Steak night on a Monday- but no sirloin, fillet or chateaubriand. Wait for ages to get food and then steaks incorrectly cooked, rib eye was wafer thin and side dishes missed off. No refills of drinks offered. Offered dessert and then wait half an hour for it to come and to top it all off there is one missing- had... More

Went for lunch, first time visit. Started with scallops. bacon , black pudding. Only 2 scallops, but then only cost £7.95. Main course Wild mushroom Rissotto. Really good. Then a brioche bread and butter pudding served with ice cream and a soft fruit. Another success. Service was smooth, unobtrusive. All together a pleasant meal

Had a nice meal here, reasonably priced three courses £19.50, obviously drinks bump the price up, a lot!

We went on a Monday. We chose the Prix Fixe menu. The frites were really vile . My partner was not impressed with her steak,though I found mine satisfactory. The mussels I had were quite acceptable.

We went on Monday for steak night - such good value for money. Really tasty steaks, well cooked to order - we had wilted spinach, fries and peppercorn sauce as accompaniments but lots of other options. Nice range of wines by the glass and warms chocolate fondant for desert...it made Monday night feel like Friday night. We will return!

As we were a large party of 19 people we had to pre order our menu choice from a wide range of options even for my dietary requirements. We had a long table so couldn't see those at the other end. On arrival they were happy to see us and we were greeted with a drinks reception of sparkling bubbles... More

Another visit to the Brasserie, and we thoroughly enjoyed it using Groupon voucher which is incredible value for money. Prosecco, Virgin blood Mary's - salmon, fish and chips, sorbet all divine. Staff attentive, lack personality though, but very professional. Malcolm John was in the kitchen, no wonder both meals were superb! Would recommend and dine here again

We had a fantastic meal here for my girlfriend's birthday. Started with some champagne cocktails, then bubbly with starters followed by a fantastic châteaubriand to share. It was cooked slightly more than we normally eat steak so if you like rare, ask for 'really rare!' Excellent value and good service apart from the slow start waiting to order drinks. Will... More
