Have eaten here on countless occasions, never once having any negative culinary issues. Sunday Lunch is a must but remember to book early to avoid disappointment, expect a large delicious meal and maybe take a doggy bag for pooch. Going on special celebrations (a good drive for me). It's always a large steak, usually a 32oz or even 40oz (don't... More
