I've never written a review before but had to share the excellent experience we had last night at Monroe's. We pre-booked by email and right from the start we felt welcomed by the manager. We arrived at the venue which being a Tuesday was quiet which was perfect for us as we were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
When a restaurant/bar is not very busy you often are ignored by staff who talk among themselves but at Monroe's it couldn't be further from the truth. We were welcomed when we came in and manager remembered it was our anniversary, its personal touches like this that make all the difference.
We went straight to the bar to samples some of their cocktails. I love a cocktail but normally find them a little pricey and watered down, the cocktails here are very reasonably priced and there's certainly no skimping on the quality or quantity of each cocktail.
The Barman is very friendly and happy to discuss all the cocktails with you and offer advice if you're not sure which you fancy, you get a real feeling of his passion for the cocktails which is not surprising as he created some of them.
We were able to pre-order our meal from downstairs and be called up as soon as it was ready which was a nice touch.
I ordered the fillet steak and my husband ordered the rib-eye, I'm normally wary of ordering steak at a restaurant as I've had so many tough or poorly cooked steaks. Our steaks were both obviously quality bits of meat and were cooked to perfection, I had my steak cooked medium and it melted in my mouth. The steaks came with the most amazing chips. I'm not a chips lover but I just couldn't resist and I even managed to get my husband to eat a fair amount of the accompanying spinach which was cooked beautifully.
The restaurant is lovely upstairs and the restaurant manager is attentive whilst also allowing you to eat your meal in peace.
As we went on a Tuesday the meals were buy one get one free which is a bargain, however, had we gone on a different night the meals were definitely worth the full price.
I couldn't recommend this restaurant more, we had a wonderful evening and were made to feel very special. We will return and tell all our friends. Thank you.
