Went for a family celebration it was on a Monday so the place was very quiet but have to say we had the most succulent steaks, i agree the decor is maybe a little dated but can honestly say i think the food more than makes up for it, a member of our party had the mid-week special consisting of either 2 or 3 courses and her food was exceptional too.

I cannot fault the food at all at the restaurant it was amazing! However, that's where the praise ends. We went for a valentines dinner and the service was appalling. We arrived and were ignored and were eventually pointed to our table. This would have been acceptable if it was how all customers were treated but three more couples arrived after us, shown to their seats, coats taken and drinks provided all while we sat there with nothing! Bored of waiting my partner took our coats to someone and we were eventually offered drinks quarter of an hour after. What a shame as it could have been a lovely time if the service was of an ok standard at the least. Won't be rushing back anytime soon.

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.
