“Marinated fillet steak was excellent”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Went here on Saturday night, it was a place I have being wanting to try for some time. The starters were very disappointing, chorizo sausage and the beef.

Two of the party had rump steak; one was considerable better than the other. I had the marinated fillet steak, at just over £43 for the steak I was expecting it to be exceptional and it didn’t disappoint, one of the best steaks I have had in a long time, melted like butter.

The side orders were good, spinach, crushed potatoes and peas with bacon, however the chips were frozen – not really acceptable for the price.

The ambience was okay, far too dark to see the menu, luckily we sort of knew what we wanted in advance from looking at the menu on their website. However, we were unable to read the wine menu so opted for the house red! The music was so repetitive and moody.

Service was fine, nothing remarkable. I would definitely go back again but will need to save before doing so, my chuck of the bill came to just over £90!!

“Truly excellent meat and bread!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

First and foremost, I would go here just for the bread. I will hire whoever it is that makes this bread on a permanent basis to work at my home, because it is sensational! Give me 10-15 plates of this, and I'll be a happy boy!

The starters are ok- but I don't want to dwell on them, they're nothing compared to the breads and the steak.

The steak- oh the steak! We were shown a meat plate of our cut choices, and it had to be the Chateaubriand! So soft, and full of flavour, and cooked to perfection. And the peppercorn sauce and chips were the perfect accompliment. It wasn't cheap at £50 for the meat choice, but I think it was worth it- it is rare to eat something so perfectly cooked and tasty.

This has now became a regular watering hole, and I highly recommend it to anyone that:
a) Loves meat
b) Loves bread
c) Has quite a bit of spare cash to use

“Well looked after”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

My wife treated for my 40th birthday lunch, I had the sweetbreads to start and as I couldn't decide I went for the tasting plate as a main course. I was really pleased with the starter but the main dish stole the show.

Staff were great especially the manager who couldn't do enough to make sure it was a memorable occassion.

I can't say I've visited the other steak houses listed in other reviews but can honestly say that mine were cooked to perfection and by far the tastiest and best I have had.

“It's 90% about service”
Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Longish review this, so bear with me. Ordered a cocktail and wine, no starter and steak. Wine (red) was a smidge too warm, but they put up with every peccadillo, with a wine bucket, more water etc etc

Ordered a rib eye medium. Came medium rare. Was poking it, and a waiter, who had not dealt with me at all, saw I was poking, took charge and I had a recooked steak, and when that wasn't right, a completely new meal. Now, this is what should happen; how many times does it spontaneously? Loved the service - will go back

Steak tasted great as well. Top quality meat.
