“Great steak”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Had dinner here on a Sunday evening. Booked a table and whilst it was relatively quiet when we arrived it soon filled up. We decided against a starter but all had steak. Fillet and sirlions were all cooked as requested and a good size. We had the skin on chips and shared onion rings. Desserts were also lovely with generous portions. Staff were friendly and polite enough. Basic interior, seating and lighting but we went for a good steak and that's what we got.

“Lovely food, rude staff”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Me and my 5 firends went to this place for a coffee and waffles on sunday, which I would highly recommend if the stuff was nice. As I walked into the restauruant and had a look if my friends have arrived I heard ' what are you looking for?' withough 'hi' or 'how are you'. The waitress confused the orders, which is not an issue, but the fact she didn't apologise, just went away with-not-our-food seemed quite odd. She was really unpleasent while paying as well.

“Tasty food with a nice atmosphere”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We visited the smoke stack as a group of 7 20-something's as somewhere to relax with good food and a drink before the theatre, and I have to say we weren't disappointed. The atmosphere as you walk into the smoke stack is warm and relaxed, with a few tables full (pretty good at 5pm) and good food on the tables. The menu had a good choice (we mostly chose off the pre-theatre menu), and staff were helpful and knowledgable about the food. Generally the service was attentive without being obtrusive, although there were a few times we had to ask for a drink or a side that had been forgotten. It was nice that our waitress asked us if we had a show to catch, which we did. On the whole it was a nice evening where the food was the star.
