Steak
temper is a unique BBQ, steak and open fire pit restaurant where we cook everything in front of your eyes using only wood and charcoal in huge 4.5m long fire pit in the middle of the room.

We only use the best produce available and source our meat from local farms and butcher it all ourselves in house.

We serve this alongside cornish fish and seafood on corn tortillas and flat breads we made in house.

Each week we have ‘Sunday sharing specials’ for the table.

We have 180 seats which you can book but we always reserve room for walk-ins.

It was... OK! Better for the kind of night where you want food while you’re getting lashed than “going out for dinner”. Service was mostly warm and engaging, but with a couple of cold fish. I was surprised by how light the bill felt given the numbers of dishes we had between three of us, but even the “mains” are all quite small plates - We were all hungry again two hours later.

Amazing food in a really chic lovely restaurant but unfortunately the staff totally let it down. Very pushy and rude.

Portions too small. Steak was average. Service needs to be better. Fun ambience but music far too loud, it’s a dining experience not a club. Glad I’ve been, good evening probably won’t return.

A different take on steak! Not a chip in sight but the potato signature dish worked & If you’ve never tried Thai larb worth a go. Starters of tacos wee good although pork edged it over goat. Very industrial type surroundings and the music a bit on the loud side. Our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly.

Great food and atmosphere. Only spoilt by a brat of a waiter asking us to move to the bar because he needed our table for another booking when we had literally just finished our main courses and hadn’t even been offered the dessert menu. We’d only been sat at our table for 75 mins. Very rude

Food was far too salty and garlicky and I love garlic! Service was mediocre and music was far too loud

Maybe - as the vibe was fun and lively. But the food was semi cold, not fresh at all! Clearly all pre prepped which is a shame!

Excellent as always. Very much enjoy the concept of sitting at the counter and watching the open fires being used, one of our favourite places to eat when in London

Great food and drinks. But far to small portions and loud bad music. They were playing Eye of the Tiger as we got in! We had to scream to one another.

Again no fillet steak on the menu. Had to leave table without dessert due to next booking. Main meals did not arrive until 8.20pm (sat down at 6.25pm) booking ended at 8.15pm

We’ve before at Temper and have been happy with the place. This time the meat for both starters and main arrived cold and tasted burned. We also felt that the roast sides had been sitting outside for a while. This Sunday roast at 8pm felt like an end of service meal, shame that the prices were not reflecting the lack of effort! I’m sorry to say this because we have always liked the restaurant.

I went for the Sunday roast. Poorly presented; and the roast beef was especially poor, just a jaw workout. The tacos were solid though. All in all, I won’t be a repeat customer.

It was okay considering it wasn’t busy. The service was v poor had to look for a waiter twice asked to order after they took our drinks order it then took a while for them to arrive and then had to find someone to order food !!
Food came reasonably quick, it was okay the food wasn’t outstanding just okay /fair. It was roast so not a lot you could say.

Counter is very uncomfortable, seats being fixed if you are a bit overweight it is a very unpleasant experience. Food was decent, pork tacos were the most memorable one and negroni accompanied well. Our waitress was exceptionally well.
Am I inclined to go back, not 100% sure.

Very meat heavy. I like a steak and burger but the veggie options are light and the Mexican tacos and guacamole aren’t that good for the price. Good location and venue but too meaty for me!

Extremely overpriced. Staff were not that interested in us. Steaks looked all exactly the same and were average and they forgot half the sauces. Not really what you expect when dinner for 5 is 250 quid. Took them 15 minutes to bring a card machine. Best avoided.

As always, the food at Temper was amazing and couldn’t recommend it more.
However, above all the service here would have me coming back time and time again.

Both the chief and waiter that were looking after went above and beyond.
I can’t wait to return again :)

Bit of a disappointment this. Really poor service throughout. Entirely passive staff who waited for us to ask for things rather than being attentive. Food is subjective but for me this looked like it would be a great meaty treat but the chicken wings were barely cooked, the steak was decent tasting but quite dry and the potatoes were... odd. Worst was when we went back upstairs and there was no one on the front desk. I found the hostess on her phone behind the curtain which hides the cloakroom when I went looking for my coat. Real shame.

Needs the music down a little so we can hear each other but otherwise very good.
