Excellent food, service, ambience. Really happy to see the step inn taking all precautions and wiping tables and chairs after every sitting. Food and service were excellent as always.
Great experience especially with two small babies.... The staff are always so friendly and chatty, staff turnover in the Step seems to be low so always the same faces which is nice. Food is always second to none and plenty of food when it comes to value for money... Their chicken wings are a must 😍
This was our first visit since just before lockdown. It was a very pleasant experience from start to finish. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and from a covid 19 perspective, we felt very safe. The staff were obviously well trained on all matters covid related.
We had a table upstairs which was lovely and quiet and the tables were very well spaced apart. All diners are required to wear a mask until they are seated and going to and from the toilet.
After 90 minutes the waitress discreetly placed the bill on the table without making a fuss about the time. It was subtle and a great way to let us know that time was up.
Will definitely return again soon.
Our favourite place for Sunday dinner. Always great service. The chicken wings are gorgeous and the fish melts in your mouth!
Amazing food beer and cocktails went down lovely 😍 definitely be back again
This was our first time going to The Step Inn since lockdown and it was a lovely experience. Food was wonderful as usual and the staff were very efficient and adhered to the covid guidelines in a subtle but effective manner.
Food was amazing would highly recommend, staff very helpful
Every place has that table you would only use if you has no other table. Having booked a few days ahead I was surprised to be offered this table. I asked to be moved to a different table & unfortunately I had to insist & pointed out that i had booked not just randomly walked in.
Lovely night. Very covid conscious
Well done to the Step
Very happy with our visit .Our first time in a pub/restaurant since lock down Service was excellent. Food was v good .Staff all wearing masks . Would be happy to go back again
Food and service were well worth the money. It loses one star as it felt a little too busy considering COVID towards the end of our meal.
3.30 ordered two steak sandwiches and two drinks place was quits which suited me. Service was very good only the two steaks were very dry and buns not toasted well enough. Maybe a one off. Will come again for dinner because it was nice the last time i had dinner.
Delicious food and service with a smile. Would highly recommend
Excellent service, lovely food and great atmosphere!
Had fantastic food in the step inn. Seabass was cooked to exceptional quality and really great flavours. Great value for money. Will definately be back soon!
Top Class restaurant! 5 star staff... with the most delicious food...

Place well set up, staff following rules. All good.
Excellent procedures in place to make us feel safe. Thank you for all your hard work.
Excellent covid policy in place. Great buzz. Felt like a bit of normality again. Food delicious. Chef takes pride in his/her work. Great team effort. I’ll definitely be back. Oh and the cocktails are a cut above the usual fare. Top marks to everyone involved.
The Step Inn is the most reliable place, you are always guaranteed excellent service and delicious food. It is definitely the most consistent restaurant I know, and I've been going there for the past few years. The staff are lovely and always welcoming. It also feels very safe during these strange times. Can't recommend the step highly enough.
Lovely food and great service. A lovely meal out was had with friends.
Step inn is always a good choice. We live abroad and love to have dinner there.
Can not recommend the Step in enough, great food, nice atmosphere, They are a friendly team!
I cannot wait to get back to The Step Inn for food again.
I havent been in years and thoroughly enjoyed the experience start to finish.
There isnt one thing I could fault.
The fish tacos were refreshing and tasty. I got the chicken burger as my main, I opted to have the buffalo sauce added on, and I'm delighted I did.
The staff were friendly and actually engaged in a bit of banter throughout, which was so nice to experience especially during these trying times.
I would highly recommend going, and can't wait to go back.
This is the third time I have been to the Step Inn and all visits have been extremely pleasant. The staff are excellent and the food is to die for.
The staff are very well trained in Covid procedures so you feel secure.
I definitely will be back and bring some family members with me.
Had the best night out in a long time. The food was amazing and the staff were great. The Step Inn did amazing with social distance etc felt safe and relaxed there. Would 100% be back and recommend to anyone.
Seabass was delicious. Great service too. Will be back soon.
Think the price of some things at 8.90 is poor considering my wife was told she can’t have a drink if she ordered the portion of wings
Was not happy that guests were allowed to walk in/ left along with visits to bathrooms without wearing masks. It clearly states on the website masks should be worn at all times unless when seated at your table.
The restaurant had gone to a lot of trouble to comply with the required regulations but fell down at the above. Instead of feeling relaxed I was nervous & would be slow to return because of this. This is such a pity as the food & service were excellent.
Always a good visit To the Step Inn, nice food and great staff.
It was pleasant
Lovely evening, great service but missed the potato skins and Thai curry
Best bar food I've had in a long long time. Chicken supreme out of this world
Went for lunch & was not too busy. Prefer the evening menu. Service was good & reasonably priced.
Lovely, quality tasty food. Friendly staff and great service
