Met a few friends out for dinner, good place to catch up and enjoy dinner. One of our group was not a steak eater so there wasn't much options besides and chicken and fish dish but both we're very tasty. Staff were accommodating as we wanted to make an amendment to the chicken dish, chef was not so forth coming.... More

We've been a few times but not of late after a disappointment when the Steak arrived, not cooked as I'd ordered, it was returned and another arrived, cooked properly but the normal high quality was sadly lacking. By this time my partner was just about to finish her meal so rather than wait yet again I ate it....

Enjoyed a fantastic evening on the aka Welly Road in Northampton. I was so surprised that Northampton hosted a restaurant of such class. (No offence). All the food served on the menu is locally sourced. The food was fabulous! My steak was gorgeous, well season and cooked to my perfection. The staff too, were polite, informative and oh so smart....

Visited in the evening without reservation. Cosy interior, wonderful menu and customer service. Did not have to wait long for our steaks. Recommend sirloin and T-bone!

Attended here for a birthday meal. The place itself is quite small and I thought a bit of a wierd layout. However, vibe was good, staff were friendly and I thought it was nice you could see the grill/kitchen area from wherever you sat. I would go as far to say steak was best I've had EVER. Price was really... More

I have been here a number of times and when it comes to steaks and burgers this is the place to be. I have been here a nimber of times and have had the sirloin(absolutely bliss), rump (real quality) and their starters are really well thoughtout and compliment the main course. The service was good although we have been there... More

I loved this place! I went here for a meal with my family and loved it! I had a smoked mackerel pâté to start with and some gorgeous gluten free bread. Then I had steak (of course) which was cooked to perfection and served with some pretty decent chips too! However the star of the show was the dessert platter.... More

Second visit. Not overly increases first time. Took ages to get a drink, even then one was wrong, food was OK bar one steak which was cooked incorrect but couldn't be bothered to wait for food so ate it. Just very slow and uninspiring. Waiting staff need work, came across very inexperienced. No atmosphere. We were happy enough chattering and... More
