We visited as a group of 6 and all of us were very happy with our meals and desserts! Debbie, the owner was very welcoming and she helped us chose from the amazing menu! Portions were very big, the chef cooks an amazing range of British home comfort food like fish & chips, shepherds pie, steak & chips. Lemon meringue... More

I have been going to Luxor for many years and except for the 1886 restaurant at The Old Winter Palace this is the best restaurant that I have had the pleasure to eat it! The food is excellent and the portions extremely generous. I do not normally eat traditional "English" fare whilst on holiday and this restaurant enabled me to... More

I have spoken about this restaurant so many times. Its excellence, its food and its owner Debbie are all First Class. Over the years this restaurant has become so popular that it is impossible to visit it without bumping into previous diners from former years. Most of us are on Christian name terms and so I suppose we are a... More

Four of us had dinner here last night. Took a taxi from the Hilton. The food was all homemade and super fresh. I had the meat pie with onions. The pastry was superb. My sister had the chicken stuffed with mozzarella. Top notch. The guests beside us had some really yummy looking red curry. This restaurant is great!

The Top Restaurant for British food, owned by Debbie, she ensures you have a great meal, nicely prepared with all the trimmings, especially Sunday Roast, complete with bar serving beer and wine, on the top side of min range prices, but worth it.

This restaurant definitely deserves its top rating on TripAdvisor. The food was great. My friend is a vegetarian and she also had a lovely meal here. Yes the food takes a while, but it's worth it.

After waiting a while for a table and for the waiter to take our order, we waited over an hour and a quarter for our food to be prepared. With a small child, this was very difficult. The ambiance is nice, but fancy, which also made it hard for a child. The food was good, but nothing unique.
