A word from Anderson's Bar & Grill
Situated on St Paul’s Church square, Anderson’s Bar and Grill is found in the interesting surroundings of former 18th century cellars. However this restaurant is as far from a dingy basement bar as it is possible to be – lush, sophisticated décor brings light and space to the brick arched room, changing displays of art is displayed on the walls and there’s a definite buzz to the atmosphere. With a dedication to providing great value food in a relaxed setting along with top quality service, Anderson’s Bar and Grill is already making its mark on the local dining scene. The food, sourced locally is – of course – hearty grill fayre but presented with a touch of class so even old favourites such as Barnsley chop or grilled plaice are actually rather special.Continued

    dined on 18/04/2014
  • "A group of of four dined at Anderson's for lunch. Although we ate towards the end of service and ordered from the evening menu, the quality and excellence was the same as ever. Very impressive! "

    dined on 09/04/2014
  • "This was the 5th or 6th time I have booked Anderson's Bar & Grill. I've never had a bad experience and this meal was again fantastic. It was great value for a group of six people, as we all had starters and mains, one desert, one coffee, four bottles of wine and at least two other drinks each and the bill was still under £330!"
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "The 3 of us attended for a 21st birthday celebration and it was recommended. We were surprised it was in a basement but it was lit well and was airy. Service was very friendly and attentive. The menu had variety and all the food tasted very good. Our son really enjoyed his steak. Both wines were excellent. It was fairly expensive but you certainly get value. Had a very good evening."

