky when busy, due to the hot rocks. We came out absolutely stinking of it, not a problem for us as we went home after, but may be a problem if you were planning a night out after? Just something to consider.

Very enjoyable meal, will return.

The concept of having a hot rock to cook my steak is one of the best things I could have in the UK. My steak is often overcooked by a notch every time I ask for it to be rare and this is one way of ensuring this doesnt happen. Black Rocks concept is great and the selection of steak was amazing! Service was good and the accompanying sauces for the steak were great. Wine selection was reasonable. The steaks were on the pricey side but I dont mind it as the quality was great. A word of caution, if you aren't planning to eat steak at this restaurant, don't expect the same amazing quality. It is on the side of average.

Went on a blind recommendation with 30 colleagues! We did book as the restaurant only has 40 covers so we had the place to ourselves. The place is hidden off a side ally off Sadler's Gate and is very cosy. We had a set menu which included the signature dish of steak on a volcanic 'black rock'. Great service, excellence wine list and outstanding food - great value all road - well done Josh and all the team.
