Would’ve never heard of this restaurant if it weren’t for the vegan protestors a couple of weeks earlier. Incredible food, one of the best steaks I’ve had. Will return!

Just thinking about my steak with garlic sauce is mouthwatering, it’s a go-to for birthdays every year and I’m yet to have anything negative to say about Rare: each one has a beautiful atmosphere and amazing service, and even better food! It’s only been two days since my last visit and I’m already excited for the next time I can go!

Great lunch👍 but I’m at the wrong end of town... Came for lunch on my own in my casuals... I look so out of the place... Port house steak - I asked for medium rare but I think it’s between medium rare to medium. Calamari - love the house made sweet chilli sauce, even I hate chilli in general but this sauce made the calamari taste so good 😍😍 Garden salad - extremely fresh and crunchy
