The food was okay, but the ribs had next to no meat on them and the steak was not cooked medium-rare like I asked, it was medium at best.

Service wasn't the friendliest, the waiter seemed a bit miserable.

The noise level was very loud as there was a large group behind us shouting and laughing.

This is not a cheap option, but the quality of the meat served there is worth every penny. If you are a steak lover, this is the place for you.

The service is excellent. Food and drinks were served promptly and orders were correct. I would recommend that if you want one of the larger steaks or a speciality steak you call in advance as they are happy to reserve them for you.

We booked for a birthday, so the staff presented the birthday boy with a platter with a message and a candle and rousing rendition if happy birthday.

Will definitely eat here again.

It is just so friendly, been a few times and the waiter now recognises me. Makes you feel special. We had a range of different meals, Steaks, Fish, Gammon, and every meal was delicious. We had our 9 month old granddaughter with us too. Highchairs available. Definitely recommend.

Had a rather disappointing meal here. The starters were fine as was one of the desserts, however the 2 mains (2 different steaks) and one dessert were only OK. The meat didnt have a great deal of flavour despite one supposedly marinated in oil and herbs and was a greyish colour suggesting the grill wasnt really hot enough. Will not be rushing back anytime soon.

Great food, great cocktails. Service was perfect. Seated quickly, order taken in reasonable time, and desserts offered in reasonable time.
I don’t usually have steak, but really fancied one so we chose to come here, I had the prime surf and turf which was delicious and steak cooked to perfection.

It was OK but wouldn't go back as the food was not anything special. I had a whole lobster which was OK but not hot when it arrived. Aside from the sweet potato fries, none of the food 5 of us ordered was outstanding. A bit petty, but i asked for butter with the bread served and was given margarine. I asked for butter but was told they didn't have butter! On a very slightly positive note, we all enjoyed our alcoholic and non alcoholic cocktails.

We’ve been before and that’s the only reason I would recommend to a friend or go again. I know it was Father’s Day but we booked from 3 months ago. We we squeezed into the smallest space possible. 7 people on 2 tiny tables not even enough space for food and drinks or arm room to be able to cut your food. Was so close to people next to us that my 6 year old struggled to get through the tables. Couldn’t order certain foods due to time. Wasn’t told this at time of booking. We booked for 2pm. Was very busy so food took a long time to come out. 2hrs for 1 main and puddings. Staff we friendly and toilets clean. Just wish they went with quality over quantity when taking reservations.

Overall food was good, I had the Sunday roast beef, quality was fine and quantity of food was good except I'd of liked a little more meat, I am a growing lad after all, although the 3 guests I was with said the meal was ample for them, I must be a Gantet ;-)
But everything else was great, ambience, service and not to loud with most of the restaurant full. And make sure you get at Dine card, 25% off the whole bill, yes that includes the drinks.

Great food- good atmosphere and value for money. Waiter could've been a bit more upbeat/chatty & chips were overcooked but apart from that cannot fault the evening.

Was fairly disappointed with the food, had a starter and a main and wasn’t satisfied. Food wasn’t bad but was disappointing, just a really average meal. Was expecting a lot more.

Not the first time we have eaten there but did not live up to previous experiences. My husband wanted the beef Wellington but was told it took 40 mins which is not stated on the menu but is for other items. All of our steaks were undercooked and my accompaniments were cold. With 3 others who said their accompaniments were fine. Based on this experience I will not go back

The food was excellent - the best steak I've had, and my wife really enjoyed the lobster. We will definitely be going back again!

Food wasnt great. Steak was full of gristle. Jacket potato was microwaved. Dessert was awful. We did have one of them taken off the bill. We were quite disappointed

Food was very nice, but not a lot of it. Children’s meal was meant to come with a build your own banana split but it came out ready made, no strawberries or sprinkles as advertised so children were disappointed. Was very quiet so would expect service to be good and it was as expected.

Would probably not go there again as was not outstanding

Great to have a steak house in the town centre offering different sizes of steak, not everyone wants a 10 oz which is a gross size. Here you can choose 6, 8 or 10. Prawn cocktail superb as well. Only thing missing was crump steak on the steak list.

Booked for Sunday lunch (roast dinner) to be informed that had no roast dinners left!
Site recommends pre ordering for parties of 8 and more however we were a party of 2 with a reservation time of 14.30.
Really disappointing. Also Felt that staff were not particularly understanding or apologetic enough. Could I not have been contacted before hand perhaps.
We took our custom elsewhere.

Booked Middletons for a birthday meal as it looked good and the menu was very tempting.

Called ahead to say running 10 mins late and was told no problem. Arrived and was left stood looking around for nearly 5 mins whilst 2 waitresses looked at us and continued cleaning tables until a senior member of staff approached us and said the table wouldn’t be long.

The food

Starter - garlic mushrooms. Pretty sure they forgot the garlic and the sauce was very thin. Prawns were ok.

The steaks - not a complaint at all. Very nice.

Desert - Bailey’s cheesecake! Could not taste any baileys at all. The Middleton’s sundae seemed to be ice cream, cream and a few (very few) bits of chocolate thrown in.

Hopefully this was just a bad night but if not, just have the steak as the rest just wasn’t in the same league.
