Three of us ate on a Monday evening to celebrate my daughter's 18th Birthday.

Perfect place for a date.. Small place but it just adds to the charm. Great steak house.. But small menu to choose from. My sirloin was cooked exactly as I'd asked for it. Chips were really good. Annoying that they only sell bottled larger though.. Makes it really expensive to drink there. Will go back as its a welcome change... More
