Welcomed perfectly, and offered drinks while our table was made ready. We expected that it was really busy as we waited 10 minutes, but when we got to the restaurant area, there were plenty of tables available so they must seat at the exact booking time.
Absolutely delicious food - we had sword to start, followed by surf and turf. The fillet steak was perfect and the lobster absolutely melt in the mouth.
Service itself was polite and helpful. The waiter very friendly and lovely. However, our biggest area for improvement was the time we waited for food. The starter came quickly but we waited 40 minutes for our main after the staters had been cleared away. We felt that was a little too long.
All in all, an exciting but delicious dinner.
We'd certainly go back.

Food alright a bit pricey. Service is good, but restaurants full of smoke from the kitchen. You can see the smoke from the Jospeh over bellowing out the open pass. You walk out smelling like a bonfire!

Had a lovely experience eating at your restaurants with friends. Beautiful food and great customer service. The only bit of constructive feedback I have to give is value of drinks which could be made more to the value of amount amount of alcohol given in mixer drinks.

Many thanks

Roasted vegetables were absolutely horrid and soggy. Pork chop gravy was actually bbq sauce and even after scraping the sauce off the chop still tasted of the sauce

This is really a great restaurant. It was my first visit and our waiter Jim talked us through the menu diligently and with knowledge.

The restaurant itself is situated in a great location and the inside is well decorated and designed.

The food was superb, best steak I have ever had.

This was the third time I'd been to brettingtons and the food was the usual high standard. My only issue was that on this visit there was an issue in the kitchen which delayed us being able to order. The staff let us know and apologised and this had never happened on previous visits. I understand that these things happen and we were kept informed so they handled it well in the circumstances

It was my daughters birthday - and she was visiting here from Japan - I really wanted the meal to be special - AND IT WAS!!! Food was delicious, the waitress, Leila, was delightful, we had SUCH a lovely evening. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion - it's expensive but SO worth it !!!

Booked a table for 8pm but did not get seated until 8.40 due to large crowds of people. Lung lady who was seating is was fantastic and could not apologise enough and gave us complimentary drinks for the trouble. The food was not worth the money however and unfortunately we will not be coming back

Our first experience was not as expected. The front of house staff did what they could to relieve the pressure from the kitchen, who clearly struggled to cater for a large party of 16. We had to wait 45 minutes for our starter, which in turn set back the rest of the meal, resulting in us having to put extra money on the parking meter.

Expectations would be for the kitchen to be aware of a large party booking in advance and staff accordingly. Unfortunately this was not the case, and we feel quality, and consistency suffered as a result. The service and food did not match the price bracket Brettingtons are going for.

That being said the potential for an outstanding dining experience is there, and we are sure given the right circumstances, this could have been an excellent gastro treat.

Place has gone drastically downhill since it first opened I won’t be going again. Service was slow considering there was only 5 tables of customers in the whole restaurant. The quality of food has got worst had a really sickly taste but more costly. My question was the restaurant a faze or has the owner took their eye off the business.

Food was absolutely fabulous. Cant fault it - presentation and cooking was great.
The drinks service was too slow. The service for the food was slow but we didn't mind having time between courses.
What put us off was the noise in the restaurant. Some customers were just too noisy, inconsiderate of others and ultimately rude.
For the food alone we would be back tomorrow, just found the service slow and the place too noisy.

Excellent food, great size portions and very well priced. Steak and lobsters were excellent.
Good service from a very pleasant member of staff. Thought the ambiance lacked a bit, but that wouldn’t stop me from going again and taking friends.

This was our second time visiting. It was a Monday lunchtime so quiet as expected. The service was faultless and the food beautiful! Our waiter didn’t hound us and left us to choose and enjoy as we pleased. We had lobster and steak with starters and drinks for £104 - great value! Definitely going back!

I've been back several times and never been dissapointed. The steaks are out of this world and always cooked to perfection. There's also a very well stocked bar and cocktails. Other people in the party have had the lobster and are just as complimentary about that

Nice venue, good variety of choices for starter dinner and dessert. I had ribs which didn’t have much meat on but taste was lovely, came with chips and had to pay more for sides which bumps up the price but were very high quality. Would go again but next time may have the steak instead. Service was very friendly and a relaxed atmosphere.

the website gave a different sunday menu to what was offered when we go there.
roast lamb cutlets or gammon nothing else
they offered me a chicken breast which was listed with chips rather than as a roast and charged me £18 for roast chicken, no yorkshire pudding, no stuffing or pig in blanket, frozen roast potatoes !!! really wasnt nice at all and won't be going back. wouldnt recommend for a roast dinner.

Terrible food and service - never again. Pork belly starter was cold - had to send back to heat up. Fillet steak shaped like bow tie (weird) and also overdone (cremated) when asked for medium to well. Lobster tasted iffy! Had to ask for mayonnaise from different waiter as our waiter dumped mains and took off - hate letting food get cold whilst waiting for condiments - these should be brought out before food.

We decided to splash out and have the US black Angus steaks and half a lobster too so it was an expensive meal but it was absolutely delicious. Easily the best steak I’ve ever tasted. Will definitely be visiting again

Service and food were excellent however the restaurant' acoustics make it difficult to have a quiet conversation with your partner. Staff were aware of the noise issue as they kindly delayed seating us and another couple until one particularly noisy party had left but even so it was difficult to have a quiet conversation even once we were seated.
