This place has a very good vibe. It's hidden away in a back street and is decorated with anything beef. Have been here a few times as it's close to work and was recommended by a friend who has spent many evenings after work here drinking at the bar after a meal. The burger is great but the steaks are... More

Hidden away a little in a back street it's s lovely little find. We stopped for a quick bite and all had burgers which were delicious. Service was nice and quick. Friday night and wasn't too busy but had a nice buzz. Only disappointment for me was the lack of cocktails but other than that couldn't fault

Lovely atmostphere, service very friendly and helpful. We came as a group of 7 and every1 of us loved the food. The steak was cooked to absolute perfection. I shared a surf & turf with my husband and it came with 2 massive steaks, grilled shrimps, onion rings, chips and wine. Was absolutely yummy. Would def return here again.

Absolutely the best beef served in a calm jazzy place off the busy streets of central London by a very friendly staff

Went for dinner here on Saturday evening with a group of 14 including two children. Lovely atmosphere and everyone was very happy with their food. The staff were lovely even making time to talk to the children we had with us. Would definitely go again when in London,

We were almost the only people in the restaurant on a saturday night 6pm, nice for us, but probably not good for business? The burgers were huge and really good, good selection of drafts and almost cheap. What's not to like?

Found this place by accident and stopped for lunch. Great food and great selection of beers. Take care when ordering the burger as it is very large, there is a choice of a baby burger for those with a smaller appetite. Would certainly stop here again.

I love this place. I come here with friends 1-2 times a week at least. We often go for the welsh rarebit which is deliciously comforting food, but the burgers, steak sandwiches and prawns are also amazing. Service is always the best and it the atmosphere and decor is funky and great if you're after for something a little off... More
