“Good Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Highkly recomended by Manager at Auldington stating best steaks in town. I disagree. The steaks were OK. The choice was OK. The service was good. Reminded me of an upmarket Hogbreath. Would suit many, but I eat out most nights for business, so a little harder to please. Price reasonable

“Not the best steakhouse in town, that's for sure”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

My first visit in over a year. The oysters with parmesan and chilli were delicious and to die for. Then salad bar is ordinary and better suited to a cheap pub. No imagination at all used by the restaurant. The steak was okay but not stunning, but the mushroom and bacon sauce had about 2 pieces of mushroom in it. The water served at the table was not filtered and tasted of chlorine. I would not go back. Its like a McDonalds but they sell steak. The place is full of people so other people must like it a lot. It is over priced.

“Poor Service - Good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Steak was great, however staff didn't know which cuts of steak are locally sourced, something noted in the menu as a possibility for a certain cuts. Couldn't recommend a good local Pinot Nior which is what the region in noted for.
It was a very busy night but a number of people had problems getting the tables they had booked, if you go on a Saturday night book early, then hope you don't still need to wait half an hour for a table.

“Good family style restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

My husband and I went to a steak restaurant and ate duck! And it was very good although my serve was a little small. The restaurant was almost full the evening we went, however the service coped very well. There is a salad bar with a small area for hot vegetables, but neither looked very apertising and we opted not to try. We drank a bottle of Pipers Brook Pinot Gris at $36 per bottle. Our B&B had kindly provided us with a 10% discount voucher, which brought our total bill to $80. This is probably an ideal restaurant for groups or families with big apetites.
