Service was a little sketchy , some staff were embroiled in conversations as opposed to looking after customers- other staff more professional and attentive-wait was longer than expected from placing order, waiting for meal to turn up - even paying the bill needed multiple requests. The food was faultless though so full marks to the chef.

What an amazing meal. This is the place famous for cutting your own steak - but don't just have steak. I have the best rack of lamb I've ever eaten here and my partner was still talking about his steak a week later. We've already booked our next visit

We went to this pub recently, which was empty inside when we arrived at 4.45 pm. We wanted to eat inside but told because there were seven of us they couldn't accommodate us, therefore we said we would eat outside as it was a hot day. I found it quite strange that the menu for outside was different with less... More

This is one of our fave places to eat, we love the fillet steak! However, this time we were disappointed with a few things: 1. Service was very rushed even though we had a reservation. Literally no sooner had our starter plates been cleared than the mains were delivered! And these are hearty portions. Really could do with at least... More

This place has changed hands so many times and when we tried it again after along break yet again it was all change. We were left on our own most of the time, the place was empty and lacked any atmosphere. We were disappointed with the food and it was not cheap.

And brought back menu if you choose steak you can see the steak before it's cooked they bring it out on a wooden platter and you say how big or how small a piece you would like and then... More

We visited for my partners birthday, The staff were quite rude and I wasn't keen on the restaurant as a whole- weird lay out. Food was average, A little expensive for what you get. Wouldn't return.

We booked a table for 5pm and the waitress came out to tell us that our table was ready even though the rest of the party hadn't arrived she was very polite and lovely and said there was no rush which was nice, inside it was very welcoming and modern and cosy, the only thing I didn't like was we...
