15 of us celebrated a late works Christmas Dinner. We pre-ordered. All the food was served hot and extremely tasty. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. The Henry VIII steak was excellent. You hardly needed your knife! Everyone enjoyed their meals. Would definitely recommend and go again.

This restaurant is an absolute gem! The food was out of this world, the service superb and the prices were so reasonable. It is not the last time we are eating here and we have started to tell friends and family about this wonderful place. Highly recommendable.

As a regular here I have to say that the decor and the menu is a little dated but the quality of the food is always good and the prices are very reasonable. There is a set price menu for part of the week which is truly amazing value! If you want a good steak cooked to your liking then this is the place to come. The staff are friendly and attentive too.

Booked a meal, thought we were getting the christmas meal but told that we weren't allowed the christmas meal as we hadn't pre- booked. Asked if it was possible to still have this option and told that the chef only prepared the right amount of meals for the evening even though having looked at both menus there were items that were identical. Food was average and dated in presentation and there was no option of what you had to accompany your meal it was veg or nothing and not all of the meals went with veg. Service was poor due to the poor waitress being run off her feet and decaf coffee was appalling. When bill arrived it was not split down. Just a total for the bar bill and at no point did we see a price list for drinks. My husband worked there in the eighties and to be honest it's still stuck there.
