As always a great evening out. The staff were kind, welcoming and attentive. The food (steak night) was excellent and great value. It feels really safe and COVID secure and it’s such a shame they’ve had to shut again for lockdown but understandable. Love everything about the Granville

Lovely roast, only problem we were told they needed table back for 3.30pm we arrived on time 2.15pm, food served 2.50pm so we didn't rush I'm afraid, we had no starters either but dessert and coffee. We left at 4. 10 pm so weren't chased.

Food quality not as high as previous. Ordered the sirloin steak - not a great cut, a bit thin, small and quite a bit of fat. Came with just a tomato, some wilted rocket and a side fat chips (which were good as usual).

We visited for Sunday lunch. We booked The Granville based on the reviews and menu options that were available to view on the OpenTable app...so we were a little disappointed to get there and find the menu was totally different. Food was delicious though and I absolutely do recommend. But just be aware that the menus on this app are not accurate.

The Granville
Responded on 19 November 2020

Thank you for your review, we are sorry the menus are not up to date, we do have a link on the open table page to our website where the menus are kept up to date. Delighted you enjoyed your meal though and we are very pleased that you would recommend us. Hope to see you again after Lockdown!

Very poor and limited vegetables with Sunday Roast. Portion sizes are almost child size. Extremely noisy restaurant

The Granville
Responded on 19 November 2020

So sorry to hear how disappointed you were with our Sunday Roast. There are usually plenty of vegetables, we provide them on a large sharing platter. I will pass this on to the chef and we will look into what happened. Sorry that you found the restaurant noisy, we can get very busy on Sundays. We hope you might give us another try at some point. Once again, we are very sorry.

We were staying nearby and this was the nearest pub/restaurant, fortunately we loved it and made another reservation. So eating there twice in one week is a good recommendation.
