Wow what a good value meal. You can pick your cut out of the butchers window. Cooked to perfection on the grill. Only reason it is not 5 stars is that there were no real sauce options to go with the steak. I would recommend this to any meat lover. Do not overdo the sides the steak and salad fill... More

A very very busy place, and its not hard to see why. The steaks are really good, although so huge. I had an eye fillet which is the biggest I have ever seen. I was glad I chose the garden salad, as opposed to the other salad, which came with an enormous serve of diced raw onion and cabbage. No... More

Let's start with the pros : the place has great service and the staff are friendly and courteous. The food it's self is more pub quality then a steak house and I would recommend eating here for a cheap eat then a nice steak. Will say however that it is value for money.

This was a business dinner and being a Wednesday night it was very quiet, so there was not much atmosphere, However the Steaks' were great and their service good. Would be good to visit on a busy evening.. the toilets are down some stairs so unsuitable for wheelchairs.

Hadn't eaten here for a couple of years until tonight. 1st thing I noticed was the place has been upgraded with new furniture and been painted - new owners must have done this as before the update, I reckon the furniture was originally from the 70s and had a certain style that was. Difficult to describe. Menu is really simple.... More

This is an iconic restaurant and one that I have been coming to since it opened 40 years ago. The meat is always cooked to perfection and the traditional salad gives it that edge over any of these newer steak houses. This is a no frills place that puts the emphasis on food, it doesn't need gimmicks.

I hadn't been to the Barbecue Inn for years and I am now regretting my oversight. Had dinner rhere the other night with 2 other family members. We all ordered different cuts of meat, but we all wanted them cooked rare to medium, bordering on rare. Each steak was cooked to perfection and was delicious. The wine list was adequate,... More
