Our meal was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient from drinks in Jacks Bar through to the end of the meal. Atmosphere was good. Thoroughly enjoyed the Bread with Venetian dip. Fillet steak was excellent quality and the sides were really good too - crispy...cauliflower stands out here. No room for dessert I'm afraid but overall a lovely evening. Look forward to next time!More

My wife and I ate here after reading the great reviews on trip advisor. A nice cozy steakhouse where the tables are spaced far enough apart where you feel comfortable and you can't hear others conversations. The service was excellent; the restaurant bar did not...have the gin I wanted for a martini so he went up to the hotel bar to get it. We started with the dressed crab appetizer which was fresh and excellent. for dinner I had the venison medallions and my wife had the ribeye steak. Both were cooked perfectly and very tasty. The fresh bread was hot out of the oven. The waiter was very attentive without being intrusive. He certainly made the dining experience to be extra special. Considering the quality of the food and the service the prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a great night out.More

Loved the vibe in this classy basement restaurant, quite dim and dramatic, but enough light at each table. The staff are uniformly excellent - knowledgeable and just the right amount of attentiveness and chat. The food and wine are also superb. I had the scallops,...then the venison, which was just about the best I've ever tasted, so succulent. It's not the cheapest place in town, but you don't feel short-changed.More

We didn’t take our cars however a few car parks within easy walking distance to hotel. I would speak to hotel first to see what car parks they have deals with as this would be a lot cheaper.
