This is a fairly standard carvery at lunch time. There is a good choice and food is well cooked. The service is excellent, both those serving food and staff at the bar. The supplier of each item is clearly displayed.

Quality steak cooked to perfection, with all the trimmings, promptly served by smiling waiting staff in a lovely well stocked bar - will definitely return

This is an amazing place, with good ambiance and nice staff. At Friday night this place is on fire and a must visit place for bachelor. Its not very expensive and worth visit one, but only on weekends.
