Everything was fabulous! Salmon, lamb chops, steak, ribs and dessert. Service was awesome, various staff would pick up plates and refill water so you never had to wait. Flavour and portions were excellent. Highly recommend.

Christmas dinner, I ordered the ribs. With my first bite, the meat on ribs was cool, BUT, the bones were ice cold as if they were just taken out of the freezer. I sent them back, where they re-warmed them (likely for the 3rd time)....More

Stringy, chewy unidentifiable with strong rosemary flavour. Truly disgusting. Other menu items may be tolerable

Lovely big bar and restaurant with a great menu and an excellent rack of ribs. There is a lovely big open fire too and plenty of beers to choose from.

Was a great spot. Cool vibe and everyone was happy with their meals. Everyone ordered a meat and a side, and we all shared the sides. Would visit again! French onion soup was to die for! Tried the scalloped potatoes as a side- VERY GOOD

Visited with 10 friends for a night cap after dinner. Fairly quiet but nice ambience and great beer and drinks menu. Excellent service. Good place if busy one would think. Didn't eat this time but I did a few years ago and food was excellent....More
