The local grill treats their customers with the utmost dining experience. The choice of meat is superbly prepared and the sides are a great accompaniment to the meal. It is my first choice when looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.

The Steak is the best I have heard actually. The tour to the ageing room was the lovely and unexpected surprise. The service was amazing, from the manager to the waiters. We left very happy and full :-)
