We had the pleasure of having an absolutely fabulous meal @ this restaurant tonight. Lucian served us like we were royalty. The background music was familiar and made us feel relaxed and welcome. The food was something out of this world. We ordered burgers. The...steak & chicken were melt in the mouth. Can't say that I have ever had such devine burger. The malva pudding & apple crumble completed the meal. We will be back for another meal. Thank you for such a special and delicious meal. It's most definitely worthwhile to have a meal at The Cattle Baron.More

Great steaks, grilled to perfection. Just sad to see that the bounce back is not happening as fast as we would like it. Place is clean and service excellent. A typical chain restaurant.

We chose this restaurant at random as we fancied steak. We waited a while for menus and drinks and had to ask a second time for more than one menu between the four of us. However when the food did arrive it was excellent and...good value for money. The steaks were very tender and the portions very goodMore

This restaurant can be counted on consistently produce beautiful, tender steaks and the best ribs around. The decor may be a little dull, the cd on the same tunes every time you visit, but I can put up with this as the food is just...always good. I can suggest Cattle Baron to friends and just know they won't be dissapointed.More
