Critic's review

Greg Landman

Food
The thing about chains is that individual restaurants sometimes do not measure up to the standard the others set. This one is a leader in its field and never ceases to set the bar. Obviously the thing to eat is meat, but the vast menu offers many – and sometimes unusual – options. For instance: the blue cheese snails, giant baked mushrooms in Napolitana sauce and topped with cheese, and the avocado and prawn cocktail (very retro) will always have their devotees.

The venison carpaccio is very light and the grilled prawns are another delicious way to get into the mood. Eight deliciously fresh salads make a meal in themselves. Various cuts of steaks include excellent prime rib, fillet on the bone and pork ribs, but the piece de resistance is their famous chateaubriand – flamed at the table – which does make people sit up and take notice. You can have fillet topped with snails, chicken livers or mushrooms if you like.

Seafood includes very good calamari done various ways and fresh line fish and the chicken dishes include an excellent cordon bleu version. The knockout dessert is the crème brûlée, silky and rich as it should be.

Drinks
Excellent wine list, with something to suit most tastes and pockets.

Service
Smooth and friendly even when things are busy.

Ambience
This is not your usual steak house but rather a grill room of note. Easy chairs and some great areas to unwind in signal a degree of sophistication, which obviously appeals greatly to the clientele. Cosy when need be and a nice ambivalent indoor/outdoor feel when summer rolls round.

And...
Bookings are essential, especially at busy times.