  • "Lovely ambience great service and good food. Fantastic night with my husband would highly recommend"
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "I've paid half as much for food twice as good in the past. And the lack of choice available for wine by the glass was just a joke."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Even though we had had a party for my daughter the previous weekend we decided to go for a bit of a more intimate family meal and a friend recommended Anderson's. We couldn't fault it, the staff were polite, attentive and friendly, the food was first class and they even sang happy birthday to my daughter. A lovely evening, thank you to all the staff and chefs at Andersons."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "Service was perfect. Very prompt, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive staff. Catered for all ages. Lovely pale ale. Hospitable atmosphere. Clean facilities. The only let-down was the food considering the relatively high cost. Small main portions (surf and turf in particular) and insubstantial side dishes. The quality was fine."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Had a great evening at Anderson's with my girlfriend. We both ordered starters and the 14oz hanger which was delicious and the food was brought out to us promptly, with no big wait between the starter and the main which can sometimes be an issue at other restaurants. Not much else to say other than we both had a great time, we've recommended it to our friends and would definitely return soon."
    dined on 27/03/2014
  • "My husband & I had a wonderful meal. The service & quality were excellent. We will be eating there again."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "I was really looking forward to my visit after reading the reviews on the internet. Unfortunately I found the restaurant smelt funny inside - like toilet blocks used in urinals. It didn't however smell like it in the actual toilets so I don't know what caused the smell in the restaurant. My food was nice enough but my steak was overcooked. All in all just an average dining experience I'm afraid."
    dined on 24/03/2014
  • "Great ambience for a lovely occasion of my partners birthday. Food cooked to perfection,really pleasant staff. The nicest surprise for us both were the birthday wishes that were delivered with the desert. Thank you Anderson's :)"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Really pleasant staff couldn't fault the food the lamb was delicious! Will be going back as the price is also very reasonable for what you get!"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Early Saturday evening booking (5.30pm) turned out perfectly - time to enjoy some pre-restaurant wine tasting in Loki in the Great Western Arcade , a short walk to Anderson's and then a relaxing two and a half hours enjoying some excellent steak, attentive service, and cosy cellar ambiance. The night still young. Unobtrusive, nicely understated location just off St Paul's square - keeping up the pioneering work of its predecessor , The Bucklemaker."
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Steak were great and the passion fruit souffle was amazing. Avoid the Surf and Turf because it wasn't good. Ambiance and Service were Ok."
    dined on 20/03/2014
  • "The only thing I could fault was my fiancées steak was cooked medium when she asked for medium rare. Great service. Reasonably priced. Cocktails a tiny bit on the expensive side. I would definitely go back though."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "Chose Andersons from good web reviews and looking for a good steak at lunch Asked for a nice private table and got one"
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "We could not better the quality of the food and service. We would certainly go back again and recommend it."
    dined on 19/03/2014
  • "We had the sharing 30oz Porter House Steak, cooked to perfection along with some stunning accompaniments I highly reccomend this hidden gem of a restaurant."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "In view of the fact this restaurant prides itself on the quality of its steaks, our meal was disappointing. Neither the fillet or the sirloin were a tender as I would expect from really good quality steaks, although both were well cooked and of reasonable flavour, but Beyer steaks can be had elsewhere in the area."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "I have read such marvelous reviews about this restaurant that I decided it was high time I had a steak here. I ordered mussels for starters which were nice and very good value. For mains i had a fillet on the bone and some sides that were very nice, but the steak itself was majorly disappointing. I fail to see why the meat has got such good reviews as it genuinely didn't taste that nice at all! It was cooked accordingly but if it wasn't tasty there's not much point for a good review. I am sorry to say that I will not be returning to Anderson's for steak, I've had much better steak in way cheaper places."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "The restaurant was perfect in practically every way. Located in the prestigious St. Pauls Square it is the perfect venue to add a little class to your day to day life. I booked the table as an anniversary treat with my partner and the restaurant delivered in a way that was unexpected. the friendly atmosphere provided a place in which me and my partner felt comfortable being able to talk not only amongst ourselves but with staff also. the food was exquisite and served with a smile which is rare nowadays! it was nice not to feel any pressure to order straight away and our every need was catered for perfectly. overall it was a perfect place for our anniversary date and would recommend it to anybody."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "Amazing restaurant and food. Staff were excellent and went the extra mile. Have recommended this to everyone since going. We will definitely be going back"
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "Dinner with friends, great atmosphere, varied menu, great wine. Would definitely recommend this place and look forward to visiting again. Thanks"
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "I had been looking forward to going to Andersons for quite a while and was excited to be there at last. First impressions were good nice decor etc, but it was a lot smaller than I had imagined. There was a party of around 25 people seated at the end of the room who were noisy and annoying, we had to lean over our table to make ourselves heard not very romantic at all! The food was fabulous, the best onion rings I have ever tasted, but the lack of space and the position of our table which was next to both the kitchen and WC doors as well as the noisy table resulted in us leaving before we even finished our mains. If I ever do go there again I will be making sure there are no large parties and ask for a quiet corner with a bit of space."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "Having been for as part of a large group I cam with my wife this time for a special occaions. The atmosphere is good, the staff friendly and informative and the food superb. There can be only one reason to visit Andersons (for me) and that is the steaks. The quality is excellent and they are cooked to perfection. You pay for quality but I wouldn't say that the price was excessive. All round an excellent dining experience."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "I totally enjoyed my meal, the side dishes were a little cold but as usual delicious. The service was outstanding."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "After several friends recommended this restaurant we decided to book for our Wedding Anniversary. We were not disappointed. The staff were all friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. There was a good choice of steaks on the menu along with a few other choices for the non-steak lover. The food was all very well presented and plenty of it. The steaks were cooked to perfection. After a starter and main course we had no room for dessert - next time I think I may skip the starter in favor of dessert as the choice looked fantastic. The service remained very good throughout and we look forward to returning in the future."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "Frequented this place on many occasions, sometimes as couples or part of a larger group. The food and service has always been of very good quality and would always return and recommend."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "We went there as we had been told it was a good meal, it was our 31st wedding anniversary, so we wanted to have a nice meal. the service was good the food was good, very good portions, the price of the wine was acceptable, however, as much as we did not want to be there a long time we were there just over an hour, our table was booked for 7.30 pm, we arrived on time, , we were in our car at 8.40 pm, For me a little rushed and no real personnel touch, no one asked why we were out having this kind of meal on a Wednesday, If we had enjoyed it, we left a generous tip and we were only asked if we wanted change..... The place it self is clean and nicely set up."
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "Had a lovely evening for my birthday, would certainly dine again, steak was the best tasted in a long while"
    dined on 25/02/2014
  • "After 2 previous (very nice) visits, we thought this one night away would be crowned with a fabulous meal at Anderson's. It wasn't to be. I opted for the hanger steak (which according to the manager had to be served med rare) and my girlfriend, the ribeye. Our steaks arrived and whilst hers was good, mine was inedible - undercooked, so tough I couldn't get my steak knife through it. I eventually attracted someone's attention and sent the steak back, requesting a ribeye instead. My girlfriend ate hers while I waited and then mine was eaten after she'd finished! How kind of the management to not charge for the bread and 1 glass of wine when our whole dining experience had been ruined! Paid the £50 plus bill and left feeling very disappointed!"
    dined on 20/02/2014
  • "What a great location with amazing food. I took my with to the restaurant as a valentines supprise. We were not let down. With an amazing venue, outstanding menu and food, I will certainly be going back and have already recommended the restaurant to family and friends."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "We have had a week of date nights this week and Andersons has been the highlight by far. We arrived early to be greeted by one of the owners Simon, a lovely chap indeed. Once seated at 'the best table in the house' and totally sold on Simon's description of the pan seared scallops with chorizo for starters, we perused our menus for mains. Dexter steak for hubby, monkfish wrapped in panchetta for me, both with delicious accompaniments, but the big event came in the form of desert.... passionfruit souffle with mango sorbet and eaton mess (more like eaton tidy actually) with bourbon vanilla cream....AMAZING!! Staff were so attentive all evening and so happy to offer recommendations on the menu, you can really see their passion for the food."
    dined on 17/02/2014
  • "The quality of the food was amazing, not only the steaks, but even the sides were very satisfying. You're given good portions also."
    dined on 17/02/2014
  • "Looks lovely when first arriving, host was very attentive, seemed a really nice guy. Food was of a nice standard (nothing that would blow you away) .. pricey for a steak meal. Silly things let it down.. Cheap cruet sets, mismatched cutlery."
    dined on 17/02/2014
  • "My partner and I went for first home and will definitely being going back. Amazing starters, steaks were the best we have ever had, no room left For dessert!! Service was first class"
    dined on 17/02/2014
  • "The atmosphere in the restaurant was spot on. The layout means it is quite intimate without being locked away. The only thing I would recommend is that they could have taken our drinks order a bit quicker when we first sat down. That being said the food was absolutely delicious. We had the 30oz porterhouse steak to sharer which was cooked to perfection. The side orders were really good and the value for money was exceptional."
