Not bad at all

Pre-concert meal, 4 of us. Very good cocktails. Nice white wine, not chilled enough, and stood on the table after pouring. Shameful disrespect for 2 decent bottles of wine. 3 of us had the 10oz steak, 1 the 1lb lobster. Perfectly adequate portion sizes. Cut of meat okay. Not marbled enough as a... read more

Had a quick lunch here after a showround of the Radisson Blu hotel it's located in. Fish cakes were delicious and plenty of them, colleagues steak bites were exactly that - about 5 bite-size pieces of steak - perfectly cooked and very tasty he said but not enough for a "lunch" I didn't think. The highlight for me was the... More

We where going to a show at the Manchester Arena and wanted to eat early evening, we came across this place, which was very welcoming and very cosy. The chips and salad (which where both very good) where as much as you can eat. The lobster and steak where both very good quality, all in all I will go back... More

Had the lobster meal with limitless fries and salad. Simply divine! Lobster was the best I've had in a long time. Fries was just right but the salad was something else! Must have had at least three salads! Staff are all smiles, courteous and attentive.

If you like steak and/or lobster, this place is definitely worth a visit. I had the steak which was cooked perfectly to my preference (medium rare) and my girlfriend was very pleased with her lobster. The chocolate cheesecake for dessert was also amazing! Although our starters arrived a bit later than we'd have liked, the staff were very attentive with... More

Came here for my 21st birthday meal... The service is slow however it's a nice atmosphere. I ordered steak which was about average nothing too fancy and my friend ordered lobster. The lobster was very good and was presented wonderfully. The peppercorn sauce for the steak however was awful. The onion rings for the price - you get very few... More

Could not fault the food, steak cooked perfectly extra fries and salad on request. Only issue we had was slow service, ordered coffee and waited half an hour, went to cancel it at the bar and they were only just preparing it. Other than that little hiccup excellent value for money and great food, can't comment on the coffee though

We came here specifically for the lobster as the prices are very good, the lobster was okay but the steak really impressed me. The unlimited fries and salad were a great addition, and dessert was lovely too. The place had a far more relaxed vibe than I expected which was good, it was more like an upper class pub with...
