The meat comes served on hot rocks so it continues cooking, fine if you like your meat well done but if you like it rare it becomes a juggling job on the plate. Rather style over substance I feel. Service was good. Overall rather expensive for what we had. Puddings look amazing but I found the chocolate cheesecake a bit... More

Visited this place a couple of times and the roast is always excellent,this time our friends had their meal served on the hot rocks.

It was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. The coleslaw and chips were also delicious. The desert of banoffe pie was out of... More

The Sunday lunch was delivered to our table on a huge platter, meat, roasts, Yorkshire puddings and vegetables. We then had to help ourselves the food was well cooked but... More

The menu has a vast choice of local mature steaks, together with mixed grills and even a vegetarian mixed grill which are all served to the table on a lava stone heated to 500 degrees so the...
