We went last night during a short trip to Bristol. I love the concept of hot stone cooking, which means that your steak is cooked exactly how you want. My husband and I shared an enormous Chateaubriand that came with a selection of flavoured butters and sauces, plus triple cooked chips and a rocket salad. Everything was included in the £70 price, which I think was excellent value. The steak was flavoursome and meltingly tender, and accompanied by a lovely bottle of Merlot.

The staff and especially the owner-manager were really friendly and attentive. When he spotted that our stone had got a bit cool, he immediately swapped it for a fresh hot one. He was also really proud of the provenance of his food, and really supportive of local producers. We finished with local ice cream - the scoop of peanut butter and pretzel was outstanding!

The place felt like it had been around forever, it had that ‘local institution’ vibe, so we were really surprised when he told us that they had only been open for eight months.

This will be a place to visit again next time we come.

Amazing food. Best steak I've ever had. Not sure I can go back to "standard" steak any more. I've been spoilt. Wasn't keen on the honey butter they recommended. Otherwise everything was great. Nice cocktails too.

Amazing place, staff friendly and knowledgeable and the steaks are fantastic. Really clever idea of being able to cook them to your liking on the lava stone but the produce and pre-cooking in a water-bath makes the taste. Would really recommend to any meat lover.

Very lovely welcome and kept well informed on the sharing steak couldn’t fault the staff or the food only reason for markdown was as we had went to Pasture the week before and they just slightly trumped you on the steak itself. Still 9.5/10 will definitely visit again.

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.
