The best place for a good steak - and more!

The main attraction of this place to us is the fabulous steaks, but they also offer quite a wide range of dishes, including fresh fish and vegetarian options. Everything we've tried here, in terms of food, has been first class and we have been visiting now for several years and it is consistently... read more

I am amazed at some of the good reviews for this establishment. I was served with a jacket potato that was brown inside and unappetising. The small side salad was covered in oil and had a nasty taste. I really cannot understand why I didn't send it back, except that it is awkward when out with friends.My friend said that... More

We went in a big group for a friends birthday. The service was quick. We all got our meals at similar times and the food was nice. We would definitely go back

11 of us visited mid-week for a family member's birthday. Charlotte and the other waitresses and waiter were helpful, efficient and very friendly. One diner had an allergy and was catered for with plenty of choice. Staff also made a real fuss of our youngest diner aged 11 months! There was a huge choice on the menu and special's board... More

We had booked and visited midweek but it was still full. We were shown to our table immediately but it took quite a long time to order and be served. The meal was not brilliant, I enjoyed my duck starter and the watercress but found the hand-cut chips (more like wedges) not to my liking. After we had paid we... More

All I'm going to say is this - used to visit this place really frequently at lunchtime. The food was always good, the staff fine. But had an incident here and the owner, Carly, who incidentally never identified herself as the owner at the time, couldnt have cared less. Needless to say I've never been back since. Their loss, and... More

Visited early evening and the place was pretty full ( glad we booked as advised ) its got a great atmosphere and well laid out. Of the 2 menu's available we went for the postman's menu which offered a variety of meals and very well priced with a 2 course meal for £13.95, we both went for the steak option... More
