On arrival we were greeted by a lady who also took our orders,we didn't get her name,but she was very friendly and looked to be really busy. The food we received was really good.

Love love love this restaurant! The food was amazing, and the environment was awesome. It was quite busy on the night we chose to go, but we were never forgotten about. Would highly recommend the carbonara, best pasta I have had out.

Had Angus steak was absolutely fantastic, wife loved her pasta, kids had good meals. Dessert we had the apple strudel, not as great as the main. Bit chewy I assume from being reheated in microwave but still nice

Very friendly and welcoming staff who attended your needs throughout the evening. Our second visit to Bishop Bros and will be back again.
One very small negative I feel was the courses were too close together and slightly rushed.

The four of us could not fault the food at all, all the meals were prefect the only downfall was the noise from the public area with it not having a wall separating it

There were four of us dining and three of us had steaks - all cooked perfectly with 2 medium rare and one medium and they all came out together.
The service was great, they came and asked us for drinks and checked on everything and they even took our order without writing anything down.
The restaurant furniture is a bit tired but the service and food made up for it, after all it is a public house so it isn't fine dining but it is definitely value for money I thought.

We ordered steak, one with fries and salad the other with mash and veg. I would rate the steak and fries 5 stars but the salad and veg were average. Excellent service.

Delicious steak and red wine jus, great friendly service, lacking a little in the ambience department and quite noisy when we first arrived but that soon settled down. Would return.

Excellent, uncomplicated meal. What I expect from a 'Gastro Pub' as opposed to other establishments who stick 'Gastro' in front of the name and turn out pub food.

The service as usual are good and the food pork belly and lamb was excellent though the salmon was slightly overcooked. The pork belly is a must. Try it!

Took my 80year old neighbour out for tea for all she does for me over the year, first time she had been out for dinner since losing her husband and she fully loved it, meal was a bit too big for her so she quite happily asked the waitress if she could take the left over garlic bread and half her meal home wish she had the next day, the waitress couldn't have been more helpful and kept checking on us for drinks and to see if meal was good, the cook that cooked the steak did the perfect job of it cooked rare and so tender

Great as always, I think the portion size might have changed a little, but that's OK because it left room for dessert! Would recommend to anyone, the waitress is lovely and meals are quick.
