My girlfriend had been here once before and recommended it to me. To start we shared the Home-made bread with a selection of butters & oils, and the waitress kindly brought enough warm bread for 2 people. There was rosemary butter, balsamic and olive oil, pesto oil and one other butter.
For the main course, I had the 6oz Cote de Boeuf (rib eye on the bone), potato dauphinoise & café de Paris butter. The cost was for £15, when it was usually £23. The steak was huge, the potatoes were delicious, but the sauce was not to my liking - it included anchovies and capers, and, not being a big seafood fan, I had to scrape this off into a napkin. Serves me right for not asking what the sauce entailed!
My girlfriend enjoyed the Pan-fried chicken breast served with fondant potato and a creamy mushroom and tarragon. The name of the house wine escapes me now, but it was good quality. We didn't sample the desserts this time.
Overall the service was superb, the staff friendly, and there was a great atmosphere due to a live band playing acoustic covers of popular hits.
In my opinion, without the early bird discount, the food would have been overpriced. I will definitely come back though, as I am interested to try the Sunday roast.
