Went with my daughter for an early Mothers Day treat. Had the Grill Combo and the Scampi finishing with an Eton Mess Sundae and a lovely latte to finish. The food was superb and the service was great. We will defiantly be returning!

We've dined here on several occasions. Amazing value for money and the food is always great. I love the atmosphere in this place, and the staff are always friendly. They do a delicious steak!

Dear 410alastairs, Firstly I would like to apologise for the bad experience you had with us on Sunday. We were extremely busy all day and had a lot of large bookings throughout the day.

Really the helpings they gave us would have fed 3 people easily - so easy... More
