The fillet Steak is to die for I have never tasted anything so good, it cuts like butter and melts in your mouth. The staff are very attentive and extremely pleasant if your visiting South Shields and looking for... More

Happy hour prices were available and the food was excellent. Fillet steak was cooked exactly as I requested and was a good size. The pasta dish was probably the best tasting pasta dish... More

After walking out of the Rattler due to the appalling service the service here was second to none. Served straight away by very friendly polite waiter who was very attentive throughout. Nothing was a problem and he even made polite chit chat along the way. Food tasted great and was served quickly. Only wish we had gone here first! Definitely... More

We enjoyed two lovely meals in this restaurant. The food was very well presented and quite delicious. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. We would recommend and certainly revisit if in the area again.
