I've been here twice now and I don't like it. Both times the steaks have been great. Perfectly cooked and good quality. The service has been efficient and friendly. It's also nice to see some local beers on the menu. Everything else lets the place down. It's a beautiful old building on the outside but the makeover has removed any... More

Came here last Saturday for a meal with friends. We do like our steak, and after reading good reviews online, and checking the website out, thought we'd give it a go. Turned out to be an excellent choice. The food was excellent. A great menu with something for everyone, and lots of great dishes to choose from. Very well prepared,... More

Sunday dinner - they stop doing roasts at 5pm, which is fine, I'm not a fan. Very quiet, possibly as most folks want roast on a Sunday. Shame about the parking - we parked in the local sports centre and walked, although there is 2 hours parking on St Barts road, we didn't want to rush it. Starters were good... More

I've visited Bart's three times and every time the service, food and atmosphere has been excellent. The steaks are great, portion sizes are good and the staff are attentive without being overbearing. Also love the complimentary fudge with the bill :)

I went to Barts for lunch today (Tuesday), with a friend. When we arrived the place was empty, and felt cold and unwelcoming. The waiter however was welcoming, and turned the heating up, despite this I had to keep my coat on for all of the meal. We both had steak, mine was the steak frites, it started off ok,... More

It is very challenging to create the Barts atmosphere when we have only a few diners but we always do our best to make guests welcome. We are continuing to try and attract lunchtime diners with a special two course meal that contains many of our most popular dishes at a special price. More

Having had a Sunday lunch at Barts last week just had to bring my grand son who was home from Uni to try a "Barts Sunday Lunch". It was excellent, Food was Great, Service first class. The staff are very friendly. Can't wait to go back again.

Nothing wrong with the 80's except perhaps some of the fashions. We'll look into a full retro menu with a black forest gateau! We look forward to serving this reviewer and party again. More
