This place is okay but not great, the trouble is that the pieces are high. Three of us visited and the food overall was pretty average but the bill at the end was expensive for what we had and the quality on offer.

From the outside it appears to be another unassuming, bustling corner pub but upon entry it is full of wonderful smells, welcoming smiles and a multitude of conversations. The staff were welcoming and very friendly. The food was fabulous! It felt like a family gathering - great food and conversation. Definitely worth a visit for those who enjoy great fare... More

This restaurant is absolutely buzzing. From the banter with the staff on arrival, to excellent friendly service throughout and fantastic steaks to eat,it couldn't be better. During your visit and while waiting on your food the staff will carry out large trays of raw meat and explain the different cuts of beef and how yours will be presented. Bells where... More

We have cause to visit this area on a regular basis and when in need of some comforting food we always pop in. Staff are always friendly and helpful and the meat is delicious. Our 10 year old daughter enjoys real food and its great that they will do half portions from their dinner menu. They have a good selection... More

I'd heard good things about this place so I decided to take a long lunch from the office and check it out for lunch. It was a fantastic sunny day so we opted to sit outside. After sometime waiting, we were not approached by any staff. I took the initiative and went inside to grab two menus. Once we'd looked... More

Eat here about once a month - it's always beautiful. For a place that's known for it's steaks, I can safely say the fish is also beautiful. Service is really good, staff really friendly & good for a laugh. Always great atmosphere.

The seafood appetizer was lovely, best fish cakes ever (and this group travels and eats out alot). Now the steak....I had the filet and it was grand! Cooked perfectly... More
