Five of us went here for our christmas meal. We had 5 different main courses, all cooked top perfection. My sirloin steak was melt in the mouth. Every course was cooked well. Service was very good, very attentive but not stifling. All in all a very nice meal and well worth the £28.50 per head. Well done relentless we will... More

Had our office christmas meal here. All had different meals, 3 courses £28.50, without exception all were well cooked and served. Scallops, lobster and steak exceptional and not small portions that you usually find when more expensive options are on the menu. Chips amazing, everyone said 'Oh, I won't manage all those' but suddenly they're all gone! Service really good,... More

We'd heard a lot of good stories about this place from friends and family. We went on a Wednesday night when you get 2 for 1 main meals if you book a starter, so steak and lobter (surf and turf) was the order of the day. It would have been reasonaly expensive at £25.95 but half price made it a... More

We had our Xmas doo here on a Saturday night and was as cracking night. The food and service was top notch. I had surf and turf which my steak was cooked to perfection and the lobster was out of this world. I would definitely recommend to go here. Will be going again for sure.

I've been frequenting this restaurant since 2009 and it was as good this evening as it has ever been. The portions are generous and the quality of the produce is very high. I had a fish stew which was packed with perfectly cooked fish, prawns and muscles. My husband had a 12oz rib eye which was tender and cooked to... More

We booked online but didn't get a call back to confirm. Had to ring two hours later to book for a table. What's the point of having an online booking option? The young lady on the phone was abrupt and unwelcoming. After reading the reviews on this site and the poor experience even before arriving, we decided to give this... More
