Ate here yesterday, taking full advantage of the "50% off food" January promotion booking at the restaurant. Haven't been for 5 years and unfortunately it seems that this place isn't what it once was. When we arrived for our booking, with a 2 year old, we were sat right under a loud JBL speaker. A stupid place to seat a... More

Six of us visted this weekend for a 30th Birthday having all dined at GOTA in the past. Firstly, we were disappointed to sit down fifteen minutes late. The bar area was already packed and it was a real push to hang around waiting. Once we were seated, we were given a table that really should have seated four. We... More

We were staying at the Midland nearby and fancied eating out, we came across this place and we're not disappointed. Gorgeous steak and fabulous cocktails. Great service, clean, modern decor and great atmosphere. Would definitely dine here again!

On asking for extra bread we were charged over £3!! To cap things off when checking the bill at home was disappointed to have been charged an extra £1 as a... More

Ate here on a Thursday night with family. We booked a table for 4 for 5.30pm and were seated downstairs and whilst it was initially quiet it soon filled up and became very busy. Definitely worth booking in advance. Restaurant has a great atmosphere and staff were friendly. Menu has a great choice of steaks on the menu; we had... More

Went Friday lunch. It was not busy but service was woefully slow. 20 minutes before we had to ask if we could order. Lamb was delicious. Good burger not good chips. There was a calamari in with the chips in error. Side of vegetables was a sad affair 1 piece of broccoli and 1 piece of kale and the rest... More

Lots going on. Service wasn't bad but could have been a couple of notches higher. Food was ok but it did feel like it was being churned out. Had to wait an unreasonable time to be served at the bar when we went in and to be served our main courses after our starters. Drinks are over priced.

This was awful. Hardly any staff were working; as such everything was chaotic. Wrong wine was delivered, food came out bit piece; No vegetables, steaks were cold, Starters were poor, took ages to be served and was a waste of an evening out. they seem to have gone down the route of filling the place with cheap deals, which is...

Came for dinner on a wet miserable Monday evening and was greeted and made to feel welcome by very friendly courteous staff. We enjoyed rib eye steaks, cooked exactly to our individual requirements .....delicious and the home made chips were fantastic ( diet starts tomorrow lol) . We had great service, very attentive staff and the atmosphere was buzzing. The... More
