We visit quite regularly and have a steak every time. Always cooked to perfection- definitely our favourite restaurant for a good steak. Would definitely recommend. Lovely beefeater too, nice restaurant layout.

My hubby and daughter treated me to a birthday meal out. We enjoyed a three course meal and the service was great. The food was served well and tasted delicious. Would happily eat there again.
