Visited here for a late meal with my partner. No disabled access because the restaraunt is upstairs. Steak was great, my partner had diane which was made with lots of tomatoes (not sure if that's common in south Wales) and I asked for the garlic, which was just overloaded on the garlic butter, but as a garlic lover this was...

Booked a table here for after the rugby a month in advance and was told no problems. Turned up and was told that there were no tables open and they didn't take bookings, even showed the management a confirmation email. After this the lady said that she was to busy to deal with the situation. We did the obvious and... More

Waited for over an hour and a half. Think we lost a friend who died whilst waiting. If you ever think of eating here for heavens sake go and find somewhere else. Table next to us gave up and we should have followed ! Must be the must be the worst steam house on the planet.

After a drunken night out my friends and I decided to grab a bite to eat! Rather than the same old chippy lane grub, thought a steak was in order! I had a rump steak ask for rare to medium came a bit to cooked for my liking (still edible though) however that was not a massive problem! Will definitely... More

We booked the restaurant for early evening as we had young children coming, which was great as we were the only people in the restaurant to begin with and we were a large party of nearly 20. The food was lovely, very tasty and very reasonable. We did have one issue in that some of the chips were lukewarm but... More

Went to Charlstons for steak. Spent £68 up front. I was served very mediocre gristly meat and the "Diane sauce" was nout more than tinned soup with mushrooms chucked in. There was also some kind of tomato concoction bubbling and drying out on the edge of my skillet, ketchup mixed with something. Undeniable! This again proved that the chef cannot... More
