Description
Now over 100 years old, the Log House was imported from Norway by the celebrated artist Alfred Heaton Cooper.

Steak on the Stone is a meal like no other. A meal where you have the opportunity to cook your food exactly as you like. With innovative SteakStones products, The Log House are bringing the mouthwatering versatility of this meal to you.

We hope that you enjoy this unique culinary experience.
