The bar staff were lovely as usual and we were seated promptly our order was taken and the bottle of wine ordered... More

Took the BF for his birthday meal on Friday night. Last ate here about five years ago. The difference between then and now is enormous. The BF was so much looking forward to the Steak and Kidney pudding he had five years ago, lush, home made, lashings of meat and divine. Friday nights portion was deflated, dry, small, hardly any...

Sam's Chop House is an independent. We need to keep these independents in business or the world will be full of boring chains!! I love going out on Friday night - it makes the weekend appear longer and I really needed a good start to it. We ate at Sam's early doors and were feeling pretty hungry. The barman served... More

We arrived second sitting in December, it was actually rammed with people. Great atmosphere, down to the brass statue of Lowry? At least I think it was him! The table was 10 mins late because people wouldn't move not the chop house fault but they comped us a bottle of prosecco so unexpected. Nothing was too much trouble and I... More

The Pea Soup and Stuffed Mushrooms were really good but the Cheese and Leek Tartlet was cold with soggy... More

Sam’s is my favourite of the three chop house locations in the city centre. It’s the atmosphere – the basement location, the slightly uncomfy chairs, the paint colour on the walls that’s reminiscent of nicotine staining, the dark brown tiles in the bogs – you could almost envisage yourself back in 1872 when it opened. Almost. I like the food.... More

Usually for me, the British cousine is affiliated with deep fried fish and chips. And yes, this was also what I ordered. Fish 'n' chips. My girlfriend and I decided to go beyond the usual choice... Italian, and went British. The surroundings in this 150 year old pub were cozy and great. The service was in top as well.. The... More

Came here on a busy Saturday night to catch up with friends from a previous workplace, and couldn't fault the food or the service. Everyone was raving (and dreaming) about the food for several days afterwards. The haddock was melt in the mouth, those that ordered corned beef hash wished they could have it for breakfast the following day, the... More
