Went to Chaplin's last year with my Dad who is a very big fan, a year on and I felt the need to write a review, haven't had a steak since as I know it won't taste the same! Steak and service both lovely.

You can't go wrong here - food and wine are great - service friendly and welcoming - enjoyed ourselves, the food and wine.

We went as a big group and they were very accommodating. The reason why we made the trek out here was to try their wing rib steak, something that is hard to find around and it did not disappoint. Although I would say that I was not a big fan of the Pepper sauce but the shoestring fries made up for it big time.

The service was very good and there were some nice starters to be had. The owner came over and had a chat with us which was very nice, a nice personal touch.

We picked the night that all the tables seemed to have a birthday celebration and they responded by giving each birthday person a dessert.
The staff are friendly and very helpful. The food was good. everyone in our party had something different and there were no complaints.
The wine list is very extensive but the only problem is that there are not too many mid price range wines. They are either very cheap or very expensive. So this may put someone off.
We had a great evening.

It was lovely to visit this well-known restaurant again, since it moved from Melville to Bryanston. The food was lovely as always and the service was efficient. We had an enjoyable evening!
