Steak Experts - Yep

This place is a bit of a walk from Burnt Pine main street and they call themselves the Steak Experts so I put them to the test with a 450gm T-Bone. It was perfectly cooked to order and was very nice. Whilst the steak is not as good quality as Norfolk Blue, Barney Duffey's is much cheaper and easier... read more

This restaurant is a very short drive from the middle of Burnt Pine towards the airport. We left our booking details on the board at the front of the restaurant, which seems customary on the island. My husband had ribs, which were lovely and tender (and accompanied by a fresh garden salad) and I had a chicken dish. The accompanying... More

I would not be likely to return. Not all menu items are available. This can happen anywhere of course, but a warning at some point which items on the menu are not available or seasonal only would be most helpful. Ambience? The faux tudor exterior seems tired and run down and the interior is worse. My partner's mother recommended this... More

Quaint little place with great tasting ribs. The husband had the seafood chowder as a starter and couldn't help raving about it.

We enjoyed a beautifully cooked rib eye steak with fresh salad and baked spud so much on our first visit that we returned for the same on our last night on the Island. The chef, Paul, has owned the restaurant for 7 years and took the time to chat about life on Norfolk. Paul's menu also includes ribs and ribs/chicken... More

My two friends and I had dinner here one night, they both had the ribs which were lovely and tender. I had the local eye fillet and it was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. Dessert was the banana crepe which was lovely. Waitress was very friendly and chef Paul even came and sat down and chatted to us after... More

Waitress lovely lady. Meals were small and over priced for what you got. Found others better value for money. We were a group of 3 and only 1 other couple in there, was surprised how long it took for so few people in the place. My Dad had been years ago on several occasions that's why we went, he said...

... for dinner (by NI standards) and the fish dish was EXCELLENT! The restaurant decor is a little dated but this was a very good evening out. Don't be put off by the outward appearance.
