Went lunchtime midweek. Steaks were all nicely cooked, with excellent chip-shop style chips. Sausage and Mash was tasty and a huge plateful. Very basic décor, and service can be a bit iffy, If you like steak, give it a try

Went here for a birthday last night the staff were friendly and the service was great. The food was nice too the only thing I would say is it's very outdated and quite old fashioned other than that definitely worth a visit
