Having arrived at the restaurant , we were shown to our table that I reserved. It's always best to reserve a table because there is always a chance you will be disappointed because they are always busy on an evening. The menu is straight forward and easy to read through. If you order a steak it will be done exactly... More

Best steak - cooked how I like it and how I asked for it. Fresh vegetables beautifully cooked and presented. Friendly and very efficient service, unobtrusive but attentive. Love the atmosphere and we could have a conversation without having to compete with musak!

We were recommended to this restaurant by friends, so it was our first visit. Immediate thoughts run along the lines of "blast from the past", " a trip down memory lane" and the like. If you are, like me, of mature age this impression will be very cheering and I knew I would be in for a treat. The furniture... More
