The service was fantastic, and we didn't have to wait very long for drinks to be bought to us. Most of us had steak, all agreed it was fantastic (the creamy garlic mushrooms I had for starters were... More

We went here for my mums birthday. Most of us had the set menu which is a really good price. Everything was lovely, the steak was amazing. One of us had the fillet steak which unfortunately wasn't as nice as the steak on the set menu. The wine was great too!

We visited this restaurant last weekend and enjoyed the best meal we've ever tasted. The garlic chilli king prawns to start were amazing. My mouth is watering thinking about them. The steaks for the main course were just as good and the trio of desserts were delicious. We'll definitely be going back. We had a bottle of wine and also... More

My husband said the best steak he has had in a long time (rump) and my friend had T bone which I tried and was amazing. My salmon fish was succulent and very flavoursome. The service was excellent.
