Lovely meal as usual. The sea bass was amazing and the steak cooked on the stone satisfied the husband.

Early sitting rushed a bit by staff, had a voucher, good job , the bill was very expensive for good but not outstanding food. Cost prohibitive.

Been quite a few times but the last time wasnt great at all
Staff are lovely but slow at taking your drinks order.
Waited too long from starters to mains.but again not a deal breaker.
Out comes the steak..I ordered a 16 or ribeye and my daughter a 10 or ribeye.
Mine medium rare and the 10 oz rare.
When my steak arrived it was lovely..my daughters was a total rubbish
Her steak was over cooked and so thin
.where mine was thick and juicy
I told the waitress and she said she would have another cooked and that we could take it home as we had been there ages.after going to the chef he said he wouldn't cook one to take away and took 15% off the steak which was £2 ish.
Very poor service was disappointed as I'd been many times .
My daughter didn't complain it was me as she hates fuss.
The two steaks being totally different wasnt acceptable..the chef said it was because they were different cuts of ribeye??
I thought ribeye was ribeye but no conisour
So in all there were 2 other tables who had complained but was only offered a apology..
Poor customer service.

Great steaks on Lava stones. This lets you cook your steak to your taste. Expensive for a fillet but good quality. Service good and friendly. A bit pricey overall. Will try again.

Family meal.
Poor quality steaks, cooked badly. T bones over cooked. Fillet undercooked.
Coleslaw was disgusting came from a poor quality catering tub.
Blue cheese sauce had no blue cheese.
Restaurant stank of smoke from the hot cooking stones.

great service and steaks my only comment. We were both disappointed with no actual vegetables that come with our meal. Yes you could have them as a extra but the price you pay we would have had expected peas or some vegetable source.
we would come back again but only on special occasions for 2 main course meals no starters and no deserts and 2 juices nearly £45.00 bit pricey.

Fantastic food at a reasonable price representative of the quality.
Proper steak cooked in a proper way, delicious.
Try cooking yourself on a lava stone for a bit of added panache!
Have been before and will go again. Perfect for a special occasion.

Probably quite one of the better restaurants in Chesterfield. Decor not really to my taste, a bit beauty parlour boudoir wish for my taste with bit of Thai granny's lighting thrown in . Starters were good and different but I chose rib eye steak , well cooked but texture and shape of rump and lacking in flavour. Bernaise was needed. Chips were good ,other accompaniments a bit underwhelming. Good cocktail . No dessert required. Not cheap but staff were very friendly and efficient.

We visited for Mother’s Day and we were nicely surprised that the restaurant was all decorated with balloons to celebrate the special occasions. Both my mum and mother in law loved it.

Good food and lovely company. The only complaint I would have is the baby change facilities are very poor just a chair with a mat on it which is bigger than the chair. A little dangerous I think. Invest in a change table

Steaks were over cooked, items in bill we had not had, place was filled with smoke from people cooking at their table, waiting staff were far too quick clearing plates and tried to clear my main while I was still eating, had to wait 30 mins after being sat with no food or drink to see if we would like anything else even though there was more than sufficient staff, dirty glasses all over side of bar etc etc! Was expecting much more than this, wish I’d stayed at home and cooked a steak myself.

Everything was really great and the place has a really good feel & atmosphere, but the room seems to have a kind of echoey resonance which makes it tricky to hear people because of the sounds from other tables bouncing around. Maybe it was where we were sat in middle of room. It didn't spoil our meal the food was lovely and plenty of it.

Really enjoyed our meal. Lovely staff, great choice of food/drinks at a reasonable price.
The only thing I think they need to look at changing is the choice of background music, some of the songs that came on were not appropriate to the setting and verged on cheesy.

Great host, fantastic food and modern immaculate rooms. Stayed on a Saturday night we could hear noise from the bar but it wasn't loud and we quickly fell asleep on our super comfy bed. I would definitely stay again but if I was being super picky here are the downsides.

There are no kettles/tea making kit in the rooms, the breakfast area is just outside the bedrooms and there is a kettle there but we didn't feel we could go out late at night or early in the morning to make a cuppa in our PJ's due to the noise we would make, the coffe maker is very noisy, Mum really wanted a cup of tea at 4am. There is a breakfast bar in this area but you can't really sit there to eat as the toaster/cereals etc is laid out on it so we had to eat in our rooms. Breakfast was really good though.

We had to leave via the fire escape the next morning as the main door to the bar area was still locked, this is also used as easy access from the car park and a way to get to your room without going through the bar at night. We could have called to ask the door to be opened but seemed a lot of effort. Fire escape wouldn't normally bother us and was great for getting the luggage in but we had a 90 year old with us, she managed ok but had I realised I would have made arrangements for the bar door to be opened. That said we loved the place.
