Haven't been here for a few years to eat. Day off prompted lunch, which I must say, my steak and caramelised onion ciabatta was awesome....! Pleasant service, attentive, but not too much, cooked fresh, so not fast food, but worth waiting for. Will be back.

We live locally so have made multiple visits for Sunday lunch. The last time we came it was very disappointing. The beef was tough and the overall dinner was cold. We've not been back since.

Been here a few times. Always good for a steak and a few drinks. Nice atmosphere and also good for Sunday dinner. Plenty of seafood on offer and a few specials too. Booking needed sometimes not others.

Booked a table for 2pm and got there a little early and was told we go go straight to our table if we wanted but we probably wouldn't be able to order until 2. Which was fine we got a drink and we're shown to our table. Surprisingly, 10 minutes to two we were asked if we were ready to... More

A last minute decision to go out, rang and booked a table, but had to be in ordered and seated before 9.30. Ordered a bottle of Kaiken malbec 2015 reserve (Argentina) Well worth paying the extra for this wine, which proved interesting, rich with a variety of notes. My husband and I both went for the rib eye. Both were... More

Was a midweek January evening and so was nearly empty. Waitress was super friendly and helpful, making us feel extremely welcome. I had baked Brie to start and lamb shank for main - big portion sizes and very tasty. My partner had the seafood starter and Thai green hake for main. He loved his too. Neither of us had room...

Great atmosphere and the most amazing food. Only complaint I had was the lack of chocolate on the desert menu, however on request of something chocolaty the chef soon sorted us out so it does pay to ask. In the end no complaints just praise, you'll love it here!

Thank Richard C
