I took my wife there for an anniversary dinner and we were very happy with the food. It's a little pricy but worth it. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. We would happily return there again. The staff recommended that we share a side portion of potato's to go with our stake which saved us a few quid too.

We have been eating here for many years, and have always found the staff and service excellent, nothing is too much trouble, we usually have steak here as it is the best steak we've had anywhere in the world - having travelled quite a bit. There arent any 'specials' and the menu doesn't change much, but it is always consistent... More

We came here on a Sunday night after saying many times before we had to give this place a go! We both had steak...mine was amazing! The sirloin was massive and took up half the plate, was seasoned well and the starters we equally as good. The only thing I would say was one of the large tables behind us... More

Booked in for a Friday night as a treat at the end of the week and once again it didn't disappoint! Our starter of spicy beef arrived quickly and was delicious! Next came our steak mains which I can only say were so deliciously amazing!! I love their Diane sauce too! I can never quite replicate at home! Can't wait... More

We visited for my son's birthday recently. We went there because my son is a slightly fussy eater, but he has been before and was very pleased with the meal he had. Once again, we were treated to superb food, cooked just the way it should be. We all had steak of some variation and we skipped on a starter,... More

The food, service & wine was outstanding. This was the finest meat I've had, full of flavour & cooked to perfection at medium rare. The portions are huge, & the Chianti was superb. It's quite cosy too. I'd heard it highly recommended with an excellent reputation & was not disappointed. We'll be back! Thanks all, keep it up!

After hearing so many rave reviews, I couldn't wait to go with my boyfriend as part of my Christmas present. We both had a starter (stuffed mushrooms and calamari) followed by a steak with various side dishes. We were very impressed with all of the food, the sides come in huge portions so don't over order like we did! Service... More
