    Excellent break with my husband. Very friendly staff. A short but diverse menu, which is for me a sign of quality. I had a generous chicken club sandwich which was delicious, not dry, perfectly toasted, served with excellent chips. My husband had some delicious beef with chimichurri sauce and chips as well. A special mention for the perfect cooking of the meat, really "rare". We will come back :)

    We visited the Crane tap for Sunday lunch. It was outstanding, football was pn, and it was a bit noisy with chatter, but we had plenty of room, good service and did not feel rushed. We also took our dog, which is a bonus for us.

    Bottomless Sunday roast was epic! Beef was superb, as you’d expect from the Gaucho link. Bernaise sauce on the side - great wine. Heavenly!

    Exceptional. Great service all round, very caring and knowledgeable. I asked for a cocktail made from scratch and no with pre mix and they were happy to accommodate. Food is excellent, especially the Sunday roast. Wines were slightly different dates on the menu compared to the bottle so be aware of the prices. This needs to be reviewed! They allow dogs too, however, when there are a few in there it becomes a bit much. Only downside is there is no parking on site, however, there is a car park 5-10 mins walk away. Overall a must for anyone, date night, family get together, party. It is a place.

    Food was amazing. This was our first time there. We had the Argentinian sausages as appetizers. They were great. My wife and I had the steaks (sirloin and ribeye). Sooooo good. And they surprised us with a happy birthday desert to my wife. Definitely coming back here.

    Great lunch menu and friendly service although a bit of a wait for the main course. Club sandwich excellent and good drinks selection. Busier than usual with England training fans which created nice buzz.

    The set valentines meal was excellent. The starter was a bit weak. Not very imaginative, but the tomahawk steak was outstanding the sauces were delicious. I think for the price they could have thrown in some broccoli or veg but we added that so it was a full meal. (1/2 baby Jem lettuce was nice but that is t the same as veg. Dessert was also delicious. Drinks took a while. We had almost finished starters before the drink arrived and the wine we ordered later took so long I had to let my steak go cold to wait for it. But the waiter was charming and service in general apart from the drinks was good. Not sure why the telly had to stay on as no-one was watching it and it’s not exactly romantic. The pianist was excellent and played a request for us. The acoustics are a bit noisy and the tables are an inch or two too wide so it’s hard to hear. But overall a delicious meal and a lovely evening.

    Had a superb meal last night - we all agreed the ribeye and sirloin steak was the most flavoursome steak any of us had ever had and we eat a lot steak! Even our daughter ate the lot! Asked where it came from ‘Argentina’ it was beautiful! The Caesar salad was plentiful and very nice too! As for the starters the chicken wings very tasty smoked salmon nice and fresh and desserts there just was no room left to try!

    I do like the Crane Tap it is smart and has a nice atmosphere (as long as there is no rugby) the food was delicious we had the superfood salad. I would say for the price the chicken was a bit thin on the ground which is why I lost a star. The waiter though very pleasant was too in our faces. Too frequent. We don’t need to say the food is nice 4 times while eating it. Once at the end is fine. It can get loud, I noticed by the end because the dining tables are so wide we were shouting at each other. At one point some dogs started barking at each other but it didn’t last long. Why would you bring a dog to a restaurant in the evening? Come to think of it there were a lot of dogs for some reason but they were all well behaved. One crying baby but the parents took it away as soon as it started to wail. Overall a lovely evening and I look forward to visiting again on Valentine’s Day.

    The venue and the staff were great for a pre rugby brunch but we were very disappointed to find that at 10.45 am there are no brunch options available on the menu , only a full lunch/dinner menu and even then the club sandwich on that menu was not available .

    The food was very good, as usual, and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were unfortunate to have booked at the same time as a big, noisy party who had gathered in the bar area adjoining the restaurant. They, together with the background music, made it very difficult to hear one another across the table.
