Outback Jack was not bad, a typical pub environment. Food was cheap and average. Unfortunately we sat next to two guys, one of whom was a serial swearer. The 'F' word wasn't spared, making it very uncomfortable to enjoy our evening out so we ate...More

You are spoilt for choice with steaks in this town. I'm sure you can do better than this. My chewy steak was accompanied by really dry mashed potatoes.

Way overpriced for what is nothing more than a pub meal. Steak was cooked to order but was tough and chewy. The salad was boring and there wasn't evrn dressing provided. I could have made better at home. Won't be back there at all.
