Even though the name suggests the offerings, I felt that the variety of steak and lobster was a bit limiting. I chose a vegetarian risotto which was OK, but nothing to rave about.

After reading reviews on here we decided to opt for the 2lb lobster and the 16oz Steak, we couldn't fault the steak it was delicious but the lobster was sparse and overcooked. As for the unlimited fries and salad, the look we got of the waiter when we asked for more fries was of disgust, after we had finished eating... More

Dear Reviewer Apologies for you not enjoying the lobster your feedback has been passed onto the kitchen team. I have spoken with the serving team regarding the incident with the fries for a larger table depending on how many guests are ordering fries the kitchen may send out a larger portion this generally goes down very well for our guests....

A graduation lunch, which turned out to be a little dissapointing.. didn't live up to the hype. Granted a table of 7, with at least 6 other tables of 2-4 (so not busy) may be more difficult to .

Just been, I had steak, cooked perfectly, wife had lobster, although it was tasty, there just wasnt enough lobster. The staff were superb, very helpful cracking the lobster, brought us extra fries. Couldn't fault it, but if you are hungry, avoid the lobster. Only one thing, the bar didn't have any pino grigio wine, in a hotel!!.

One of the best steaks I've ever had. 10oz ribeye for £18 with unlimited salad and chips while other restaurants have the cheek to charge 20-24 quid for a rump. The waiters also come over every 10 or so minutes to ask if you would like more chips or salad, this is surprising as I thought you would have to... More

A great concept! Steak was very good but salad boring and Bearnaise sauce tasted artificial. French fries thin like McDonald's.

The idea is good and it is was very easy for Davide, our waiter, to 'up sell' to large steaks and a 2 lb lobster, It was therefore difficult to understand how an order of two large steaks and one lobster went wrong, but it did. Two small steaks were served, following by what appeared to be genuine apologies it... More
