I have tried lots of different things on the menu but my favourite is the king prawns in garlic and chilli to start, these usually come with the shell on but I rather they didn't so the staff always make... read more

This place is my local. Love it, and everything it stands for. Guaranteed great food. If I'm being picky, the prices are a little high for what it is. Never had a bad meal here. Recommend to all

I ordered the Tornedos Rossini steak. I can honestly say it was the best steak I have tasted in years. My wife ordered the Surf and Turf and... More
