“Lovely”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

have been trying to get booked here for a few months. Well worth the wait. The staff were attentive but not intrusive and the food was excellent. They have a section of food called stone grilled where they bring you your meat on a very very hot stone and you can cook it to your desired taste. The stone stays hot way after the meat had been consumed. Didn't have the pudding as way to full up on the mains. but if anything like the mains it will be delicious. Have already promised to take the husband as went with friends. Highly recomment

“A stone-grill MUST!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

The stone-grills are amazing! Offering Beef, Lamb, Chicken and Seafood, this is a great way to eat! The sides and desserts are also enjoyable.
Pricing is very fair and the ambience is welcoming and comfortable.
A very pleasant dining experience!

“Meal was expensive for just average”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

I've been here for breakfast and lunch before and found the food good and service excellent. So we tried it for dinner. There are a lot of choices and the waiter spent a long time at the table explaining it all. Too long. It was a bit annoying. The platter was good. Could have had some more bread on it.
There was no child's menu and that would have been ordering a little easier.
The hot stone for cooking was not for me. It didn't really add to the meal but actually took away from it.
The food overall was good. Well cooked, nicely presented. My steak came over cooked and lacked a little flavour but the salad was fresh and tasty. The meal was large.
Good service but we were sat right in front of the bar which is not great seating since the place was not full and meant your conversation could be overheard by the staff. (not that it was that interesting). Pretty expensive for pretty run of the mill food.
I'd go again for brunch but not dinner.

“Stone grill a great winters night out.”
Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Went with friends and we all enjoyed stone grill meal. I had venison which was tender. Great service. We also go in for coffees and some Sunday music afternoons. Thoroughly enjoyable.

“Excellent food, friendly staff.”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We found the staff try really card to satisfy. The food is top quality, too. One has to decide whether to do the "stone grill" option (i.e. cook the meat yourself on a very hot stone at the table) or let the chef cook your meat or fish for you. Personally, having tried the stone grill, I'll use the chef's services in future - its more relaxing, I think.
