As good as any steak I've... More

Great place to go if you like steak. Rather expensive for the setting, but worth it if steak is your thing. Went there several times, always good, friendly staff.

The meat is amazing, the Service outstanding and the farm and garden fantastic (especially with kids in summer). We keep coming back, don't forget to taste the bearnaise sauce :)
