Good food and service here . Staff dealt with a seating issue very efficiently - moving us away on our request from a very noisy table . The food was very good .

Both very welcome. I ordered a cocktail which was delicious, and both of us had the steak frites which was cooked perfectly for us, medium... More

My boyfriend took me to this restaurant for my birthday as I'm a big steak fan. One thing I would recommend is ALWAYS book as it was extremely busy when we arrived around 5pm (luckily he had booked). The vibe when you walk in is very warm and friendly, and the interior is gorgeous! We were seen to absolute straight... More

They know meat, they have the proper cuts, it served properly and it is very tasty. For me the only problem was the noise. It was not full but still it was difficult to have a conversation. Very recommended for the meat quality.

A busy restaurant at 6pm on a Saturday night after a matinee. Operate a 'take a number' waiting system which worked well for our party of 5 - I think we had to wait at the bar for about 20 minutes. Service and food were very good - only let down by finding part of a blue elastic band in... More

Sophie's Steakhouse I don't know really, on the plus side, we went because the served late and would take kids as part of a large party (20). It's also reasonably priced. They make a good dry martini. The food is ok, but I ordered fish and it's a steakhouse, so the fact that it didn't taste fantastically fresh may have... More

Description
Great steak, giant martini's & guaranteed fun.

Open all day, ideal for business lunch, post work cocktail, a perfect pre & post show hotspot, fabulous dinner with friends or big blow out with a party.

Our steaks are cut from naturally raised, native breed British beef, much of which we age & butcher in house. Whilst beef is our thing, we have other favourites BBQ ribs, grilled fish, roast chicken, fresh salads & amazing homemade puddings.

We are all about the personal touch & great for any occasion.
