Three of us visited on Friday night, staff were very friendly and attentive, but the food was very ordinary, 2 steaks and a chicken , all 3 of us left most of it, and the sirloin was £18 so not cheap, it was probably worth half that we paid .

Our food took a little longer to come out than I would have liked but that was easily forgotten with the standard of presentation and quality of the food. Service was pleasant enough and the meals enjoyable. I would definitely... More
