Using OpenTable was easy to make a booking (my first use) I booked this restaurant due to its fantastic reviews. It definitely lived up to them. Booked for my husband's birthday. We were treated to a birthday drink. From the moment you arrive the reception you get from the manager is amazing. In fact all staff were friendly and helpful. Our waitress; Amy explained everything perfectly.
Clean, tidy. 1920's decor.
If you love steak then this is the perfect place to go.
You use a hot stone during the meal to cook your steak perfectly at your table.
What a fun experience.
Thank you. Can't wait to go back.

Amazing experience
I traveled down to Bristol a 2and a half hour drive to treat my brother. Seeing that mugshot was no.1 on trip advisor we went there. We had the “caveman” sharing steak which was amazing. The whole experience you get is great next time I’m around in Bristol I’ll be back!

Fantastic melt in the mouth steak. All their produce and meat is local and organic which is perfect. All in all a perfect experience. The prices aren't bad at all especially as you get so much for your money, I think the four pound signs on tripadvisor should really be ££-£££. Will definitely be going back and telling everyone about the amazing experience we had.

This restaurant is certainly something different; you have to cook your own steak on the hot stones! I couldn't fault the service, everyone was really friendly and helpful. The steak was lovely, but in hindsight a rare rib eye can be a little sinewy and I should have had a fillet or even a tuna steak. The choice of 2 butters is lovely, and I would thoroughly recommend the honey butter. Delicious!
All in all, nice atmosphere and definitely a different dining experience. If a little smokey.

Very sophisticated ambiance matches perfectly with the cuisine. Carefully chosen butters with hotstone steak is to die for. Great value but the chips are divine. Accompany yourself with a nice glass of red or try the endless choices of cocktails, spirits or non alcoholic beverages. If steak isn't your go to then try the pizza but I couldn't resist the sirloin & my friend had the picanha which was only available on the night that we were able to join the rarity!

Very good quality steak, a bit quirky that it comes with a hot stone and you cook it yourself but lovely all the same, service was excellent and staff very friendly. Probably a bit expensive really for what it was £71 for 2 steak and chips and 2 cokes. Would go again as a treat, you can tell they are passionate about the quality and service.

Wonderful chateaubriad. The sauces were good, but the servings a bit small. Enjoyed the different butters. The chips were a bit on the big side and not salted. We starter with cocktails, and my only real complaint is that the food arrived much too soon. We had barely starter on our drinks, so we had to leave them to the end of the meal.

Excellent experience. We were a party of four friends and were seated in a booth style table downstairs. One of our party was celebrating her birthday and the restaurant staff gave us a complementary glass of fizz each on arrival which was a really nice touch! The concept is very good (hot stone cooking) with a mixture of butters and sauces to accompany your steak. Beware! Its gets 'shmokin' hot around the table (and in combination with other diners cooking their own meat). Three of us chose a steak cut we had not heard of before (which was a treat) and one of the party had a pizza which was huge and reported as delicious. A very nice ambience and very good experience. We had our polaroid taken in front of the famous 'mugshot' wall which was also a nice memento of a great evening. Reasonably priced, delicious cocktails, lovely staff. A great evening.

A Really wonderful evening!
Straight away it was clear that the service was going to be fantastic and we loved that the servers told us what they liked on the menu which meant that we had delicious food that we wouldn’t have chosen normally.
The atmosphere was perfect for a smart/casual evening.
Food and drink was outstanding. We had the sharer steak and loved being able to cook it to our own taste. The honey butter is incredible. The Sucker Punch cocktail is also amazing.
The price of the evening was not cheap, but it was definitely worth every penny. It was our anniversary so we were happy to part with a little more than planned.
We can’t wait to go back!

Blown away ! I booked a table for valentines day and my 1 year anniversary. We were greeted with a huge smile and two glasses of prosseco on the house and had a short walkthrough of some special cocktails and the menu.
We orderd two serlions and they were amazing ! Cooked rare we could then cover in flavored butters and seared on the hotplate provided. We then moved on to some sorbet and the fantastic cocktails !
Overall a great place for a date or group of people with very friendly staff and a very relaxed vibe.
If you get the chance or are think about visting just go !!!!
