Very good place to eat especially if you like meat. Had 2 meals here and both very good. Best steak I had in a fortnight. Good service and reasonably priced . Will return next year

Terrible. Service was 90 mins. With no explanation or apology. (If anything, it was our fault for turning up!). Restaurant was half-full at best, but obviously the Owners didn't want to 'waste' money on staff - the very people that build a restaurant's trade! Twice during the evening, the place was flooded with acrid smoke. No apology. A waitress explained... More

I am very sorry that the standard of service was not up to standard, unfortunately our senoir waiter was admitted to hospital on 18 Sept and we were already a staff member done as a result of illness.

8 of us ate here, none of us enjoyed it, slow service, bland tasteless food, and they got food and drinks order wrong. Then had to ask three times for the bill, which never arrived, so had to go to the till to pay. Avoid.

We went here while on holiday last week. Menu was promising but the time we waited for our food was really not good. However once the food arrived it was excellent. Four of us shared the platter for four and the food was delicious especially the pulled pork.
