What a brilliant evening spent with fantastic food and excellent hosts. Staff friendly and attentive, fillet steak cooked to perfection, each mouthful "moreish". Wonderful vibe and fantastically friendly owner/chef. Will definately be back

Perfect place for steaks. Had the best fillet steak of my life there. The menu is easy: Steaks, chops, fries, salad. And then there are some great desserts: the apple crumble is amazing.
