Food wasn’t worth the money. Salad bar has a good selection however you get very small pieces of meat that isn’t that great.

Tables were waaaaaay too close together considering we are still in the middle of a pandemic. And i mean like ridiculously close. Food spectacular. Service charge of over 10% was automatically added which was bit rude and expensive on an already expensive bill.

Lovely food and amazing service but only worth the cost if you’re going to eat plenty!! Drinks are a little on the expensive side at £9 for a gin.

Background music to loud to have a conversation without shouting or leaning over the table. I like salt on my food but most of the meats were way too salty

Food was lovely however first time visiting the server (meat) Which is the main part of the experience, was rude. Welcome from the door host was friendly and inviting. Also from the young man whom served our drinks.
We paid for the later meal however we definitely did not get the full value for money with only around 6 types been offered to our table. However compliments to the chief this was outstanding. The salad bar was literally “thrown” on to the plate.
We removed the tip felt a little deflated by the experience from the “server”
Had this individual not being serving and the whole menu on offer this would have been a 5 star experience.

Went with hubby on Saturday evening and were welcomed at the door.
Filled in our salad choices which arrived after about 10 mins.
Ordered a drink and started eating salad.
The waiters then started bringing the meat on skewers. I like mine blue which was not a problem.
After about 5 or 6 meats, I was forced to put my card red side up. I'm just glad I only asked for a small amount 9f salad as this place is not for the feint hearted.
The quality of the meat I had was very good but I honestly couldn't do it justice. I personally wouldn't go again for that reason and thought that £30 per head was expensive.
If you have a big meat appetite then this is the place to go.
Just a postscript, the cleaners could do a better job.

Great dining experience. Perfect service. Wonderful ambience and an excellent choice of meats. Could expand the fish/vegetarian option though. Drinks are a bit overpriced. A free refill on soft drinks would be a good thing or introduce or a 2-4-1 on cocktails.
