“Reasonable. Nothing more.”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

Visited on a Saturday evening with a Groupon voucher.

Now firstly, the A La Carte menu published on the website is DIFFERENT to what you are actually handed. TOTALLY disappointing and unacceptable in my view. There is less choice and the starter and main I had seen on the webby were not available on the menu i was given. I questioned the waiter who told me i was WRONG!! So i showed him..!

Anyways it didnt detract from actually eating there. The service was good if a little slow in part. The resturant was not busy, 3rd weekend in Jan of course.

We went for starters of a beetroot and goats cheese salad & a prawn cocktail which was disappointing. Fresh leaves ruined with cheap tiny frozen prawns. Both were well presented i must add.

Mains were a. (1) mixed grill which came with catering style frozen chips and presented as if it had been simply thrown on the plate. (2) A chicken supreme on a bed of black pudding mash, in a cream sauce.Also went for a side of steamed veg and a red wine sauce. The chicken was in fact, very good.

We had to remind them for the sauce and the server did not ask how we would like the steak on the mixed grill.

The food quality and overall presentation was ok. Not great, certainly not too impressive.

No room for dessert, took coffee in the bar area. That took an age, then a further age for the milk!

For some reason, the mens washrooms were out of service. No hand soap in the alternative and there was a water leak in the bar ceiling. In addition, some of the internal decor is now looking rather tired and in need of touch up. The resturant was also rather cold.

A poor to average overall dining experience. Certainly worth nothing more than a Groupon.

We wont be returning.

“great food”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Great food, lovely staff and service. Nice bar area. The only thing I would say is we were sat next to a very hot radiator and asked to move. We were moved to a table near the back which had the kitchen door swing next to you each time someone went in the kitchen so we moved a third time. Despite this i would recommend it and go again but be choosy where you sit.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We have enjoyed our previous visits and the steaks have been first class, and these were both groupons, so we happily booked for the two of us on a Saturday night. As usual the service was excellent and very attentive, although a little slow possibly due to a party in around the corner. Since our last visit they now have a steak of the day on a separate steak menu. When asked we were told today was rump so both of us ordered these. The meat however certainly wasn't rump and resembled a top side joint that had been cut up. It looked delicious but was very chewy. The chips, sauces etc were all nice but the steak let it down. I had been telling everyone to go there for steak. Now I'm not so sure. We were offered a complimentary drink but declined as we already had a bottle of wine, which was very good, if we visit again we'll give the steak of the day a miss!

“nice but not "WOW"”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We had a groupon offer and the place was nice and the service was good. However they have no childrens meals displayed but were able to provide something for my daughter so all good. Dinner was not massive steak,chips,mushroom & tomato but was quite filling. The prawns for surf & turf were impressive and well worth paying that little bit extra for. The diane sauce well was not what I expected think the chef could do with a bit more practice. Overall good but without a groupon I wouldn't have visited the place. After reading the reviews I can understand that they seem to run out of alot of steaks within 1hour of us being there they had ran out of T-bone steak!

“Groupon - No worries!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

After reading several shocking reviews in relation to the Groupon deal (sold out of steak, seated differently, appalling service, etc) we were as expected quite nervous about our impending visit...

We we needn't of worried one bit, it was nothing like what some of the reviews had said. The only thing which was the same was the slightly slow service, but hey, that suited us down to the ground. We had a table booked at 8 and didn't leave till about 11. There's nothing worse than getting poor quality food in a very tight timescale! The food was very, very nice and at a pace which suited us all and our evening down to the ground.

Well done Signatures, we'll definitely be visiting again, very soon!
