Absolutely fresh steak was delivered in under 10 minutes for myself and my partner and was delicious with all the trimmings. Adie who attended to us today was full of bubbly character and very good manners. Will be going there again.

Now that they have a new manager. The counting house has improved 100%. It is spotless and food is great. Anyone who hasn’t been or who visited before should try it now. Such an enjoyable meal.
