Came here a couple of days ago on a Monday for the steak night offer. Starter and a steak for 12 quid. Upgraded to the fillet steak and wasn't disappointed. Starter was decent as well. Already looking at going again in a couple of days. Bar area nice and cosy. Restaurant tastefully decorated. Nice overall environment.

We stopped to have desserts which we very much enjoyed. The feeling of pleasure turned to disgust when I went to the disabled toilet. There were legions of flies on the inside window ledge plus some flying around. I was revolted.
