Wonderful building, very professional staff. Only had drinks but a very unique place. We went twice, we enjoyed it so much & intend to have a meal there when we return

“The only reason for 3* is the venue”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

When you eat at the Dome you wonder why they call themselves a grill house (room in their words) as they only have one beef dish which is the worst steak I had. Service is average and the food doesn't feel locally sourced - as you really can't grill an Angus steak that badly.

“What a popular place...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Tried to book a table over the festive period but we were told they don't take bookings whilst the Christmas decorations are up...what difference that makes, I don't know.
Anyway, joined the queue which was out the door as the doorman wouldn't let us in, despite us not wanting to dine in the main restaurant. We were just about to leave when a girl came out asking if anyone was just after a lighter lunch, which we were, and were swiftly taken inside and into the club room. ( where we originally wanted to go). Slightly annoying.

The food itself was nice, but not spectacular. I'd visit again if I was passing, but wouldn't go out my way.
