Nice food although over priced in my opinion. Service was ok but could be more attentive. Decoration was badly dated, felt like I had walked on to the set of a 1980s sitcom. Would go back if the pricing policy was reconsidered.

For a long time this restaurant has been well known for its steaks but now the menu has been expanded to include a wider range of dishes. Good food and good service - what more is there to say.

I don't think so, though they will adjust what they offer if you ask ( I can't eat wheat, onions, garlic etc) so it's possible to eat there - it's a good for fish/steak and chips, so if you don't mind eating chips as your... More
