I recently dined with colleagues at The Press Gang and the food and service are superb. The rack of lamb was done perfectly and my dining companion mentioned that the beef tenderloin was the best he has ever had. Nice selection of wines all set in a beautiful atmosphere. Can be expensive depending on your selections but worth it!

As always the press gang offers up some great food! Oysters are always a win and the scotch menu is extensive. Highly recommended anyone to come in for a special date night, or bring clients in.

The wait staff were knowledgable and friendly. There is a wonderful selection of drinks and a very well thought out menu. I highly recommend the lamb.

My wife and I will definitely be going again.
