If you can eat then this is the place. Basically u got lights to let them know u want more or not and they keep bringing you meats after meats until you burst. Staff are nice and friendly and cater for you. Good food. Bit pricey and also make sure you book way in advance for big numbers. 10 of... read more

I visited this restaurant for a family birthday and it was a lovely experience. All the staff were so attentive and polite, and the food... Oh my the food! The meat was so lovely and there were so many different varieties to suit all of our party of 9's different preferences. We loved the light system and before you had... More

Good size restaurant and easy parking. The food is very good, just keeps coming! You help youself to starter and then meat choices are brought to your table frequently or you can chose to stop this. You will definitely not be hungry! Price is what you would expect for the venue, so all in all a nice place to visit... More

Always knew it was there but never went in. So glad I did. The manager Simon, was so welcoming and all the staff made us feel special. Service elsewhere will never be the same again after having this experience! The meat was amazing. Thank you.

I've been numerous times to this restaurant, the food is amazing and staff are courteous. The reason I have given this restaurant a 1 star review is not because of the service or food - it is so this review stands out to the customers who are thinking to go to eat here and to the managers or owners who...

After a mix up with reservations at the whetstone branch a short call with the brilliant 5* manager Adam - accommodated us and within 2 hours we were eating - and could have asked for better he was polite and couldn't do enough for us - definitely a great manager - and it shows with the great service of all...

Went here Saturday night to celebrate my brothers birthday. The customer service was great, the staff really go out their way to ensure you have a good time, they even gave my brother complimentary cocktails because it was his birthday which was a nice touch. As soon as you arrive and you press the green buzzer on the table labelled... More

This place is buzzy and fun and the food is great. They come around throughout the night offering just about every meat product you can think of until you literally can't move! They have a great salad bar too. Service is good. If you sign up for their newsletter/email, then there are random good deals all the time, last minute... More

This is a fantastic night out! Although you are only allocated 2 hours, you come away absolutely stuffed. I understand why they do allocate a time slot, but this does add a little downer to the evening if you have met friends as you get kicked out once you're time is up and it's not in a location where you...
