I have dined here countless times over the years and I must say that this is one of few places which has maintained its excellent standards. The steaks simply cannot be faulted. Service is good, friendly and prompt.

Quick stop in with some mates, the sports bar has a great atmosphere. The bar menu was good and the food was really tasty, drinks are a decent price!

Business Lunch. Don't get to go to too many of those. Great menu. Entrees were very good (especially the oysters Kilpatrick). Had the rainbow steak, very good.

This is a pub and that's what you get but the food is above average for pubs. Great steaks and the staff seem pretty good and always busy. If you go there for lunch you must tell them if you need to get back to...More
