I recently ate here as a party of 6 and had a super night. The staff were absolutely brilliant, so helpful and friendly and had no problem taking pictures and giving recommendations from the menu. I would have no problem going here again and would look forward to it. Definite thumbs up.

Both of us... More

I think the problem with this place was that we were expecting too much. We had tried to get in the previous night and it was fully booked, so we booked for the following night and managed to get a table only for the 9.30 slot.

Came here on a family occasion a couple of weeks back, it's our favourite restaurant, partly because of the reasonable price and top class steaks.. My steak was cooked to perfection as was everyone's! Well done guys

Myself and OH visited in January for a birthday dinner. The fillet steak was to die for! The service was amazing. We haven't managed to get back in there yet, but it's on the to do list. Highly recommended.
