I had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. Had the ribeye. The chunky chaps that came with it were fantastic. The restaurant was pretty quiet, but I guess that's normal for a weekday. The only thing I can fault them on is I would have preferred a thicker cut of meat, next time I be sure to ask for it.

We both had ribeye steak, possibly the worst steak I have ever had. Thin and chewy and I asked for medium but it came well done inside and burnt on the out side. This was my third visit, the first one was good, the second ok and this visit very poor, don't think I will visit again as standards appear... More

Visited on a second Groupon offer. Very friendly staff, and all very efficient. Had table upstairs, rather too near the toilets, so not ideal. Orders taken quickly for wine and food. The menu hasn't actually changed much in the 2-3 years we've been going, so maybe nice to have a new item now and again. Our party chose dough balls... More

So the old man and I decided to have a trip into town to eat Sunday lunch. Neither of us had any idea what we fancied so were a bit stuck to think of somewhere to go. After pre lunch drinks we wandered into the Highcross and plumped for 1573. We did come to this restaurant on their opening night... More

Ribeye steak served here was an absolute disgrace. It was literally 3mm thick frying steak. We will not be returning here. Ever.

Lovely steaks and wine have eaten here several times and will definitely be going back. If you like meat this place is a must.

The grill is housed in the old grammar school at Highcross with seating both upstairs (with the visible beams of the roof), downstairs and outside on the terrace (not on this visit however!). Staff are very friendly and unobtrusive. The menu is sufficiently varied to offer most diners a good choice, though the vegetarian options are limited and seem highly... More

Me and my other half came for an early valentines meal last night. We couldn't fault the service of food. The steak was the best I'd ever tasted, absolutely fantastic. We shall definitely be returning soon. Thanks for a fab night

Had heard mixed reports about the place in the past but everything was really good and the service was efficient and friendly. Had the calamari to start and we had the steak and ribs for main. Everything was well cooked and really tasty.
