Fab place, meat was fantastic and so was the service
We have visited before and were looking forward to returning, we booked through Open Table for 8.30pm, we did not know that it closed at 9pm, so after receiving our drinks order at approx 8.45 we visited to salad bar. We felt a little bombarded with the meats, one straight after the other, which go cold pretty quickly. We were then told that they closed at 9pm so the salad bar was being removed in 5 minutes, this explained the hurry. We were served everything on the meat menu but despite our cards being green they did not return with another offering until I asked if we could have more rump steak. The waitress did eventually come and ask if we wanted anything but we felt rushed and like we were meant to leave asap so said no. I suggest they remove the 8.30pm Sunday booking.
All good except overpriced drinks and service charge added to bill
Great service. Great food. Staff were very helpful. Overall great experience.
As always, we had a fantastic meal at Estabulo! It was my parents’ first meal out since shielding from the beginning of lockdown, and they felt very safe. Service, food and drinks were to a very high standard too. Thankyou for a fab night
Would highly recommend. Food is fantastic, so is the atmosphere, almost feels like your on holiday. Staff are fantastic and so friendly, and love when they go to tables singing happy birthday.
Honestly the best dining experience I have had. I can’t stress enough how nice the food is. I was sceptical as I thought it would just be a hot plate style buffet but I couldn’t of been more wrong .
Had no expectations on first visit, very professional friendly service and food was fantastic! Will be returning soon
Lovely food very friendly staff thank you very much
Outstanding service really helpfull staff and amazing food
Staff were very welcoming and the food was high quality. I very enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend.
Food absolutely outstanding would recommend to anybody who asks about the place so much choice even salad bar is brilliant will be back again as our regular treat place.
Service was excellent from start to finish
Food was very good
Most of the meat was tough. Prices confused because of variation in prices across menus from other locations.
A birthday lunch for my mum and dad. It was our first time and we all really enjoyed it. All the staff were kind, welcoming and attentive. The food was delicious with plenty of choice on the buffet. The meats were fantastic. We were all stuffed to breaking point. A nice touch at the end of the meal was when they gave my mum a free, tasty chocolate dessert with a candle. Brilliant! Thank you for a good time. We're coming back soon.
Great food ,friendly staff lovely atmosphere. But pricey for a afternoon meal .Place was empty . maybe because its £19.95. Might get more in if it was £15 a head .
Amazing food and amazing service! Would definitely go again. 10/10
Overall a very good experience, the food was lovely and there was plenty of it.
Our experience was slightly spoiled by our drinks order being forgotten and there being a large group at the next table who were very rowdy and were using e cigarettes at the table.
Was so impressed by the beautiful food and great service. When we first arrived I wasn’t happy with the table we were given felt a bit out on a limb however everything else more than made up for it. Loads of choice at the salad bar too. The service was excellent checking on us quite a few times, will definitely be returning.
Fantastic restaurant. Great food and staff are so nice. Definitely recommend.
Not all menu options listed were offered during our time in the restaurant
Good food but very pricy for the menu then all of the additional drinks etc
Meat was fatty and rarely came round selection of meat was not what is advertised for the night time menu even though you pay extra for a larger selection. There was extremely large gaps between the meats coming round meaning in the time we were there we didn’t get much and still paid full price and left hungry. Further more some of the waiting staff were very ignorant and rude. Wouldn’t return any time soon
Nice environment with bubbly staff. The meat was very good (as you’d hope) - the only negative was that it wasn’t an ‘even flow’ - several times 3-4 different meats appeared one after another, so you didn’t necessarily get to enjoy each cut separately.
They didn’t have the wine we wanted, but they did ‘upgrade’ us to a more expensive bottle for the same price; which I thought was excellent
Greay meat, only 2 unavailable.
Pop and water too expensive.
Excellent service from staff.
Not impressed with the 10% added service charge so won't return.
Great place to eat and food was delicious. Will be going again soon!
Food was absolutely delicious and lovely helpful staff
We have been once before my girlfriend and I. This time we took our parents and it was amazing as expected. The food was absolutely perfect, atmosphere spot on and the staff as usual made the night better with their great friendly service. Would recommend to everyone and we will be back!
This was our first experience & may be we just hit a bad night? Sorry to say though, that the service was slow & the flow of 'meat' was even slower - with people saying (who has been before) the meat normally comes round much quicker. I requested that we would like to try the chilli beef, as it never reached our table - it never came. For what we got, sadly it was not value for money. I doubt we would go back again.
We had a lovely meal and would recommend to anyone 👍
Treated my partner to a anniversary dinner and although the company was great the experience was not.
I personally was looking forward to the filet mignon and found this chewy/fatty and even tasted like kidneys!
My partner is a huge fan of gammon and she took one look and realised it was 1/2 fat and 1/2 meat, so passed it away.
Luckily we enjoyed 2slices of rump but for £30 each I wish I’d of waited to take her out for a Sunday roast.
You have a green/red code with the mats and I left mine on green the full time to hope some better filet mignon was available, not once was I asked for any choice of meat after 3/4 hour been on green! Is this because we ordered a grey goose vodka?
And been a fan of this I have to say it really didn’t taste like it did.
Look forward to your feedback.
A little over priced at£30 per head I guess we could have eaten as much as we wanted it there is a limit to enjoying and eating too much for the sake of value.
I’d probably not go back in a hurry
Salad bar had an amazing choice and the selections of meat was a delight.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good food 👍🏻
Service was outstanding; the lady serving the wine couldn’t have been better and the table waitress was superb.
Food was delicious, the salad bar is always full of choice.
Food and staff were excellent service was frequent and all food was hot
Beautiful food brilliant service we do love it here for a family lunch definitely recommend
Great place for celebrating a birthday. Staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was beautiful. The food was delicious too. I would recommend.
Great place to enjoy the amazing food. Stay away from the buffet, it's too nice and may fill you up and won't leave much space for the amazing steak. Best steak: Picahna Steak!!!
Great choice and attentive staff. I'd like the salad bar to be labelled with a little more detail ie contents of things like the chickpea salad which I couldn't tell if it had bits of pork meat in etc. Apart from that I would definitely return.
