“Tough Steak”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I had a Rib Eye for about £30 in this restaurant and was not impressed. The steak was tough. We were a party of 8. Service was great. Wine was excellent. Side dishes fantastic (mushrooms with blue cheese were great), didnt like the Bone Marrow (over-rated in my view). Pricey. Small and friendly.

“Very good food and service”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

With no reservation we turned up for a weekday lunch pretty late and were seated immediately. Menu was comprehensive, and the wine list was very reasonably priced. Service was excellent, and the low number of diners at that time meant it was very personalised. We both opted for the squid, lamb with a side of bacon vegetables and a chocolate brownie for desert, and all of it was well cooked with large portions. Will be back, highly recommended.

“Top Notch Meal”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Saturday night and we we're fortunate enough to secure a late booking at the Grill. As always we were greeted with a friendly and very welcoming member of staff, who quickly showed us to our table.

The choice of nibbles selected, prior to ordering, we're fresh and quickly delivered. All the time our waitress was attentive without becoming over bearing, a balancing act often missed by some.

Again when ordering our meal the maître de was very helpful in describing our queries and thus assisting in the choice. We chose the 'sharing fish platter' as a starter which was simply superb, although my partner thought perhaps a little too much garlic with the squid. The main courses of steak and chicken were both perfectly cooked and presented, and to be fair they were both good sized portions.

A bottle of bubbles helped wash things down, remarkably good value here as we'll. all in all another very enjoyable meal, nothing but praise for all concerned

We'll done

“Anthony have you been here recently?”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

I feel compelled to write this review I booked this restaurant as a Birthday treat for my husband on Thursday evening We chose to sit away from other diners as the tables are so close together, After waiting the waitress who was totally void of charm or customer service took our order The food was very good except my husbands steak was overcooked medium rare which was only tinged with pink? I have a feeling the order may have been wrongly communicated to the chef. After the abysmal service continued the smell from the cloakrooms started and there was no one to ask about it as the staff were laying up(noisily)when we did tell the waitress she said nothing but disappeared in to the cloakrooms.
She gave us the expensive bill 12% service charge She gave my husband his jacket and disappeared we saw ourselves out The Chef shouted hope you had a good time?
I have never written a review before but feel so upset by this experience, If you save up to visit a celebrated chefs restaurant you do not expect this inadequacy . I really would love a response.
