We were looking for somewhere for a light lunch and popped in here by chance. We had soups, sandwiches and coffees, which was very nice. However, they seem specialise in steaks, which most of the guest seemed to be having. The staff are very nice and we enjoyed our lunch. If we are ever in the area again we will definately give the steaks a try. The place has a pleasant feel.

Quick snack lunch on Easter Monday. My wife ordered Vegetarian Deluxe sandwich - roasted vegetables, mozarella and pesto. It arrived with no mozarella or pesto. Waitress's response: "It's in there somewhere", but she couldn't show us where it was lurking. Sent back. Replacement arrived. Chef had put pesto on this time but had used that famous mozarella substitute, cheddar - slipped to us without comment or apology, hoping it would go unnoticed. The reaction of the manager (maybe proprietor) when this was pointed out: a shrug of the shoulders and "It's a bank holiday. We're running out of things." Not running out of bare-faced cheek,though, apparently.

Ordered mozzarella, pesto, vegetable sandwich. No mozzarella, no pesto. Sent it back. Came back covered in cheddar. Told manager who shrugged his shoulders and declared they'd been busy. Didn't care! Don't go if you expect to be served food that's on the menu with courtesy!

Had a very nice steak there with two friends of mine, good atmosphere but quite noisy. Staff were helpful and pleasant, However do check your bill as they certainly made a mistake on ours, £50 of drinks from another table were added in error! Although I did phone up the next day and explain the situation to the south african manager, "who promised to reimburse my credit card" To this day it has never materialised. For that reason we have not and will not eat there again (date of meal (18/01/2012)

We visited last Saturday 9 March 2013 for a Friends Birthday, after reading some of the previous reviews I was a little apprehensive, although our friends are local and they love the place. I need not have worried it was lovely, service was brilliant, the staff very polite and efficient and the food amazing. Everyone bar me had Steak and it looked and tasted amazing, so they all told me, I went for Lamb Shank which again was delicious. We dropped off a Birthday Cake in the afternoon and it was brought to our table after the meal by the Staff singing Happy Birthday along with a knife to cut it and plates. All in all it was a Fabulous night and not too expensive. Thank you.
