“Best ever steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Myself and my husband have just returned home after an evening out here and we were blown away by the staff, service and overall atmosphere and food. The steak was the best I've ever eaten and the prices are brilliant. We then enjoyed the homemade cheesecake which is an absolute must if u visit. Would recommend to anyone 100%. Looking forward to my next visit xxx

“A Birthday celebration.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

My wife and I have been meaning to visit the Cattlemans since they opened last November and last night for my wife's birthday we did, along with our daughter and her boyfriend. What an excellent decision. The welcome we received was second to none Dave and Rachel (the owners) are two of the most welcoming people you could wish to meet, nothing was too much trouble.
Now the food! two of us had T Bone steaks an, two of us had Fillet on a stone all the steaks were quality meat. the T Bones were cooked exactly as ordered the Fillets we cooked ourselves on hot stones. This is done at the table ( highly recommended), what a brilliant idea. We also had Blue Cheese sauce (which I personally recommend fantastic) Diane sauce and, Peppercorn sauce all of which were delicious.
so to recap.
Welcoming attentive Hosts,
Quality ingredients.
A novel way of cooking your own steak at the table.
A large variety of steaks to choose from.
A reasonable selection of wines.
And all at reasonable prices.
all in all a superb evening was had by all.
We will most definitely be going back and, taking our friends with us
Well done Dave and Rachel this is what Paignton needs.
