Went with my wife for her Birthday, the food was amazing we had the Chateuebriand! Best tasting steak I have ever had!
Wasn't the easiest place to find and because the music level is quite high everyone is talking loudly to be heard so not the most romantic

Starters were excellent. My wife enjoyed her winter vegetable casserole and my steak was perfectly cooked. However the hand cooked chips and onion rings were similar to frozen ones. My wife enjoyed her sweet. I ordered coffee and port to be served at the same time but it took almost twenty minutes after my wife was served to arrive.
In terms of service we found that the most disappointing aspect of our visit. We were eventually given delicious complimentary bread only a couple of minutes before our starters arrived. Our main courses arrived timeously but thereafter the waiting staff seemed to lose interest. As well as the coffee issue we couldn't get anyone to bring us the bill and when eventually we did get it no one came to process it despite my making eye contact with a couple of waiting staff. I took it to the bar and a very pleasant barman, after being told that the waiting staff appeared to have lost interest, indicated to me that it wasn't the first time he had heard that.
The bottom line was that if there had been someone obviously managing the staff things would have been much improved.

Service was good the only thing I would say the young lady serves us was very good.
The gentleman who also serviced us was a bit moody which took an edge of the meal
When other customers arrived he was all over them and chatting with them

Went here to celebrate a special birthday. Food, staff etc were all amazing!!! My only negative would be the toilets. 2 out of the 4 were blocked and not very nice at all. Apart from that fabulous day out and will definitely go back!!

This was my 3rd visit to The Grill Room using a voucher each time. The food was good but I felt the menu this time was poor with limited choice. With 3 out of 4 starters being a vegetable choice and the 4th being fish at a supplement. One more meat option on both starters and main would have better suited.

Service was great, lovely surroundings. Food was ok, vegetable casserole tasted like vegetable soup. Had to get something to eat after we left, shouldn’t have too after 2 courses. I felt more full after the afternoon tea & enjoyed it more than this deal. Won’t be back

We all had the lunch menu and it was lovely. The only thing was the noise. We have been here before on a week day but as it was Saturday it was quite noisy. We struggled to have a conversation. All in all it was good and would recommend.

On the basis of my last visit - no, wouldn't recommend. As a previous member of 29 the Grill Room was always a favourite booking. However, service was very poor. Had to request water for table. Had to request empty glasses be removed. No offer of complimentary bread as is customary. An hour's wait in between courses (last weekend of January so restaurant was quiet, no excuse). Thankfully we were dining from the 2 for £29 deal otherwise would have complained. Noise level of jazz music was far too loud - couldn't hear conversation across our 'wonky' table - glasses sliding towards one side. Fish of the day not as described - 'run out of haddock'?? Overall, very disappointed in visit.

Dreadful service. Asked for a wine list, waiter brought it, but nobody ever came back to see if we wanted wine. Finished meal, asked how it was, said not good. No follow up question, just a shrug. Well done, guys, not even worth making a complaint - just never going back.

Never had a bad meal there. Always a pleasant experience.
Our waiter, from NI was an exemplar in customer service.
My only grouch was the wine list could have been presented a little earlier.
Great staff overall.

Service was slow, however it was busy so could understand that, however, purchased a bottle of wine that was awful and clearly off, no offer of a replacement or refund, poor customer service overall and left not wanting to go back and wouldn’t recommend.
