A distinct lack of communication from the kitchen to front of house. The king prawns I had were not de-pooped during prep and were served in some crazy fusion of chilli in a white wine garlic & butter consommé, which just tasted strange. The cheesecake base on the menu so dense you couldn’t eat it and was supposed to be with served with coconut ice cream, however it came with vanilla. No coconut left apparently and no explanation made before placing the order. The huge chunky chips I had with my fillet steak were not cooked enough. And my piece of fillet (although cooked blue as requested) was not the greatest of steaks. A very overpriced place to eat for the lacklustre food and service it delivered. We got the uneaten desserts taken off the bill; almost as though they were doing us a favour. I wouldn’t recommend or go there again. I don’t mind paying those prices if the basics are executed correctly (food & service).
Friendly,efficient service , nice ambiance but parking was a way off. Traditional steak menu suffers in comparison to the new Argentinian style restaurants in the area but the ribs are the best. Worth going for them alone.
E' la terza volta che ci vado ma non è sicuramente l'ultima! Il locale è pulito e la carne che servono è veramente eccellente. Provate le rib, l'agnello e le alette... Spettacolo! Non vedo l'ora di tornarci.
We had a good experience and the food was really good. Especially enjoyed the fresh warm breads. Was disappointed the fish wasn’t available so ended up having the veg risotto. It was delicious though and a generous portion.
Was there at a very quiet time so not much atmosphere. Would love to come back one evening with a group of friends.
Prawns were delicious and Bailey's dessert was great. Steaks were unfortunately overcooked. Medium rare came out well done.
Never disappoints, good food, excellent value & the music was spot on when we ate there
Food was tasteless puddings we couldn’t find the ice cream too much cream and total bill was To high
Have used Lannistars many times and I'm afraid it appears to be going downhill.
Following a menu change last year the the variety and quality have slipped.
To add insult to injury a whopping 11% service charge for a table of 3 is outrageous!
Unlikely to be returning any time soon!!!
È stata Decisamente una scoperta. Cibo eccellente, starter impressionante con delle costine veramente tenerissime e qualità del cibo decisamente alta per un conto finale di soli 219 Pound per 6 persone. Ottimo
Took my daughter for her 16th birthday with the rest of my family.
Very tightly packed in to a corner of the restaurant, opposite the disabled toilet and it felt very chlostrophobic.
The place was very noisy and we could hardly hear each other without shouting.
The food was ok but nothing special for the £176.00 bill, 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 four year old !!
Would not recommend this place to friends or family, it’s less than mediocre.
We came here for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant was very quiet so you could hear one tables conversation, they need some background music to give the place some ambience.
The service was good. The wine selection was very nice. Starters were nice however I had a hair in mine which really put me off.
The steak was ok, we have had better elsewhere.
I’m not sure I would go back to be honest, certainly not for a special occasion, very disappointing.
Great food, generous proportions, excellent service. Able to have a good conversion without having to shout.
Food was very good, waiting staff were not very attentive for such an empty restaurant..
An excellent porterhouse steak and delightful cheeseboard
Always have the ribs. And they are always amazing.
food was good, the place was nice, but was empty on a Sunday evening. Just us and another table. So not much of an atmosphere.
There wasn’t many people in there, we expected it to be busy as being a Friday evening, and were shown to a area where we could sit anywhere.
The staff were very attentive (too much!) but they did take my gluten free & fish allergy in to consideration.
There wasn’t anything on the starter menu that we fancied so we ended up asking for a starter portion of ribs & bread/olives, but they came as a main portion. Skip the olives though they were mushy, and my husbands ribs were cold.
The fillet was ok, underdone for me and it was bleeding even though we ask for medium. Again the food wasn’t hot.
Overall, it’s definitely not somewhere where we would go again.
Great food great service good value for money worth the drive from london
This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was excellent, very well presented and cooked to perfection. There was a good variety on the menu and the waiting staff were very attentive.
Superb meal, lovely ambience, excellent service. This restaurant is a real gem - definately worth a visit. The food is delicious and its lovely to sit outside (good screening means road noise isnt an issue). They make a mean cocktail too!
Excellent food and service although a little pricey it's well worth it !
If you like overcooked beef, venison, dry overcooked burgers with greasy flaccid chips at an expensive price then this is your restaurant.
Lovely fish dishes at a moderate price. Lovely outdoor terrasse. We really loved our meal.
Not sure what has happened to Lannistars, perhaps a change of chef. We went there two months ago and had very good steaks. Went again last week and had the worst steak I've ever experienced, incredibly overcooked, dry and tasteless. Couldn't have been worse if i'd cooked it myself. The rest of the food to be fair was reasonably good.
Very nice Al Fresco dining on a nice Summer's evening. Good food and friendly service.
Vistited for a birthday celebration. Good food, helpful service. Comfotable seating - not too cramped.
2nd time I've dined here and it has been consistently good. I've primarily come here for the fillet steak which is done to perfection with a good choice of which sauce you'd like with it. Nice salad options as well. I had the special two cut lamb course the 2nd time though and it was lovely and tender in generous cut portions. I did like the roasted root veg that came with it as well. Side triple cooked chips were crispy and I don't know how they batter the onion rings but the super crunch texture is fantastic. The seafood starters were just as good. Well presented succulent scallops cooked just right and juicy langoustines which were served well with a water bowl but with the shells already removed up to the head. This is much better than some places that insist on leaving all the shell on which I assume is to keep the juices contained, but are a bugger to handle for these small crustaceans without making an unholy mess. I really wanted to try their eton mess desert which is a favourite of mine, but alas I'd already over-indulged in the previous courses and also tasting my partner's choices. Next time... The decor layout and ambience is nice and service was attentive, though I did go for early lunch and dinner when there were only a few other customers. I'll definitely be returning for more.
The food here was incredible and such good value as you get loads! We ordered a variety of meals from both the main menu and the chef specials, all of which were made to perfection. I chose this restaurant based on its good reviews from other OpenTable users and it didn't disappoint at all. I would highly recommend the ribs as these are some of the best I've ever had.
Another very enjoyable meal thank you. Steak again cooked perfectly.
Excellent food and lovely people a very enjoyable evening with my family.
Last minute booking for lunch on a Thursday, restaurant was quiet, service was good, food was good. The only downside is the lack of parking, as it is situated on a busy roundabout.
Good service. Enjoyable food. Would go back.
Fantastic Food and Service !!
We went to Lannistars on Saturday 18th February for my wife's birthday. There were 10 of us in our party and we booked the restaurant through the recommendation of a friend. I must say that we are so pleased that we did book and the whole experience at Lannistars was amazing, from start to leaving. The staff are lovely, the food is wonderful, the restaurant is so nice and the bill was so reasonable. We will definitely be going there again and I am sure it will be in the very near future.

great meal, service and vale (it was on valentines so they were busy too)
will go again
Best Steak for a long time! Booked this last minute as a recommendation and so glad we did. Food was perfect, atmosphere was lovely and staff really friendly and attentive. Went upstairs to the toilet and noticed another more private dining area that looked perfect for a family/friends celebration. Definitely up there with one of our favourite restaurants now!!
Excellent food and value friendly great lunch deal
Main course & service was excellent & friendly, the restaurant was very well laid out & spacious.
The only negatives was the bad car parking spaces & maybe a little more variation on Dessert menu.
Very pleasant meal enjoyed by three generations of family - would readily return
