Although reasonably good value, that's because they don't have to pay someone to cook your steak - you cook it. Nice interior which fills up quickly, but the overflow is into a large beer-garden where smoking is allowed. Would you enjoy your food, however nice, if a waft of 2nd hand smoke from someone else's lungs enveloped your face as... More

the pub has a great ambience, but the food is mediocre. The saving grace is resch's on tap. Only go there because it is convenient.

The pub has comfortable setting both out-doors and indoor. The staff are friendly and efficient. It caters for large parties as well. Our last two patronage were both parties of 10 including a child. The steaks (cook to your own taste) were good quality and even better if you go on days where there are specials on. All in all,... More

This place has become a regular meeting place for friends and work colleagues for Friday lunch. Good pub food selection and you can cook your own steaks as well. A generous salad bar which is complementary with some meal choices. The veal schnitzel, bangers and mash, beer meat pie and fish and chip are some of my favourites. The GN... More

The pub is in our neighboorhood, the building looks nice enough, wanted to go there for some time. Especially since they constantly advertise locally. But what the ads don't tell you, is that you have to cook your own. So we went there, and was presented with a large container full of raw meat. And we promptly left. I'm not... More

On Wednesdays the Great Northern Hotel holds one of the best pub quizzes I've ever been to. There are plenty of questions, special rounds and lots of opportunities to win free drinks and money. Biggest team gets a round of drinks - so call your friends and pack the quiz out. You can make your own steak too - pick... More
