the main thing letting it down was very slow service, when the staff came to the table they were very pleasant but everything took a long time coming even for a Wednesday night there seemed quite a few tables full, so is obviously popular, nice ambience, friendly staff good food just the speed let it down a bit. sorry.

Took 45 minutes just to get drinks on our table then an hour later our mains came out before our starters so then had to wait even longer for our starters. Food was ok but service and organisation was terrible. Added 10% service charge to the bill and then asked on the card reader if you wanted to add tip on top of it. Very poor

Great food and great atmosphere. This restaurant is so right yet Hay & Straw is so wrong even though it’s same owners

I can heartily recommend the chateaubriand at 46 for two including veg and a wonderful peppercorn sauce. The wines are good quality and reasonable for the quality. Never managed to find room for a dessert but they do look good from what I have seen of other diners choices. Never had a bad meal here!

Food usually good but poor tonight. Ordered chateaunriand which is usually fabulous and plentiful but tonight was bit chewy and not enough for 2 people. Very disappointed. Staff great as always but i tbink overpriced especially wine. Other options in town offer better value for money.

Lovely food, ambience and value for money. A real credit to the hard work of the staff. Lacked a personal feel but given there is nothing in East Grinstead which is comparable, I would definitely visit again

Nice food along with good service. I do think that the starters are priced too high compared to the main meals and pizzas. Otherwise it was a nice evening all round and would return to this restaurant.

Food was not anywhere the quality we expected. The pizza could not be called a pizza, more like a pancake base, and the arancini were an absolute joke.

I would recommend but they need to reconsider their Prosecco night offer.
I went with my partner and I had a pizza and he had dirty beef from the main menu. Now I understand that you get a bottomless Prosecco if you order from the main menu. My partner wanted to have a beer followed by a glass or two of red wine and I was happy with a Prosecco. We were told we can’t have the offer and I will have to pay for the Prosecco because I am not having the main. The fact is, they would have earned more money out of us by letting use the free Prosecco for me and my partner would have ordered beer and wine with his beef.
I think If you have offers on, make sure you don’t upset your customers by silly rules! It actually created the opposite effect and we did not enjoy the whole experience. Won’t be back for The bottomless Prosecco night!
Staff are lovely but would be great if the bottomless Prosecco is offered, then it is actually offered, not forgotten about!

Steaks lovely as usual. Very poor selection of starters, 2 to be precise, unless you count bread or olives. Nice atmosphere and good service

We went there on a day when there were just a few customers.
The attention we had from the pleasant waitress was excellent and nothing was too much bother.
I would advise any meat eater to try the menu. It is really good.
We do not frequent East Grinstead often but I would not hesitate to return to this place again.
Good luck to the company, you deserve it.

Service was poor and gave up trying to ask for condiments, none were offered and no dressing on my salad. Had to send the steak back as so undercooked and still very underdone. Ambience was good though ! I’d try it again as definitely had potential, just felt ignored.

The food was good. The service was very friendly but a little slow.
And im always happy to pay a tip but when a restaurant automatically adds a service change for a table of just 2 when they havent done much i am very offended. Probably wont go back.

Amazing food and service, we enjoyed our evening here and there was no rush to leave the table after we finished eating, we stayed on to have cocktails. Lovely atmosphere, we had a lovely evening.
The steak was delicious and perfectly cooked!

Visited saturday night and the place was full. With 4 of us on one of the tables in the passage way it was a tad cosy. I can see why all the staff are stick thin!
The food, sharing platter (rib of beef) and the sharing chateaux briand were fab. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. The noise level made it difficult to talk

Good food just thought the serving could be a little larger for the price that is charged.
Quite noisy, but good atmosphere, maybe not for a couple who want a quiet conversation.

First time eating here and we were very Impressed. Went for a family meal and plenty of options for the children. We had the Chateaubriand sharing steak off the specials which was cooked to perfection medium rare as we requested. The portions sizes were all generous and the waiting staff were on the ball and very helpful.
