Good Steaks

If your after a good steak then this is the place to go, although if you like a drink you may find the drinks prices high with only bottled beer no draft available.

Love the actual building, it is small but I like that as it is never too busy, there is still plenty of space in between tables so you dont feel cramped though. Staff are friendly. The food is really nice, must have the mash!!
