“Crap!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

23 pounds for a steak and it was butterflied I.e sliced down the middle a large rock or heavy object sat on top and left on the grill till sufficiently drained of all fluids.. Fair enough half 8 get a check for a steak kitchen kicks up a fuss I hear you, but to serve utter rubbish then bill me an arm and a leg especially when I had recently been to Loch Lomond the night before payed a pound less for one of the best steaks iv ever had... Then for the server to argue with me to why I haven't said anything sooner when asked at the end was everything ok, I was appalled... To be publicly embarrassed in front of the entire restaurant, well it was almost going on 10 by this point...what will you do with a over cooked steak? Nothing, except make me wait for another and I had better plans for my night that watching my girlfriend eat whilst waiting on my food because of your mistake, so I ate it, told them it was crap, didn't want any money of the bill what so ever just that I won't be back, then he persisted to have his own say, and said that he would take it of the bill, I said no it ok, but the. Returned the bill with only 2 drinks taken off, obviously relised 23 quid was at steak and tried to pull the wool over my eyes, however we paid the full amount plus the drinks. It's a putty because its a beautiful quaint little restaurant that is very close to the real deal apart from the service and the food, of which I can't decide which is worse, and I wouldn't have wrote this if the waiter didn't boil me so much!!!! Compleatly belittled me in front of everyone... Wally .

“Good food but hard to find.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

This little gem of a restaurant is tucked away down a side street and is hard to find if you do not know the area but food and service is excellent if a bit pricy. low lights and dark decor add to the atmosphere the only downside I found were the gents toilets, they were stinking.
