Rare Breed British Rump Steak
Grilled Hispi Cabbage
with beef fat bearnaise, corn
I really liked the vibe of this place, nice atmosphere and food and drinks were good though I would say a little over priced. We had a table booked for 8:45 and within an hour we had the bill and on the hurry up to pay
Fun relaxed vibe, with amazing quality food and drinks. Would recommend.
Had such a good time. The food was amaze d the staff were so friendly and informative! The music was banging and totally back to our roots! Many thanks
Great food. Unfortunate timing coinciding with the back end of a brunch. Extremity slow food service. Once food did eventually arrive it was all at once. Not as per previous dining experiences.
Lovely food. Nice atmosphere. But the music was way too loud inside. You could not have a conversation. We were fortunate to have a table outside after initially being seated indoors. Staff were very accommodating. Will visit again
I love this restaurant. Great food and great vibe.
Staff here are so brilliant! Food and wine were delicious.
Amazing flavour, sizeable portions. One snack and small/medium plate can absolutely fill you up
Food was amazing! Service was good to start with, but towards the end got very poor, couple of people sat down at the next table to us and seemed to know the waiting staff. Seemed to get preferential treatment as we were left for half an hour with the dessert menu without ordering or any drinks, we felt a bit ignored which is a shame as the service was great to start with. Food was very good.
Absolutely lovely. Our waiter, sorry I can’t remember his name, was absolutely brilliant. We travelled up to spend the day with my son who lives there. Thank you so much
Lovely reunion with friends - we had a great meal on the outdoor terrace in the sunshine.
Incredibly noisy, with a soundtrack of awful 80’s music including the Ghostbusters theme…
Pork bites, pork rib and truffle chips were lovely. Beef brisket was bland, as was the house salad.
Wouldn’t eat here again and felt it wasn’t good value.
Fantastic food, especially the ribs. Loved the atmosphere.
Food was delicious, cocktails were good however very strong. Defo be revisiting :)
Food was delivered late which is fine as they apologised but I thought they may have extended our time at the end as we had to rush our food to get more drinks in to make our monies worth. Cocktails are in a tiny glass which is fine but they finish too quick and the service wasn’t quick enough to catch up with our requests. All in all food was nice, staffed tried their best but I felt like they were understaffed.
Food was very spicy, music too loud and cost benefit not worth it
Delicious food, friendly staff. Cocktails seemed a bit watered down but overall we had a great lunch.
Good food, good ambiance - service was a bit slow at times but we didn’t mind as we weren’t in a hurry. Would visit again, especially on a sunny afternoon.
Best service we’ve ever experienced in a restaurant and we eat out somewhere new every single week! Our server was super attentive it honestly felt like we had a conveyor belt of people helping us out. Literally as soon as we finished every plate it was removed, as soon as we wanted to order the next course someone was there ready to take the order, and food was really fast! And yet nobody was hovering over us or anything. Also, our server had really great advice on what to pick from the menu. Food was amazing - particularly the pork rib, prawn tacos and cookie dessert. Will be back for sure. We sat outside as it was quieter, music is loud inside so choose based on the vibe you are after.
Excellent. Great friendly service. Bright open restaurant.
Fab find. Amazing food and service, would definitely go back. Loved it
Food was absolutely delicious - the prawn tacos and sea bass were particular highlights!
Buzzy great food and excellent service ! Our South African waiter was fab !!
Not good value, too expensive for what it is. +50£ for average meat + side + drink
Really enjoyed the bottomless brunch great service
Really enjoyable lunch with friends. Great food.
A fun evening with attentive staff and generous portions. An energetic vibe sitting in the heart of the kitchen.
When we arrived at Temper the service was initially excellent. We were shown to our table and asked if we wanted a high chair for our son. However from that moment on the service was non existent. We had to wait an age to order. Once the food arrived no one checked to make sure the food was ok. We both paid £33 for a 500g Rib eye steak and we shouldn't have. The steaks were full of gristle. They were also tough to cut and very chewy. Finally they hadn't been seasoned enough. Very disappointing. We also ordered beef nachos that were absolutely delicious as well as truffled parmisan fries that were also delicious. However, if you spend £33 on a steak you expect it to be decent. We won't be returning to Temper.
The staff were wonderful and hugely accommodating to us ‘booking late, turning up early’! Even though it was Hamza’s 4th shift, he was really confident and looked after us to the highest standard!
Rushed service, food a touch cold, only 1hour 30 for the table although it wasn't busy. Not that exciting, wouldn't go again.
too loud, you can’t hear each other speak. Food isn’t bad but totally over priced. didn’t feel classy at all
Lovely evening. Felt a little rushed as we were all done in 45 minutes. Food delicious. Just felt a bit in and out.
Medium steak cooked over the woods is the 1st time we tried it, overall tasty, not much sides to it or sauces unless order it, waiter who took our order was friendly & helpful, service charge is not free unfortunately
I enjoyed the food and the service. Overall the vibe was good
The food and service was good after we received our drinks and food. I was disappointed that the menu was limited and this was not mentioned when I was booking. I have allergies and the limited menu was an issue for me. My partner was pleased with his food so thumbs up there.
I would visit again but I'd call in advance next time.
Nice terrace for outdoor dining, cocktails were good but food was a bit average. Not cheap either but service was great.
Great food and great service!! Would highly recommend
Great food and atmosphere. Slow to take orders and very slow to bring out drinks!
10-15 mins to bring a bottle of beer and one cocktail is disappointing.
Would return however would double up on the drinks order to avoid getting thirsty!
Overpriced, poor service
Delicious food and brilliant service. Really interesting menu that we all enjoyed
