“Great steaks at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I wrote a review back in July 2012, saying that the food was great but that we had had a bad experience due to badly behaved customers. After a return visit last night, I feel that I should re-review the restaurant in a more positive light.

Although very busy, we had an excellent meal, with perfectly cooked steaks. The wine is still inexpensive and very tasty and overall, the whole party enjoyed themselves. It is very good value, even though side dishes are mainly extra.

Remember to book in advance!

“Even vegetarians would be welcome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Fundamentally, if your not a lover of all thing red meat then your somewhat limited on the menu choice. However if your an out and out carnivore that makes T Rex look like a muffin munching wimp then this is the place to come. It is without doubt a temple to all things cow!
And all things cow are done exceptionally well!
The staff are great, even to the point of possibly being the friendliest in Sheffield, nothing is to much trouble.
I tagged along on my sons birthday and let the side down by eating the "chicken sandwich" and not doing the steak option.
I wanted something light.
Mistake..... I was stuffed as the portions are, shall we say, satisfying!
We will return.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

i went here last night for my birthday meal after reading the reviews on here, the service was very good and very friendly the staff even gave me a balloon for my birthday..i ordered the 12 oz rib eye steak, medium rare, this came just as i asked and was cooked to perfection , the meat was highly salted ,which is the reason i gave food 4 stars and not 5,but overall the experience was excellent and i will be returning to tempter to eat the 30 oz steak , IF YOU WANT NICE STEAK IN SHEFFIELD GO HERE !
