Food was lovely, we did have to ask for the set menu as advertised on the web site, they did say it was for pre ordered bookings only, saying that they were very happy to let us choose from that menu. Our waiter was lovely, polite and attentive. A lovely afternoon was had.

I’ve eaten here with different friend groups many times and it’s always been fantastic.
Unfortunately last night wasn’t our best experience and we won’t rush back.
The young lady with red hair was our waitress, she was extremely happy, polite and very helpful.
We had various food issues unfortunately with every course.

Lovely place. Good service. One of our meals was very poor. Steak was very over cooked. I think the plate may have been microwaved. There was a very noisy party of 4 near to us. Swearing. Difficult to chat. Have loved 1573 in the past, but sadly wouldn’t return.

I really do not know what has happened to 1573 ? , we were once regular visitors here and always had a lovely time with excellent service and food , we decided to try again after lockdown and knew the restaurant had also had a ownership change.
It was incredibly disappointing , vastly reduced menu , slow service, not busy
, average food and very expensive.
We ordered ribs and was told 15 mins later they were not any , we ordered a side of garlic mushrooms , these did not turn up but appeared on the bill.
Come on 1573 , get these problems sorted and get the menu back to before by offering more choice and a steak selection.
A very disappointing evening unfortunately.

Very enjoyable meal out with friends in good location. A little pricey, but good food.
I would go again on a special group occasion, but not necessarily just for a meal out.

We love going to 1573 but we're disappointed this time that all steaks are now an additional charge on the Groupon deal which was not the case previously, for this reason we will probably not do the deal again.
Food was beautiful as always staff very friendly

Food was OK, though there were a few things on the menu that were unavailable.

Service was, erm... brisk and to-the-point.

Fortunately the warehouse rave-style music we were treated to during main course calmed down just in time to enjoy dessert.

Prices are a bit out of whack with the quality and experience, if I was being generous I'd say it was probably worth about half of what I ended up paying.

The menu and whole feel of the place hasn't really changed over the past five years or so. It feels a bit stale to be honest. It needs a change of ownership and/or management.

Booked the groupon deal so a limited menu but still plenty of choice. Friendly service and plenty of options for gf and vegetarian. Soup came with normal bread but was quickly replaced with gf when I queried it and then soup topped up as well. Good food and reasonable wine prices. Too full for pudding sadly. The groupon deal is great value.
