We visit quite regularly and have a steak every time. Always cooked to perfection- definitely our favourite restaurant for a good steak. Would definitely recommend. Lovely beefeater too, nice restaurant layout.

Took my son and husband here today for dinner. Food was lovely. I had Chicken Melt which is breast of chicken with bacon cheese and BBQ sauce. It's served with triple fried chips, salad and coleslaw and really enjoyed it. BBQ sauce was nice and tangy and my salad was beautifully fresh and crisp in a lovely french dressing. The... More

We visited during lunchtime the restaurant was quite busy. Food was nice - service not so great. Have been going for years service seems to slip each time!

My hubby and daughter treated me to a birthday meal out. We enjoyed a three course meal and the service was great. The food was served well and tasted delicious. Would happily eat there again.

Steaks amazing, puddings good but treacle pudding would be nice. Only fly in ointment was my friend cannot eat onions or garlic and despite the waiter checking the salad a small piece of onion had made it in. But apart from that really good.

We have eaten here several times recently because it is so good. The last few times we have eaten off the fixed price menu. I love the prawn cocktail starter. My husband loves the cheese and bacon burger. I have had the spicy chicken burger, which is delicious, the smoky paprika chicken & mushroom risotto are also good too. Its... More

Had quite a nice meal; service was good. I was seated near the kitchen grill area which I wouldn't recommend - from time there was an unpleasant fishy smell (presumably when they were grilling salmon). While I love fish (though didn't order salmon on this occasion), I hate fishy smells. The other negative bit was that I felt my chips... More
