“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Would just like to thank the staff members for there exceptional service. Food was nice and well priced, also thanks to the waiter that ran out to give me my phone after I left it behind he saved me from having a very bad day.

“Lovely Staff, Good Atmosphere, Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

The first thing I noticed when I arrived was how helpful and polite the staff were. They were willing to answer any questions, and treated us like friends, and they seem like they enjoy their job.
The second thing is the atmosphere; all the little things stuck on the walls provide good conversation starters, and are just plain interesting to look at. This restaurant knows what theme it wants to convey, and it does it well.
The last thing is the food, which is always brought out in a timely manner.Every time my family has dinner here, the food is always very nice, and it's clear the kitchen staff take great care, especially with special requests, and making sure the food is fresh and hot. I've never had a bad meal there yet.
One thing I especially enjoy is the mudcake, it's to die for. The curly fried are also a refreshing take on the more traditional kind.
For the quality of food received, the prices are fairly reasonable, and that's a very important thing for any restaurant.

In short:This is a place that clearly cares about its customers, and it really shows. Great place to go out with friends and family.

“Breathtakingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

My steak was tender, juicy and thick and the venue is spacious and home-style in décor which made for a pleasant lunch.

“Best steak ever !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

This was a real surprise as we chose the restaurant by it's odd name but were served the best steak ever, tender and tasty cooked to perfection.
We arrived early and were one of only 3 tables occupied although more people arrived after us.
The service was prompt and very friendly drinks order taken and served correctly and promptly.
Waitress came with the meal and returned after a suitable length of time to check we were 'happy with your meal'. There was so much on the plate there was no room for desert and we were thanked for our customer on leaving. If ever we were back there we would use the restaurant again so far we have not had such a good steak again.

“Disappointed, not the usual hogs breath service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Steak was bordering on cold, and general food quality was lacking compared to previous dining experiences.
