I visited Emily's for the first time on Saturday night. I have been wanting to go for a long time and finally got round to it - as the wife treated me to a lovely steak for my birthday. The venue is slightly small and probably could do with some decoration in places. We had a small area to eat... More

What a fantastic time. Food unbelievable and service great .This was the first visit for me but it won't be the last. A small but friendly place that I just can't praise enough. Everyone had a great time .The only problem I had was deciding what to order. It was all so good.

Absolutely delicious food, huge portions and very good value. Service second to none and drinks not terribly overpriced. I'll definitely be returning.

I have visited Emily's quite a few times and decided to have Christmas Dinner there with some friends. As always the food was excellent, it was a six course dinner and I had opted for the 32oz Aberdeen Angus rump steak which was cooked to perfection. You are always made welcome and unlike other restaurants the staff are never in... More

We remember your visit very well as the incident was unforgettable. You arrived very late at 9.23pm (according to our CCTV) and your party were very merry from drinking. Your party did order four fillet steaks but ordered with 2 medium rare, one medium and one medium well. Further, you did not mention, you demanded free mushrooms, and free grilled... More

We went for a meal with gluten intolerant partner. The owner took the time to identify herself and to ask who was had the intolerance! We ordered a mixture of burgers, steak and fish and chips. Everything cooked perfectly, small family run atmosphere. The owner has a wonderful sense of humour; seems to "read" her customers and pitches her response... More
