Booked early for Friday night as we know how busy it gets. Arrived at 7 to find we were the only ones there. Staff welcoming as always and showed us to our table. Knowing the options here, we opted to go straight for main courses. I chose the steak/ribs and my husband had the lamb. My steak was lovely, however... More

We visited this restaurant last weekend and enjoyed the best meal we've ever tasted. The garlic chilli king prawns to start were amazing. My mouth is watering thinking about them. The steaks for the main course were just as good and the trio of desserts were delicious. We'll definitely be going back. We had a bottle of wine and also... More

Went here on Saturday for the first time to celebrate my birthday, but it will not be the last. Excellent food. My husband said the best steak he has had in a long time (rump) and my friend had T bone which I tried and was amazing. My salmon fish was succulent and very flavoursome. The service was excellent. We... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal her on Saturday. T bone steak was the best my husband had had in along time, and my fillet was amazing. Both had been cooked exactly as we had requested. Lovely place with great decor, music and nice friendly staff.

The food was freshly cooked, hot and very good. The service was timely and the staff were friendly. Great ambience, quiet when we arrived at 7pm but full when we left at 9pm. We felt the price was right too, good value for money and not over priced as many restaurants can be. This was our first visit but it... More

Had a fantastic meal here on a quiet Tuesday evening. Restaurant is small and cosy with lovely decor. Excellent service with one young lady serving drinks, taking food order and bringing food out. Would definitely recommend.

I have been here many times over the past year and have always left raving about the food. I told my family about it and decided to celebrate my aunty and mum's birthday here. Unfortunately this time there was nothing to rave about. The main course went wrong (completely missed my mums order) and rather than apologising and sorting it... More
