Read the reviews on trip advisor and decided to give it a go after 17 days of rice and bones we needed a meat fix! We had a rib and a fillet steak, very nice indeed, fresh veg including asparagus and we had a nice bottle of Chilean Merlot. They previous 2 nights we had noodles and spent less than £3 for both of us, so we pushed the boat out tonight , two steaks a a bottle of wine cost £86 but it was worht it.

Stay away from the tap beer, given how badly they pour beer (they can't) you have to wonder about how they manage the beer / clean lines etc. If you like your beer with a massive head that gets poured off in to another glass and then topped up with the flat warm beer from a previous pour off then this is the place for you. Steaks are expensive, claimed to be from Australia, pretty lacking in flavour if they are, sides are crazy small. "Creamy mash potato" hasn't seem a dairy product ever and is so hard it crumbles! Staff try but lack training and the manager is too busy sitting around with his friends to do anything about it.

... when I asked why they had served my grilled steak on a stone-cold plate!

The plate was taken away and then the food was returned on a plate barely above body temperature. The waitron had no need of a waitron's cloth with which to handle it

These people - either side of the kitchen door - simply do not understand what basic food prep, cookery and service entails.

Decent quality imported Australian beef ineptly dealt with and no offer of explanation.

Not good value and I'll not be going back.

Some food excellent some poorly executed. If you are a wings eater pass on theirs. However steaks good and priced well. The atmosphere and employees are excellent. I would return.

Did not eat here, only had drinks. Was walking around when we saw this and knew we had to stop in for a drink to support a fellow Canadian!
