About Bessie

Established in 2016, the drive behind Bessie was to create a meat focused restaurant with the ability to win the taste-buds of every Cantabrian. Serving up world class local produce and a selection of fine wines from around the globe, Bessie serves both as a destination for those special occasions whilst for others it feels like their local. Be surrounded by our cutting edge interiors and absorb the vibrant yet intimate space,whilst we deliver you consistently outstanding service and a truly unique dining experience. Making no apology for our love of meat, our restaurant features a meat room - a place of work and celebration of the main event - and with our menu showcasing top graded cuts of meat from nose to tail, there is even something for the more adventurous here. Let Bessie create you an experience to remember.

I found the food exceptional and the service good, but it was pricey, but I knew that before I went, so not really a complaint. May go back to try other meats.

From the moment I walked in I was welcomed at the bar and after some friendly chatter and a drink we were directed to our table. We were given time to peruse the menu before ordering and the friendly staff gave us an explanation of the menu. Melt in my mouth steak perfectly prepared and served with sauce and side dishes. I would return tomorrow to try other items on the menu. Well done Bessie team 👍

For an expensive steakhouse the serving sizes were pretty small. Especially the tomahawk which was definitely not 800g.
