Wonderful restaurant. Came here for my 21st Birthday and been quite a few times inbetween. The décor is a little tired but the food more than makes up for it!! Lots of choice and the food is beautiful.

Good food at good prices. As probably said b others, it looks very old fashioned inside and could do with bringing into 2017 in terms of decor, but the food remains good and my steak was fantastic. I would return.

I'm not from around the area and was first brought here by my boyfriend. I loved the traditional ambiance of the restaurant and the atmosphere is cosy and homely. The food is reasonably priced and very tasty - especially the steak. Make sure you go on an empty stomach and enjoy the traditional puddings - takes me back to when... More

Following a leak and repair work .....rest assured the original 1970's decor has been re-instated!. Its business as usual, good solid reliable English menu cooked as you like it. Everything always seems to be guaranteed in terms of what you get, how it is presented and the service!. I just have to opt for the terrific Garlic Breaded Mushrooms and... More

The food was nice very quick in bringing the food to the table. The Christmas menu was good and the choice for starters was limited but the turkey roast was great

We had been to the Parish Church Carol Service so we looked a local Town Centre restaurant and The Charcoal Grill was a very good choice. The food was superb, we chose a fillet steak with home made chips, yet again we where not disappointed. The Manager and staff where very accommodating especially Graham and Kath. Recently decorated this restaurant... More
