Visited with my friend for steak night and we loved it. Lots of food for the money! Can be quite slow service when busy however the waitress was lovely and kept chatting to us which made the wait seem shorter.

We have been a few times and as this popular restaurant gets very busy we recommend booking an early evening reservation. Always delicious food and a friendly welcome, but not for you if you are short on patience. Hope to be back soon.
