Good food and ambience. History of the place is interesting. The service varied depending on servers. The gentleman we met this morning (27/May) who suggested we go to the Manx musuem and loaned us some umbrellas was very helpful. He was the most polite and helpful person we met on the Isle of Man.

Went for the steaknight. £25 for 2 steaks including a bottle of house wine. The steaks come with either a portion of sauce or a choice of side dish. For a full meal allow another £5 for 2 further side dishes, eg. veg and potatos. Still, with a couple of drinks each and one of us having a dessert it still only came to a total of less than £50 which is very good value for the IOM. Couldn't fault the food at all.
The only negative observation was an obvious shortage of waiting on staff. Quite long waits and sometimes no evidence at all of a waiter! When we did see her she was very pleasant and helpful. A shame really, because this place must be doing well enough to employ another waiter, especially for popular nights such as Wednesday Steak Night clearly is. Will go again though (and see if the waiter problem has improved!)

We dined here on Wednesday 'Steak Night' and the food was terrifically good 'value for money' for the quality of the food on offer. Highly recommended!!

Called in, with my wife, on a Wednesday evening for their 'special' steak night. £25 for two steaks, two side dishes AND a bottle of the house wine (which was more than acceptable). The place was packed to the rafters but it was superbly organised by the bar/restaurant manager (Haylay). There was a slight delay but that was to be expected given the numbers present. The steaks were cooked exactly as we asked and we will certainly go again.
