Visited here this week for the first time in a while. The food was ok but nothing to make me want to visit again. At one time it was amazing now very average. I noticed there was hardly any customers where at one time it was always very full. Others must share my opinion given the number of emty tables.... More

Emily's was highly recommended to us and have been waiting to go for a while. Went tonight with my husband and daughter with high expectations . Sadly highly disappointed on all levels. Atmosphere was very strange in fact there was no atmosphere! Seemed very under staffed. Waited at least 15 minutes for a drink. Our food order was taken. The... More

So glad we tried this restaurant. The menu very helpfully explains how steaks will be cooked and ours were cooked to perfection. Good sized, excellent quality steaks. My husband is the fussiest of eaters and he didn't find a morsel of fat on it. Proper home-made chips. We had a side portion of onion rings and scampi too and they... More

As the title says - this is the 5th time we have been here and love the place! We've brought friends and family here on many occasions as we can't recommend the place enough. One year we also had Xmas dinner (6 courses) and again, it was amazing!! Party of 6 on a Saturday night and all with different size... More

First ate here many years ago when it was just the small eating area (no extension) and the food was great. Our next visit was after the extension and again, the food was great but we really didn't like the new extension and felt like we were sitting in a transport cafe and sadly, didn't return until recently. We asked... More

My partner and I love a good steak and have eaten at many steakhouses/restaurants that specialise in serving them. We thought (compared to similar establishments) Emily's was more expensive and we were pretty annoyed at being charged over £7.00 for 2 glasses of soda water each. Most restaurants will not charge for soda water and if they do it is... More

EmilyLee165, Manager at Emily's, responded to this review

I write in response to your negative review of our restaurant. I note the key upset is the overcharge on the 2 soda water amounting to over £14. I have had a look at our bills for the months of January, February and March 2017 and cannot find a bill with 2 soda water charged at £14 and over. I... More

Lovely steak cooked as I requested , proper handmade chips and onion rings , friendly service and plain but clean surroundings. Was busy on a Sunday night and lots of people commenting how nice the food was.

Had high expectations following some of the reviews but overall we were disappointed. The restaurant lacked atmosphere and the drinks and food were most definitely overpriced. Having said that the food was ok ( but no more than that!) the steaks cooked as requested and the staff were friendly.
