A week ago, four of us visited to celebrate a birthday, we arrived and were seated. Drinks were ordered and the birthday party got off to a good start. We all chose the Surf & Turf (£25.95), my husband chose to upgrade to a fillet (£3.95) and the other three of us had a steak sauce (£2.50). We had 1... More

Four of us had a Groupon deal dinner here last night, three had a dish of prawns, I had a large portion of white bait, then we all had the 10oz Rib-Eye Steak. I've had Rib-Eye Steak in some of the best restaurants around the world, but this one was without a doubt the best I've ever had and the... More

Four of us went on a Groupon deal. The meal was excellent. Prawn starter was very tasty, main course ribeye steak was wonderful with plenty of fat chips, mushrooms and tomatoes. All followed by a very nice ice cream with maple syrup. The staff are very friendly and professional. Well worth another visit.

We have been a few times to this restaurant, this time on Groupon. Even though it was a cheap meal on Groupon, the staff were very friendly and could not do enough to help us. A very good meal as if we were paying full price. My only suggestion/criticism would be if its a cold evening or if you're going... More

Me and my partner wanted to go here for a long time, visited last week, to find that it was really disappointing. My boyfriend had the ribs and lobstor and I had the crab - there was next to no crab meat, even in the legs, and prawns were still frozen. The lobster was disappointing - he had never tried... More

Excellent food and service and very clean with friendly staff. Operates in a very competitive market area and stays ahead of the competition.
