If you haven’t been before I would recommend estabulo as an experience. This was my third visit and although I enjoyed it it was very samey the meat is always good but I don’t think that i ever eat enough to get my money’s worth. The salad bar is lovely

Poor service and price doesn’t reflect standard of meat. They’ll struggle now Tomahawk has opened up next door.

We had a really lovely night. The food was beautiful. So much choice on the salad bar and all the meats that were brought to our table were cooked to perfection. I felt comfortably full when I left which for me is perfect. Definately return

We came as a large group with children and everything was brilliant. The service was excellent, professional and efficient. Food there os to die for and plentiful. It comes as mid range for price but it is well worth it!

This was probably our 8th visit but may well be our last. For the second time service was slow with often long waits for meat and once the meat arrived the quality did not seem great. Fell in love with this place and recommended to loads of people so to have two disappointing experiences in a row will probably mean we don’t have a ninth visit.

We have been numerous times, this time service was slow and we barely had any meats to start, ended up filling up on salad. Expensive salad for £71. It was far too loud, could barely hear ourselves speak. Really disappointed as this had been one of our favourite places to eat.

Noisy, kids running round tables.. felt like I was in Macdonalds on a Saturday afternoon. Music loud. Expected a romantic, special experience, was very disappointed. Buffet bar was nice, good selection. Meat was ok, nothing special. Was supposed to be 15 meats, think we saw 11, 2 of which were repeated so 9. Brought 3 or 4 meats in quick succession and then was left with empty plate for 20 min intervals. Expensive for what it was, would not go back.

Pleasant place with a good vibe.
Food is very good with a nice selection of meats and an extensive buffet. All very nice.
Staff are pleasant but there is little finesse in service and can be rushed.
The cost is expensive both for food and wine for what it is and at £86 for two with a bottle of wine there going to put price themselves as there are better restaurants offering great dining at half this locally.
Pleased we tried it but we won’t be in a rush to return.

I couldn't have asked for better food or a better more attentive service.
Our very rare date night as parents was made even more special by the fact that although the place was busy there is nothing you could have asked for that felt too much for the servers. 11/10

It seems I'm in your debt once again.
My thanks, I could not have kept my promise without you.
Now, for a final toast.
To your valour, and my old friend Yhorm.
Long may the sun shine!" (laughs)

"Well, I'm going to have myself a little nap.
The only thing to do, really, after a nice toast.
You are a true friend. Best of luck with your duty."

Myself and my husband visited with our two children and were amazed at the choice of food even down to the cheeses and cured meat. The meat on screwers was cooked to perfection and even my two children really enjoyed it. The waiter who served us was also extremely pleasant and helpful

A very enjoyable yet different take on the typical 'steak night'. Lovely & varied selection of sides & accompaniments for our meat choices which were wide & beautifully cooked. Having a healthy appetite helps here as you won't be disappointed in the quality & portion sizes of great cuts of meat. For those with lesser appetites you are in complete control of the speed of service & quantity of meats you eat.
A great night out for the family.
