I rarely eat three courses at a restaurant but I made an exception here. We started with garlic bread and calamari - both were full of flavour. The calamari was lightly covered and served with a garlic dip which complimented it perfectly. For my main course I had Spaghetti Carbonara (my go to dish) It tasted amazing and the portion... More

Hubbie and I had the rib eye steak medium and the boys had margarita pizzas. Steak was lovely and tender, well presented with chips and a tasty side salad. Also had the peppercorn sauce. One of the best steaks I have ever had. Plates were cleared. Excellent friendly staff too!

Been here a number of times and it's nearly always the same Forget having a quiet meal and chats with friends or romantic meal for two because you'll probably be sat next to a long table seated with friends shouting from one end to the other! You can't hear yourself think let alone speak. I'm sorry about this I do... More
