This is probably the worse meal I have had in a long time. The beer and wine were fine but the food was appalling. We had pate to start which was served with a side salad which was limp and uninteresting. There was enough pate...to serve 3 people on one plate …. Clearly not home made. Bread to serve was tasteless and not proportional to the massive serving of pate. Fillet steak to follow which again was served with a limp tasteless salad and very poorly made chips … although these were at least homemade. The steak was very poorly cooked. I had to send my steak back as it had blood oozing onto the plate. Asked for medium cook was rare both times … couldn’t be bothered to send back again: This place charges for high end and produces not even cafe standard. We did at least get money back on one steak and Sadie the waitress was a very friendly lady. Unfortunately I would recommend avoiding at all costs.More

Visited the chambers on Thursday for a quick lunch, was greeted at the door by a friendly, polite and professional staff member named Fabio. I’ve ordered a steak sandwich and a glass of white wine. Steak was cooked perfectly.. medium as desired. After having lunch...I had the pleasure of taking a “tour” of the restaurant and seeing the 2 function rooms with private bar that are available upstairs. I will definitely return for a quick lunch and already thinking of booking a private party for my birthday coming up in February.More

We had a really lovely meal, for the past two years we have spent our wedding anniversary at Chambers. We thoroughly enjoyed our cheese board starter, followed by risotto and my husband had a burger. The portions were an amazing size, we could not manage...a dessert. We had a special cake board made for us as it was our anniversary with a candle. We also enjoyed lovely cocktails. The staff are very friendly, we didn’t feel rushed at all, we will be back next year if not before , thank you for a great time 😃 Sarah and JohnMore

I was expecting a 5* experience but unfortunately I didn’t feel we got that. Little things like no serviette on the table, when the waiter brought us the wine they just put it on the table, no opportunity to try before we buy and they...didn’t pour it for us! The service seemed rushed which was odd really. We were sat in the back room on our own which I don’t think had the same atmosphere. Our starters were OK, I had the goats cheese tart which could have done with a sauce on the salad But it was tasty. The potatoes on my main were cold so I had to send it back and wait 10 mins for another one, the sea bass was nice tho. Husband said his steak was the best he has ever tasted. So a mixed review and not up to my expectations.More

We were a party of 10 and found The Chambers quite by chance but are so pleased we did. The staff were very welcoming and set up a table to accommodate all 10 of us. They were very attentive and the food was delicious, freshly...cooked and well presented. Excellent service. Thank you.More
