Great location and you must book to guarantee a table. The best steaks in town but you will pay for it. The cocktail are very good and a must try. Wine a bit expensive but good quality. Worth a visit but take lots of money

This was our second visit to this brilliant restaurant, both times we have ordered the lunchtime special. £11 for steak & chips is a great deal and I love the fact that it is the top restaurant on here but yet they don't waiver on quality when they do a lunch special and the staff are so polite & friendly....

We were recommended this restaurant by colleagues and weren't let down. Really friendly, attentive service. We all loved that they brought the steaks out on a wooden board to show the various cuts and discuss flavour. The chosen steaks were cooked to perfection and the recommended wine was superb. What a treat. I will return with my wife.
