    We came here for my dads 60th birthday and it was absolutely perfect! The staff were amazing as always and the food was delicious! I chose this restaurant for our special occasion as I’ve been here before (quite a few times) and I’ve never been disappointed. All of our main meals were cooked to perfection and you absolutely must try the desserts! Overall one of the best restaurants we’ve been to for a celebratory meal and we are looking forward to another visit here, very soon!

    Greeted upon arrival, shown to our table, we were asked if we were celebrating anything special? Explained both couples were celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary. We ere then given a complimentary glass of Prosecco with a straw Perry in it. What a lovely gesture. Our server was Tiara, an extremely polite, tentative and helpful young lady. Food was hot, tasty and nicely presented. Up

    Very efficient, very friendly service. There were two large parties with young children and hence noise level was higher than expected. However it didn’t interfere with our enjoyment of the meal, which was very nice. It was good to see such an establishment offering good service and top end food cater for young families.

    My friends and I came on 20th November 2021. We pre-booked for 7.30pm. The waitress we had called Hayley was very friendly and professional. The menu choices were quite good but the online menu seems to have more choices than the menu on the day. The starters were good. However, 3 of us ordered a whole lobster but felt it was on the small side considering the price they charge. We had bigger for less elsewhere. Plus we felt lack of choice of no garlic butter sauce on the lobster was disappointing as the lobster lacked that finish. However, the staff/service were really good. The dessert menu wasn't too bad either. Despite the size of whole lobster being disappointing, I would recommend this restaurant to others but please consider this is an expensive restaurant to eat at but worth it for it special occasion.

    If you are looking for a good quality steak meal - avoid! Restaurant re-opens for dinner at 5pm and upon arrival (10mins early) chef and waiters were outside smoking cigarettes. Please note at this point no judgement however, table for two both ordered steak considering this is what the restaurant is renowned for... my partner could not cut or chew his steak as it was over cooked (asked for medium) my steak medium rare was also tough. To make matters worse, chips were from the oven. The seasonal garnish / salad was straight from a bag unwashed and wilted ! If you like brown lettuce ends your in for a treat. Last but not least not a steak knife in sight which also made the meal very hard to eat.

    Popped a note on the booking that it was my husband’s birthday and it was not ignored!!!!! We had lovely service, lots of suggestions and no dietary issue was a problem (even our fussy eater and unusual requests!). The food was delicious, beautifully presented and cooked perfectly. A half lobster will never be as filling as steak but it was tasty and the desert menu was lovely. (They have spare glasses to borrow if the print is too small) We had a great atmosphere with laughter and respect in good balance. Bathrooms were clean and well presented with a basket of rolled flannels beside the sink for hand drying instead of wasteful paper or hot blowers and lots of hygiene points throughout. There is also a baby change, disabled and all-gender facility. The music was lively but not overbearing and the staff appeared to genuinely get along which is another big addition for the mood. Never hurried or neglected. The bill was less than we expected and we left happy that we chose to try Brettingtons. We will return when we can splash out again.

    Fantastic food - presentation of meal beautiful, Our server Sophia, welcoming from the moment we stepped foot in the door. It was nice to have a server who was friendly and couldn’t do enough to ensure we were happy. Added bonus as they knew it was a meal for my birthday they comped my dessert. Will certainly recommend to others and go back ourselves.
