Beautiful extra rare chateaubriand cooked just how we like it. Travelled a long way (3 of us) from 3 different directions to rendezvous centrally for an impromptu birthday lunch.

Good quality beef steak at reasonable prices. Do a double up on the lunchtime 8oz steak set meal, and you will not be disappointed!

Porterhouse is not about variety. It's not about being all things to all people. It's about doing something simple & doing it better than anyone else. That something is Beef. 100% grass fed and naturally reared Beef.
