Excellent food at a reasonable cost. I had scallops to start which were excellent. The steak I ordered as a large portion main course was huge and probably came in at 24oz which was too big for me to finish. It was very tasty by the way. The rest of our 6 strong party all enjoyed their food. Superb food... More

Stunning food.. My partner and I had Beef Carpaccio which was a lovely way to start our meal - delicious in fact. My partner had a fillet steak which was cooked to perfection, and I had a lamb dish which I must say is one of the nicest pieces of lamb I have tried. I would highly recommend dinning here... More

I have eaten in both the liquid lounge and restaurant and the service is first class. Food is excellent, beautifully presented, fresh and very tasteful to the pallet. The atmosphere is relaxing and decor of the highest standard. Not to forget the price is easy on the pocket. Would highly recommend both lounge and restaurant to anyone as you would... More

Think the restaurant has changed name but was really good. The place had been reccomended by a friend and heard great things about its Wednesday curry club. A group of us from work went to see what it was all about and was pleasantly surprised. What fantastic value £7.95 for curry and drink. If however you have a big appetite... More

Came in with some friends for curry night and a few drinks. The meal was reasonably priced but the service was awful! Went up to order and we were treated with disdain by the very grumpy manager. This made us feel rather uncomfortable. When each of us had finished our curry, our plates were taken away one by one while... More

Went for a family meal and chose the steaks. I had a fillet and my boyfriend and his dad had sirloin. All were cooked to perfection and delicious. Tables are a bit cramped and it is a bit darker than I prefer when eating, but it is a lovely cosy place (vaulted ceiling) and honestly, the steaks....I've not tasted better.
