Steak expert indeed. This was one of the best steaks I have ever experienced. It was slow with new Covid measures being enacted in England but I'd travel from Wales again just to have another meal here. We had a party of 5 and everyone was equally impressed with the service, as well as the quality and taste of the food. I highly recommend The Bull Steak Expert.

If you like your steak, this is the place to eat. By far, the best I've ever had. Decided to skip the starter and go for the 400g 4-cut main of fillet, T-bone, rump and sirloin. You won't need a sauce. Will definitely be back again. The wine was very good too (Mad Bird Malbec 2019). Absolutely loved it.

The food is 10/10 and the service was great.
The only thing is the ambience, it is missing some food music.

Fantastic service and food. Slightly pricy but worth it to support an independent business over one of the main chains.

Fantastic meal in lovely surroundings for a table of 6 (plenty of space and never felt rushed) - food was very high quality and service was friendly and attentive - Best steak I've ever tasted - I would definately recommend I feel as though I've found a real gem :)

Wow! It was one of the best steak meals I’ve ever had. Lovely service. We choose the platter of 4 steaks and a few sides. All perfectly cooked. They adviced us not to have a starter and they were right. It was delicious!

It was our wedding anniversary (37 years) and a date night, we ended up down stairs next to a table of 20 ex students who were on a reunion party - not very romantic for us, we couldn’t hear each other speak!!
We did mention this to the staff, they didn’t seem that concerned they were just concentration on the big party, at one stage they were going to move us up stairs (which would have been lovely, as all the other couples were up there!) but this never happened!
No good will gesture either - which may have impacted on this review, but they even changed the bill as they’d forgotten a glass of wine - so disappointed and it spoilt a lovely meal!
£122 not well spent!

It was a very good dinner with friends .
Only downside was that we sat downstairs and unfortunately there was a funny smell coming from WC so we had to change table .
Quality of meat was pretty good and value for money in London prices was ok too.

First time visiting based on reading reviews and near where we were staying. Wasn’t disappointed and everything was great and the food came up hot and didn’t have to wait long either. Would recommend this boutique restaurant to anyone who likes good food, service and value for money. Will definitely book again.

Lovely little steak restaurant. Beautiful steak and sides. Wine was also top notch. Service was personal and friendly. Wine incredibly pricey but the Malbec at £39 a bottle was very good.

I have been here several times, before lockdown.
Was super reassuring to have the same experience, both the food quality and the careful, attentive service.
We even had a person in our party from Argentina….. he loved it and said it really properly represented his mother country.
