Wakefields best no messing about great food at realistic prices. The steak is the best and sourecd locally, service is usually fantastic considering most dishes are freshly prepared and only cooked to order. If only Wakefield had a curry house that served food of this quality......keep dreaming.

“Probably the best fillet steak I have ever had!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2009

This review is coming from a lover of fine food, and I had the fillet steak with a peppercorn sauce, and it was amazing. I oredered it medium-rare (which is the best way to eat steak in my humble opinion) at it came perfect! my knife slipped through the meat like butter.

Not forgetting the chips, which were home made chunky wedges, with onion rings and it all was perfect. I am often dissapointed with expensive resteraunts and steak houses not delivering to my high standards, but no faults in the food what so ever.

This is not a cheap place to eat mind you, and unless you catch the early bird or set menu its going to cost you.

The waitor got a couple of drinks wrong, and there was no actual drinks available to what was on the menu, but other than that no fault with the service.

Atmosphere is...cosy.

All in all, it gets a thumbs up from me.
