Excellent food, service, ambience. Really happy to see the step inn taking all precautions and wiping tables and chairs after every sitting. Food and service were excellent as always.

Great experience especially with two small babies.... The staff are always so friendly and chatty, staff turnover in the Step seems to be low so always the same faces which is nice. Food is always second to none and plenty of food when it comes to value for money... Their chicken wings are a must 😍

This was our first visit since just before lockdown. It was a very pleasant experience from start to finish. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and from a covid 19 perspective, we felt very safe. The staff were obviously well trained on all matters covid related.
We had a table upstairs which was lovely and quiet and the tables were very well spaced apart. All diners are required to wear a mask until they are seated and going to and from the toilet.
After 90 minutes the waitress discreetly placed the bill on the table without making a fuss about the time. It was subtle and a great way to let us know that time was up.
Will definitely return again soon.

Every place has that table you would only use if you has no other table. Having booked a few days ahead I was surprised to be offered this table. I asked to be moved to a different table & unfortunately I had to insist & pointed out that i had booked not just randomly walked in.

Food and service were well worth the money. It loses one star as it felt a little too busy considering COVID towards the end of our meal.

3.30 ordered two steak sandwiches and two drinks place was quits which suited me. Service was very good only the two steaks were very dry and buns not toasted well enough. Maybe a one off. Will come again for dinner because it was nice the last time i had dinner.

Excellent covid policy in place. Great buzz. Felt like a bit of normality again. Food delicious. Chef takes pride in his/her work. Great team effort. I’ll definitely be back. Oh and the cocktails are a cut above the usual fare. Top marks to everyone involved.

The Step Inn is the most reliable place, you are always guaranteed excellent service and delicious food. It is definitely the most consistent restaurant I know, and I've been going there for the past few years. The staff are lovely and always welcoming. It also feels very safe during these strange times. Can't recommend the step highly enough.

I cannot wait to get back to The Step Inn for food again.
I havent been in years and thoroughly enjoyed the experience start to finish.
There isnt one thing I could fault.

The fish tacos were refreshing and tasty. I got the chicken burger as my main, I opted to have the buffalo sauce added on, and I'm delighted I did.

The staff were friendly and actually engaged in a bit of banter throughout, which was so nice to experience especially during these trying times.

I would highly recommend going, and can't wait to go back.

This is the third time I have been to the Step Inn and all visits have been extremely pleasant. The staff are excellent and the food is to die for.
The staff are very well trained in Covid procedures so you feel secure.
I definitely will be back and bring some family members with me.

Was not happy that guests were allowed to walk in/ left along with visits to bathrooms without wearing masks. It clearly states on the website masks should be worn at all times unless when seated at your table.
The restaurant had gone to a lot of trouble to comply with the required regulations but fell down at the above. Instead of feeling relaxed I was nervous & would be slow to return because of this. This is such a pity as the food & service were excellent.
