As a vegetarian I shouldn't have expected much from this very meat orientated restaurant, but most restaurants will offer something more interesting, so I settled on a starter with two side dishes. The garlic bread was tasty and an ample serving, the sauteed mushrooms were...More

We booked this venue a couple of weeks in advance. The service from start to finish was absolutely appalling. We were greeted by a bar full of dirty glasses, nevertheless we ordered some drinks. Apparently they couldn't serve a coupe of glasses of wine because...More

Spur of the moment decision for lunch for 9 people. GBP 9.99 for 2 courses on NYE seemed too good to be true. The starters were OK. To be honest the starters which needed less cooking were best - the mushroom croquettes were pretty tasteless....More

A new and modern steakhouse style restaurant serving the best steaks available then dry aged to perfection. Along with an abundance of fresh seafood and other great meals on offer. You wont feel rushed either as we pride ourselves in making your visit as relaxed as possible yet our professional staff are always on hand. The new smart classy interior blends well with the fantastic menu on offer. Our bespoke Desserts are a work of art and taste even better than they look! We offer two fantastic courses for lunchtimes Monday to Saturday priced at a mouth watering £9.95. Our Sunday lunches use only the best produce and are individually priced
