On the roundabout of Junction 38 of the M1 this bar/restaurant is a great find. Two course lunch for £10.95. Sirloin steak came with the best hand cut fat chips I have had for years. On the a la carte menu you can select your cut of meat when the chef comes out with the raw meat for you to select the size you want. Maybe next time if we call in the evening

This was our first visit but one we'd been meaning to make for a while - we weren't disappointed. When we looked on-line we got the impression that this was primarily a steak house and that had put us off on a couple of occasions when we weren't sure we wanted a red meat 'fix'. The menu however is much more extensive and varied (though it's perhaps not the greatest place for the committed vegetarian since there are slabs of raw meat floating around at regular intervals!). We ordered the lamb shank and a small fillet and everything was cooked perfectly including the side dishes of vegetables. The only thing I would criticize was that the service was a little slow when it came to taking our order. That said we'll definitely be returning and sampling more of the menu, if we can resist the steak that is!

Cant recommend the steak highly enough. You chose the cut and the way you want it cooked and they bring the whole joint to your table so that you can select the size you want.

It is then cooked to perfection!

What more could you ask for?!

Have your steak cut to the size you want :)

Only disappointment was that they don't do rump steak on the "cut your own steak" nights, and that is my favourite, but the sirloin was mouthwatering
