    I have been trying to have lunch with my husband for ages and it has not been possible due to work, so suprising him for lunch was a real treat for us both. Thanks Sharon

    Took my wife here for a mid week birthday dinner. Very good food, excellent service and very pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Followed the meal by a pleasant drink in the bar. Would recommend for business meals and quiet evenings. Will be visiting again in the near future.

    Dined on 7/7/2012
    I had an early dinner at Caxton Grill. The decor is lovely, modern but warm and inviting. Lots of nice details. The early dinner special is good value, but the choice is essentially fish and chips, a hamburger (a fancy one, but still a hamburger), and a vegetarian option. The main dinner menu looked really nice though.

    Yet another lovely meal at the Caxton Grill... The service is wonderful, low key and accommodating... even when I'd moved the dining time at the last minute and one of our party was late. They suggested we have a drink on the terrace which was lovely given the unexpected sunshine and the bar staff even created a bespoke cocktail for one of my companions! Food was of a very high standard as always and the service was wonderfully unobtrusive. This is the second time I've visited and will continue to recommend it to others.... I'll be back again soon!!

    Don't expect to have a cheap evening out if you eat here, but the food and service is good. You will not feel rushed as the table is your for the evening. To summarize - a pleasant evening out and so very convenient if you are staying at St Ermine's hotel.

    Dined on 22/5/2012
    This was my first visit to The Caxton Grill, following a recommendation from a colleague. The venue was for a business lunch after a meeting and was ideally placed near to my client's offices. Have to say we are were extremely impressed, none of our party had dined at Caxton Grill before, from the moment we entered the restaurant, to when we left. Service was outstanding, food superb, ambiance terrific and good value for money. Defiantly worth another visit!

    Visited for lunch during work, the service was great, and the food arrived promptly. Which is always good when you do have to get back to work. The setting is very relaxing, good at helping you forget you have to go back to work!

    I took my parents here before Billy Elliott and was very impressed with the service and the food. We were running late and the staff ensured that our food was delivered to our table quickly whilst not compromising on quality. The setting is really nice with a plush interior. Keep up the good work :-)

    I booked a business dinner for 4 and have never been to this restaurant before so it was a bit of a gamble. We were all very pleased indeed with the result. From the moment we arrived the staff were welcoming, polite and efficient. The food was very good and the setting ideal for such a dinner where you don't want the high noise levels that you so often find in rerstaurants these days. Definitely worth going back to.

  • Rare Mis-steak
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 18/4/2012
    Overall the food was good with an interesting menu and the wine was excellent. However it was disappointing that the rare steak was served medium at best - there was the fainted hint of pink through the middle. Despite having a table booked for 8.15, after a drink in the bar we had to wait until 9pm to sit.

    Met my folks for dinner before theatre and was really pleased with this find. The only thing that was disappointing was that the set menu wasn't available so we had to order from the al a carte which was slightly more expensive. We only wanted a quick bite to eat so the set menu would have been perfect. The service and the food were great though and we would definitely go back there, maybe for a more formal dinner.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/3/2012
    Having searched the web for review of near by lunch alternatives with (recent) good ratings I came across Caxton Grill. On this basis deceided to give it a try for a business lunch the same day. It was a great success and definitively worth recommending. Ambience is very nice and relaxed with a wine bar with cosy seatings around a real fire place making it a perfect pre-lunch/dinner meeting place. Service, flexibility and food was all top class. Not cheap but worth every penny. I had the most delicious plate of lamb I can ever remember having tasted. On top of this it was nice, for once, to be in a place with a tranquil feeling allowing you to actually hold a conversation without feeling as if in a central station. Highly reccomendable.

    The food was lovely and my main meal which was the special red mullet with chorizo was especially good. The presentation was faultless. One of my colleagues however did say their main was not very warm. The service was good however they did leave us sometimes for too long and there was no-one around to ask for more drinks.

    Caxton Grill is a great restaurant for business lunch. I booked this for my Director who told me that the service was quick, attentive whilst being unobtrusive. The restaurant was quiet which was great for doing business and we feel it is currently a hidden gem (probably not for much longer). Food is of top quality and I am returning next week for afternoon tea.

    I have said previously that the reception experience is muddled. There is never anyone in the reception area and it is pot luck if anyone finds you on the way into the dining area. I hate the side dishes being called 'accents'! How pretentious. I was not amused to be charged £4.00 for a pot of passable tea which was only enough for one cup. Other than that pretty good.
