Bit disappointed. Went for dinner, one of our guests are not small, he could be seated comfortable. It's steak and chips, nothing special. Steaks were great, bar menu was very limited. In all, it was fine fo what we paid.

Superb steak for a wonderful price, our waiter was great and as they were out of black label we could bring our own in. I hope this place continues to grow. The garlic butter was superb.

The steak is best steak I have eaten in my life, with good service, and nothing compares to the quality . I enjoy going back, and introducing friends to the great meals.
