We visited here with friends at the weekend and it was very busy but well worth the wait. The starter was delicious, I had the nachos for one, my hubby had the scallops and it was gorgeous. We all had steaks for our main and they were cooked to perfection just as we'd asked. The main came with so many extras and we were full to bursting after. We had a few cocktails too as a treat. The waitress assigned to us was brilliant, so friendly and we had a good laugh with her, such a nice atmosphere and such lovely food. Would deffo go here agin.

We are trying new restaurants regularly but this one provide a constant quality for the meat. Service may vary from time to time depending on ratio customers/waiters but by and large it is nice.
Tables and seating is confortable. From the menu, it is possible to order a small steak at reasonable price with the same delicious salad and potato as the bigger ones. Whine not more expensive that aroud at the mailbox.
Fairly good value (quality and ambiance) for the money spend.
This is worth very good for a steak house and excellent for this generally overpriced area.

I came here with my family after my boyfriend had graduated hoping for a nice meal to celebrate. The service was good however when our starters came i found a hair in mine and so was took back to be re made. (That was enough to put me off my food altogether) When the waitress bought my second starter over, I found yet again another small black hair in my food! I was absolutely gobsmacked ! once is bad but twice is outrageous! At this point I was totally put off my food and could not eat my main course. Just extremely disappointed as i am a waitress myself this type of error is unacceptable!

The waitress explained the manager would come over to speak to me however I never saw the manager once!

I dont like to complain however this is truly a disappointment.

I went here with four other people and it was lovely. The restaurant and atmosphere are really nice and the food was great! Everyone who had steak really enjoyed it and it was cooked perfectly. Someone did have the ribs though and didn't think much of them. I would definitely come here again.
