We were a part of 8 and hadn't booked a table so were really chuffed when they quickly pulled two tables together and seated us. I shared the mussels with a friend and they were exceptional. So good in fact that I could barely eat...More

Could do with an update, as it felt a bit dated. There was a small problem with my wife’s starter as we didn’t realise that the mushrooms came with a cream sauce the waitresses offer an alternative starter and was not charged for the mushrooms....More

It's not 'help yourself' but adequate enough for £9.99. Tender beef, perfectly cooked vegetables, a large Yorkshire and horseradish sauce. Exactly as it should be. Comfortable venue. Polite staff.
