“A good lunch-time choice for us”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

The Grill on the Edge is a Blackhouse (chain) restaurant. This does not mean, though, that the food is pre-prepared, or not tasty.

The menu is very full, catering to all tastes and appetites. We were drawn here for lunch by chance and liked the look of the outside menu. The surprise was that there is a lunchtime main course and drink special menu: which we opted for. Before then, though, we chose an English sparkling rosé as an aperitif. Sadly, nibbles are an (expensive) extra.

Although there is a full range of starters,- eg soups, calamars, spring rolls, foie gras, etc - we decided on a main course only. The offer included a choice of bacon & cheese Mac, club sandwich with chips, cheese burger, steak sandwich, fish & chips and grilled hake risotto (our choice). Drinks choices included wines, beers and water. The risotto was just OK but the hake was superbly grilled, with a crispy skin. It was a large portion (for us). The house Malbec was excellent.

The sweets list looked tempting - rhubarb fool, crême brulée, cheesecake, etc, plus cheeseboard. We had an affogato ristretti amaretto with vanilla ice cream and a "jaffa cake" liqueur from the 'and so to bed' menu: both very good.

Waiting staff were welcoming and helpful. All in all a recommended dining place.

“An overall excellent place to eat!!!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

We went on a Tuesday early evening, we found the staff very friendly and polite! We had a starter, main and desert, all 3 courses were of an excellent standard! The steak was perfectly cooked to our taste! The potion sizes are of a perfect size as not to over fill you! I would recommend to all of my friends! :-) x

“Tasty Steaks”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

A smart place to eat with great steaks. There was a good pianist performing on the evening that we ate here that was understated and classy.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We had high hopes for an enjoyable evening family meal but came away disappointed.
Plus points - one of the waitresses was lovely and truly tried her best to make amends for all the many negatives, the main one detailed below.
The service in general was awful!!! Waited far,far too long for the starters to arrive and then again for the mains. To quantify, we had been seated for over 2 hours before the mains arrived!
Considering this is meant to be a steak specialist, the quality was poor... tiny portions of fillet and rump steaks, poorly cooked.
Unfortunately, will not be returning.
