Meeting with friends for a joint birthday celebration meal, we visited this Beefeater for the first time and was very impressed by the outside & inside presentation and layout. The menu was adequate and a mixture of meals to suit anyone. Portions matched the prices. While we had to wait a while on our food it was cooked exactly as... More

A dinner of steak, fries, and side salad was absolutely scrumptious. I'm not a steak fan, but rib eye steak, with peppercorn sauce was a hit for both of us. The bill had 40% off with a voucher. The best meal I've had in ages. The surroundings were lovely to sit in. And the staff were attentive and friendly. I... More

The steaks make beefeater restaurants worth a visit, the staff make this particular beefeater worth a repeat visit. Food is always done just right, you rarely wait long for it, and the staff are always well presented, friendly and attentive, without being "in your face"

We finished late, but no-one rushed us, the manager came over to chat. We were... More

We booked a table for 8 for our little girls birthday. They provided balloons and banners without me even having to ask. The service by our waiter, Stephen, was excellent. The food was fantastic and we couldn't fault it at all. Will definitely be back!

Went today to celebrate my Mothers birthday. It was mega quiet but we were served quickly by the cheerful staff. Food wasn't that great. We ordered fish & chips. Who leaves the skin on fish before frying?? The batter was beyond crunchy & greasy. The triple fried chips? Is that a joke. If these chips had been fried for longet... More

Just like every other beefeater establishment. Usual fayre. Good range of beers, wines and spirits. Good for families and couples. Worthwhile looking for the special offers if you want to save a few quid!
