The attached pub complete with pool table and scruffy men really detracts from what was excellent service and food. The service was prompt and friendly and the meat excellent. Great wines and excellent selection of tap beer. Get rid of the pub.

Nice, big restaurant dining area with good space for your chairs to go in and out. We lunched in the restaurant and were met as we walked in by a cheerful waitress who showed us to a suitable table, near the window. Was raining outside so was quite nice watching it. Meal served in timely manner, preceded by a winning... More

If you like steak this is the place to come. But it can get very busy and alas my husbands order of medium, came well done but wasn't a problem. The steak tastes great but unless you order lots of vegetables (sides) you will miss your greens - but with the size of the steaks its hard to eat both!... More

As a steak house i would have thought that the menu would have more variety with their steaks as the choices were... More

We just took our family of teenage boys out to this place to celebrate a family birthday. We didn't have high expectations for a steakhouse in the suburbs, but were pleasantly surprised. It is a large and popular restaurant. The decor was modern, tasteful, and a bit querky. There was an open fire which was lent a nice ambience to... More

Down from Auckland and heard about this place and so glad we did. Great food, classic prawn cocktail had over 2 dozen prawns for $14 entree! Had the T-bone which was smoked before being cooked perfectly to medium rare. The fillet side just pulled apart. Good service and excellent value for money. Will come again for sure when I'm in...

Family of three ( teenage daughter) Service was cheery and efficient. We ordered pork spare ribs that looked as good as they tasted. One in our family ordered two entrees as a main and it was nice that they arrived together as they other dinners hadn't ordered entrees. The seafood chowder was presented inside a bread roll which was nice... More

Been here many times . Menu is tried and tested . I enjoy the steaks which are always cooked to your liking . As this is a chophouse I get the feeling that your steaks are sometimes rushed out and quality then does suffer a little . Wait staff are always attentive and there are lots of them . There... More

The best food I have tasted for a long time. Really flavoursome and many gluten free options even a gluten free cheesecake for desert. Loved this place, great service from the waiter.
