Look the restaurant is busy and the vibe is good it's a good place to meet up have a bite and a drink food is good service is not bad but the only problem is the people smoking you can not enjoy your food and there is no designated smoking area away from the non smokers VERY ANNOYING

Steak & ale is a great place to meet friends after work for a few drinks, or to watch the rugga. It's a lively place to hang out, but definitely a place for the boys. The food is good & the drinks reasonable.

Really great vibe, awesome food and great service. I keep coming back here when I'm in the area. Food is priced well with the steak carrying a premium, but absolutely worth it.

Had prime rib - not bad 7/10 My wife ordered rump medium rare, was served sirloin instead 2/10 for that. Whilst eating had a waiter hanging around me waiting for me to finish so that he could hang the wind drapes outside. Very unprofessional, and not a manager in sight. Definitely won't be going back

The right place for carnivores. Went two times for lunch. The 400 gr. pork spare ribs were delicious, as well as the challenging 500 gr. rump steak, cooked to perfection - medium/rare as requested. Chips, stir fry vegetables and mashed potatoes were well done too. The home made piri-piri sauce it is not to be missed. Good vibe, attentive service,... More
