Fantastic food and the best steak I have ever tasted. You get to choose from 4 cuts (Rump, Rib-eye, Sirloin and fillet. This all comes with toppings such as onion rings and a sauce. I chose the red wine and mushroom sauce that really compliments a medium-rare steak. The stake was cooked to perfection and everything about the meal was... More

Love how the steak is brought out to you to pick your own cut. Charged exactly to the penny! Starter was lovely with exception of the soup. (Minestrone). Dessert was to die for, especially if you have a sweet tooth like me! Lovely welcomed feeling as you walk in! Overall 9.5/10 if I was to rate it.

Turned up for lunch and was told (on the hottest of days) that we could only have sandwiches outside and were passed a grubby paper menu. The bar staff were very unhelpful and wouldn't even serve us at the bar. There was no one else in the pub and we were still told to order drinks through a hatch if... More

Arrived unbooked after a morning at the Yorkshire sculpture park selected from a quick scan of trip advisor before setting off. Although 2 parties were going on the 2 of us were seated straight away. We were told we'd need to be done in an hour which suited us as we were hungry. Was pleased to see a decent cask... More

Our visit here was better than I anticipated. We had been meaning to try this place for food for a while and had heard mixed reviews, so wanted to see for ourselves. We couldn't fault it, we had a lovely meal. There were 4 of us, all had starters, all of which were delicious. Then 2 had steaks and the... More

After a prolonged discussion about what we were going to eat for tea, I persuaded my husband to get his wallet out and take me here for our two year wedding anniversary. We hadn't booked, we like to live life on the edge, but the lovely lady told us that there would only be a half an hour wait. No... More
