First time visit to the restaurant - very nice service by main waitress - food very nice although the steak (28 day aged) came with standard frozen chips rather than anything special - would have expected something different to match the accolade attributed to the steak. Fish and chips came up large and fish was cooked well. Ambience a little... More

Second time... More

The food was average, I think it gets such a high rating as the portions are enormous, too large in my opinion. I thought the size of the Yorkshire pudding was vulgar... More

Our visit didn't get off to a very good start as there was no record of the booking made 2 weeks before. However we were asked to go into the bar area whilst the staff sorted a table out for the 9 of us. We didn't have to wait long and were seated within 10 minutes.Our drinks order was taken... More
