Steak
Dear guests,

temper is a unique barbecue, steak and open fire pit restaurant where we cook everything in front of your eyes using only wood and charcoal in huge 4.5m long fire pit in the middle of the room.

We only use the best produce available and source our meat from local farms and butcher it all ourselves in house.

We serve our meats alongside tacos, parathas, made in house and mezcal cocktails.

Each week we have our Sunday Roast that is perfect for a table of 2 or 10 with it's sharing style platter.

The food came out within 3 minutes of ordering and it was freezing cold. Genuinely, no exaggeration, it was cold. We asked for some hot gravy to heat it up and we were brought some cold gravy. We eventually managed to get someone’s attention again and asked for some piping hot gravy for our cold food, and some more cold gravy was brought over. We eventually gave up and ate our cold food. I have no doubt the food would have been delicious but nobody wants a cold roast dinner. Why did nobody offer to heat up our food for us after we complained three times?!

The service was also atrocious. We were left in the corner, no one came to check it the food was ok and getting the staff’s attention was nearly impossible. Even getting our bill at the end took 20 minutes and they had the cheek to add on a 12.5% service charge. Some of the staff could do with another period on furlough.

Overall, a very poor experience and I expected much better given the reviews and the price.

Staff made you feel like cattle.

As soon as we sat down, we were rushed to order so that they can take the table back. This pressure was made throughout the meal.

Food was Ok and the cocktails were mediocre.

We won't go again.

Food portions are SO SMALL for what they charge, we ordered a 33 £ T Bone witch didn’t even come with chips or any side, so you order the side of Chips for 4 £ and the size its just ridiculous, you end up paying almost 10 pounds for two mini portion of chips.. because it’s not enough for 2. We paid over 100 pounds for a course of meat to share, two tacos, that literally were gone in two bites, and two glasses of wine. Not worth the money. We really wanted to have a good meat meal, but not paying what we paid for what we got in exchange.

Great food, no truffle fries on the menu anymore, make you vacate your table in an hour. 15min warning for dessert order, payment and to drink half a bottle of wine left a sour note

Ordered beef nachos= nice
Wings= expensive but dry but sauce on it was nice.
Cheeseburger taco = dry and pretty tasteless.
Beef skewers= not actually skewers but mince aka a kebab, dense and first one super dry, and loaded with salty sauce balance. 1st impressions bad. Based on experience wouldn't recommend.
Saw a YouTube video of eaters where there was plenty of meat all over the place, we saw just some pork and possibly beef.

No lamb available at time..

Felt like we were essentially sold aged mincemeat, I guess covid has really lowered customers from coming so in order to save on costs they don't bother ordering whole cuts anymore.... I also have 300 quids worth of vouchers, which I don't think I will use till I guess business picks up because what was displayed and served was well below par. If I could get a refund on the vouchers I would... Because I don't see them returning to glory anytime soon.

It works out almost £35 per head, and in my honest to God opinion is way too much for what they offer. I could've gone to a Brazilian Rodizio and have a better experience, for a lesser price.

At this point I am giving a benefit of doubt because I know they can do better.

I am hoping my next visit will be better.

Also I feel they should somehow let people know what meats are available on the day without having to call up in advance... I mean its 2020, its should be difficult.

I mean I wanted goat, beef lamb, none of which were available outside of steak cuts.

The Sunday roast wasn’t good. Cold and stingy portion. There is a guy standing in the open kitchen area measuring the meet to make sure is exactly 200 grams! He cut the meat so thinly and put it on the counter. Therefore, food arrives cold and it doesn’t look good. The smoky meat taste better but it is quite a fatty cut. If you order the sharing meat platter the garnish is extra £5 per person. No problem with that if the parsnips are properly roasted and the gravy was tasty. Food is really mediocre and I had much better Sunday roast in the pub around the corner.
I never make a complaint in any restaurant as I believe the best thing is not to go back. However, at the end of my meal a waitress asked how was my food and I pointed out at the fat on my plate and uncooked parsnip and explained why I didn’t like the food. She left and another waiter came and asked the same question and I politely said the same thing and I added that’s not an issue and I have no intention of making a big deal of it and the only reason I provide a feedback is because they asked. He showed my such an attitude which was unbelievable!!! I wondered what was the point of asking my opinion about the food. I paid the bill and survice and I thought I wont be back to Temper ever again and if anyone asks me I would say avoid it.

The service was amazing, the staff was very friendly and eager to help. Although there were certain plates that we couldn’t have due to shortage of products, the waiter recommended other similar ones that filled in for what we wanted. Great food, lovely atmosphere. Totally visiting again!

Food was absolutely gorgeous!! Also lovely venue. The waiter could have been more helpful (ie we ordered 6 plates of food between 6 people and he only told us that wouldn’t be enough because we asked) but apart from that had a fantastic time

Great restaurant, lovely food and the vibe was great - the service started really well but then as the bar got busier we seemed slightly forgotten about, it took quite a while to get someone’s attention to order desert and when we finally did they only brought over one of the cookies when we ordered two... which was really sad because the cookie was so good!!!

The roasts were great, we had smoked goat and roast beef. We were recommended the cookie dessert, and I would 100% recommend this too!

We will come back with more people to try the lamb to share for sure.

Thought it was rather pricy for what we got . Everything was served together on a platter so no starter main course etc . The cheese burger was tasty though .. bit slow to serve the drinks and the cosmopolitan didn’t taste as if it had any Alcohol in it . Also very small glasses so didn’t last long as most of it was ice .very busy in there

What an experience we had! Food was delicious, cocktails and wine were amazing. Could not fault the service, Francesco was great at his job and his recommendations were spot on. Our first ever espresso martinis were something we'll never forget. Can't wait to go back.

Was a nice but small menu. I had the Pork dish which I had to send back because half the dish was fat. I got a new dish when everyone else I was eating had finished. The staff was really good and helpful. The starters were really nice.

The food was ridiculously bland - it looked much better than it tasted. The chicken wasn’t fresh either. Most items required salt, however the atmosphere and mocktail was lovely!

Went for the Sunday roast. We had beef rump and smoked goat which were both incredibly tasty. So much rich smoky flavour. A bit pricey but worth it.
The pork and cheeseburger taco starters are a must!
They do a really nice organic Malbec too. Goes with the food perfectly

Wow is all I can say! We were seated around the kitchen (in my eyes the best seats) and got to see all the action in front of our eyes. The staff were very friendly and very attentive. The food was amazing and you are definitely getting value for money. I would most definitely return and recommend to my friends.
