Great atmosphere

Pleasantly surprised upon arrival to find a guy playing piano downstairs which and added real warmth to feel of the place. The food was simple food done really well. Looking forward to a repeat visit.

Great service and lovely food! Some of the orders were mixed up but managed to rectify the problem without any fuss. All the meals were great!

Live music helps create a buzzing atmosphere. Very popular place and I can see why. Food is excellent; we both had steak and can recommend it. Good service too and we'll definitely return.

Really enjoyed it here, the menu had loads more than just steaks and looked really good. Had one of the grass fed premium steaks with the prawns too - was excellent and reasonably priced. The staff were really friendly and the service was good. Would recommend and will be visiting again!
