Wife and I visited last weekend- service was very welcoming and attentive- we were made to feel valued. We both chose steaks and they were cooked to perfection- the taste was exceptional. Starters. French onion soup & a Caesar Salad - perfect. Pricey but the taste difference justifies this.

Went with a friend who had eaten at the restaurant before. He booked two seats at the bar upstairs which was a great spot to eat. I can't say what the main room downstairs was like. We both started with the French Onion soup which was tremendous, so rich. I followed that with a Rib Eye steak which was cooked... More

If you are looking for a good steak meal I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The team were lovely; they took the time to talk through the menu with a friend who has a wheat allergy and helped us to select some great wines; the service was exceptional overall. The food came quite quickly and the steak was one of... More

Bit strange to put a review on somewhere we haven't actually eaten at yet but that was poor planning on our part because we didn't book even though we were recommended the place by numerous friends. On calling in on spec and disappointingly being told were fully booked, we did enjoy the pleasure of being shown around we will definitely... More

Booked for the early bird special; £15 for steak before 6.30pm and it was very nice. Good choice of starters too. The cheese souffle was lovely. Nice setting, service and coffee.

Meeting up with some friends, so we decided to try out some of the Jan offers...then we noticed that there was a deal here....I don't think this one is limited to Jan...winner! We all had the blue cheese soufflé to start...delicious and then on to the deal. £15 gets you sliced steak, fries, peppercorn sauce, garnished with a mushroom and... More
