Steak in City Centre

Gorgeous, highly polished wood, glinting brass, low lighting and cool jazz ensure this sleek eatery resembles a posh Pullman dining car that's somehow been bestowed with some Pre-Raphaelite murals. The food is aimed firmly at meat eaters; expect charcuterie platters, gourmet burgers and five choices of steak cut.

Bristol's canny carnivores love the bargain early-evening deal (between 5pm and 7pm), which brings two steaks for the price of one.
