We received a text message cancelling our table 3 hours before reservation. Apparently this was due to "unforeseen circumstances" but also due to "an ongoing issue". I feel cancelling at such short notice would have been more polite to do by phone call rather than text.
As there is an "ongoing issue" which appears to have been a problem on various other occasions according to social media posts, I will not be rushing to rebook in case it occurs again at the last minute.

Social distanced dining, smaller menu but still fab food. Sirloin steak asked for well done came pink but sorted without an issue. Cheese crush burger with loaded fries were really nice lots of flavour washed down with a rose wine. Had the Dutch baby dessert which we’d had previously and very good and enough for two. Looking forward to next time

Staff were friendly, the decor is lovely and modern.
Good choice of burgers, which were excellent and the cocktails were fab.
Very good value for money and will definitely return.

The quality and presentation of the food was very poor overall . Scallops tasted like fried in smoked bacon lardons and I don’t eat pork served with old stale bread , but assured it was fresh and a ‘ different’ type focaccia! I know stale bread when I eat it! Steak montaditos served on baguette bread and not chargrilled ciabatta , no fish dish as advertised, vegan steak was inedible and returned to kitchen and rightly removed from the bill , skin on fries were not skin on and they were luke warm . Service was slow but friendly and courteous , staff adhered to distancing and cleaning advice, it’s a shame as it’s a lovely looking place , good ambiance but food really lets it down and as a treat meal for first night out after lockdown it was a big disappointment and sadly as locals wanting local businesses to do well , we won’t be returning.

It felt like a fairly reasonable steak house that I did not personally find remarkable for the quality of either it's menu or the quality of it's food, The service was pleasant enough but rather slow - it took almost 45 minutes for our starter to arrive and the main course also took its time to appear. It was ok, but I am afraid did not compare with our other dining experiences in the week.

We had lovely meal, mine was perfect and my husband's only disappointment was his hummus which was quite thick and watery. The cocktails were gorgeous. The restaurant has a lovely feel to it. The decor is beautiful and staff are lovely. A perfect night out. Glad we have found this restaurant we will be back. Thank you.

Nice place but sadly a 50 minute wait for just mains when it wasn't that busy over shadowed our experience. With the wait we hoped the food would be amazing and sadly it was very average but on the other hand it was reasonably priced so I guess you get for what you pay. The plates were cold and therefore the food went cold pretty quick. Side fries were cold and onion rings were at a fine line of being raw in the middle. Nice decor and nice atmosphere though

We went the day after Valentine’s Day & were surprised to find there was a fixed menu. We didn’t know this when we booked. We both had the cheese fondue to start & it was amazing. We ordered the tomahawk steak to share. We asked for it to be cooked medium. When the waiter was carving he commented on the fact that ours was a bigger/deeper cut. Once carved it became obvious that due to the size it was cooked medium/rare. At this point it was too late to send back. Unfortunately we found the cut quite fatty, so won’t be having this again. A disappointment considering the price. Overall the staff were very attentive & we enjoyed the sauces & sides. We will return

The scallops were slightly underdone, but we’re still good.The steak was great, the Parmesan fries just needed Parmesan and the cocktails were fantastic. I’d go back again. 👍

I came here with my partner for a meal the other day and was pleasantly surprised by the decor of the place and the friendly greetings from the staff.
We ordered Starters mains and desserts all of which were amazing, locally sourced and cooked with passion :)
Would highly recommend coming here!

I came in for a quick bit of brunch on the 19th, i had the beef brisket flatbread with horseradish and i could not fault the food, at all. The taste, the quality of produce and the value for money we're brilliant. The staff were friendly and helpful and dealt with any question that i had at the time. I would definitely reccomend to everyone and i will be returning.

Amazing little place, food was absolutely gorgeous we had the sharing tomahawk steak and was superbly served alongside the extremely tasty sides. The dessert was just lush also.
The place is a hidden gem that excites the taste and the eye from the design of the restaurant to the details of the crockery it is a truly amazing experience.
Staff was extremely helpful and nice and we had the head chef even coming to the table to have a nice friendly chat.
Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our experience. Friendly, helpful staff, relaxing ambiance and lovely food. My steak was perfectly cooked and the Parmesan fries were a tasty accompaniment and my partner raved about his burger. Will definitely be booking again.

Great food, service etc. We went at a very quiet time, so the ambience wasn’t what it could be. Steaks are pricey, but then I did have the Tomahawk (40oz, £70) and fairly average taste, but I’m a steak fan so even average has me happy. Will come again.

Myself and 4 friends had dinner here at Walton's last night, we had a wonderful evening - honestly couldn't fault it. Beautiful surroundings especially the xmas decor. Food was great, definitely recommend the artisan cocktails, great wine list and craft beers, try the tea menu - some really interesting ones. Service was relaxed, friendly and really helpful. Thank you for a lovely evening.

The menu choice was somewhat limited. The starters were good but the Plaice fish main, which was a special, was extremely small. It wouldn't have made an adequate starter let alone a main course. As we were with new friends we didn't like to complain but frankly these special mains were a complete rip off and outrageously small - we feel entitled to a refund!

Anniversary meal. We chose the red snapper special with noodles and the vegan steak (mushroom, beetroot and chickpeas) with coleslaw and sweet potato fries. Excellent food, really tasty ( only downside the coleslaw needed chopping smaller). The White Zinfandel rose was lovely!
For dessert Eton mess and Dutch baby with coconut and lime gelato.
Totally picked the right food .
Definitely recommend and the staff were really pleasant too...
Can't wait to go back.....

Me and my boyfriend came here the other night for the first time after hearing so many good reviews!
We both ordered a steak and mine was okay and the chips wear delicious however my boyfriends steak was really poor there was 90% fat in his steak and wasn’t cooked properly... however the service was amazing and the restaurant inside was beautiful just disappointed in the steak! :)

I must deeply apologise for the quality of the steak, I can definitively confirm that the appropriate measures are now being implemented to make sure all of our steaks are cooked to perfection and are of the highest quality beforehand. If you would like to visit again, we will be more than happy to show you how we changed what we do taking your feedback into consideration.

Overall it was a forgetful evening. Lovely room but felt cold and Ambience was off for sure as it was too quiet. I understand it's newly reopened but the service was slow and the food too too long to arrive. We were 4 people and sat 2.5 hours for 2 courses and it wasn't busy. When food did arrive it was good but one prawn dish overcooked. Hopefully teething problems but I won't rush back.
