“Good food but very pricey”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Nice location by the moored boats with very good food - but you pay too high a premium for the location

“Amazing! If you like a steak come here”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

Steaks are amazing. We go nearly every second night of our holidays because we love it so much. I would recommend everyone to visit. Not to many options for starters but you won't be leaving hungry because the steaks are very generous and melt in your mouth!! The staff are very friendly and attentive.

“Very average”
Reviewed April 6, 2010

We got a table on Easter Friday evening which should have got us worried in the first place as every other restaurant we tried was full. Everything was average. Nothing really dreadful but then again nothing to write home about. The starters arrived promptly but were both luke warm and had to be returned. We then had two great steaks, very well cooked but then served with luke warm jacket potatoes. There is little choice in the way of vegetables or side dishes. Great steaks but mediocre service and atmosphere. Not a bad meal, just not great for the price.

“Watch your bags!!”
Reviewed December 25, 2009

With a family home in the area we have eaten in this restaurant on dozens of occasions and have always enjoyed a great steak. Sadly on one night recently my mother had her bag stolen from within the restaurant. I appreciate that these things can happen anywhere but despite her being a regular customer of the restaurant the staff's refusal to call the police and their insistence on the bill being paid before she could leave the restaurant to call the police from a call box just beggars belief.

Whilst I acknowledge their good steaks i cannot recommend the restaurant for their treatment of 2 women who were robbed on their premises.
