At Arlo’s we have a simple and straightforward goal – to source the very best ingredients and to serve them quickly and simply. We’re determined to make Arlo’s the best possible local restaurant; the kind of place where we’d love to sit, eat, talk and drink.

We're family-owned and independent and we've picked up some fantastic awards from TimeOut’s Best Local Restaurant in 2016, the OpenTable Diner’s Choice awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and our TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2018. The Evening Standard praised our “no high-end cuts or high-end prices, just damned good steak” whilst the Metro labelled us “Brilliant for vegetarians….and a steak-eater’s paradise.”

We serve the highest welfare, grass-fed British native breed beef and we';re hugely proud of our vegetarian and vegan dishes. All recipes are cooked on site - fresh & homemade - every single day and yes, we do cut every single chip by hand every day – and we always will…because hand-cut, fresh chips are the best.

Fabulous brunch here on Mother's Day. They gave the ladies at the table a complimentary glass of bubbly, which was such a nice touch! Servers were all lovely and super flexible. They were happy to add or remove items on dishes or even order dishes as required (e.g. adding haloumi or a poached egg to a dish that did not feature them or ordering eggs any style with any trimmings without it being on the menu). Service mostly prompt as well.

They could have kept the coffee orders coming thicker and faster - coffee makes the morning sweeter! My second order of coffee never arrived at the table, but arrived on the bill - although was quickly removed when pointed out!

We will be back soon!

Was a shame because I'd been there twice before and it was great but this time all 3 of us had a really tough poor quality steak. Mine was not cooked medium - was well done :( and the service was quite inattentive, polite but we had to ask for the desert menu after waiting ages and saw others attended to much better. It wasn't that busy either so not sure what was going on... If it had been as nice as the last 2 times I'd definitely have gone back

Hi WillJ. First of all, thank you for coming to Arlo's for a third time - and also for your candid review. I am sorry that we did not live up to our previous quality and to your expectations. We were short-staffed on Saturday and also had brand new members of the waiting team but, nonetheless, the service you received is not at all what my team and I aim for. If you do consider another visit to Arlo's please do dm me at tom@arlos.co.uk and we will show you that this was a blip! Best, Tom

Arlos is excellent, offering a simple, restrained menu. But everything they do they do well. Quality of food and drink is great - my gin and tonic was perfect, and the burger and chips was fantastic. Can't really fault it to be honest. Great value for money too.

A great selection of food for both meat-lovers and veggies. My steak was a bit chewy - the waiter explained the reason why this sometimes happens and replaced my entire meal (side orders included) with a new (much less chewy) one without fuss. We will return.

Somehow I’ve missed that this place exists, despite being a local! Myself and my friends absolutely loved it. The food was fantastic and great to be in what is predominantly a steak restaurant but with a slightly different menu. We all couldn’t resist the idea of the bavette with Yorkshire pudding and it didn’t disappoint, we all thought it was fabulous. Lovely, friendly staff, great service and I finished on a particularly good espresso martini! I will most definitely be back, very happy to have found this place!

Very good restaurant that my partner I and have visited numerous times. You can enjoy breakfast, lunch and also dinner!

The milkshakes are delicious and very popular, so seating to the table by the milkshake machine is something that I would not recommend ;)

Overall a great experience.

We came to Arlos for mine and my mums birthdays, what an evening!
Not only did they create a bespoke cocktail for me, when dinner was done they surprised us with a birthday dessert each, with candles. It really made a fantastic evening.
The staff were amazing and service impeccable!!
Highly recommend!

Nice enough place, but lacked ambience and the menu was very limited. Only for people who are looking for red meat and bread. It seriously lacked healthy choices. Service was a bit dubious as well - we had to send our steak back as it was running with blood when we had asked for medium.
