A group of four, we ate there last night pre theatre (next door, Theatre Royal, WMOS production of Sweeny Todd, since you don’t ask), having booked just in case there was a rush – there wasn’t, but it was pleasantly busy. We were given a good table, by the window, staff were attentive without being intrusive, drinks were delivered in... More

Came here with some friends and we all very much enjoyed the food. Good value if you go for the mid week offer (2 courses for £14.95 or 3 for £17.95). Steak cooked as requested and service good.

We've been here several times, most recently last Saturday night. Steaks, of course - rib eye and rump, which are large pieces and are served with chips and two sauces. We also shared mushroom and broccoli sides, which are quite small and do boost the bill somewhat! Still, all our food was cooked well, served hot and nicely presented. Desserts... More

Not impressed overall.. Greek salad had a lot of pesto (why??) in it. Poor seafood medley. Rib eye steak was just OK. The place itself is lacking in atmosphere. We wont be back, unfortunately...

Evening meal, prompt service and good quality steaks, perfectly cooked. Mixed starter could have been hotter but didn't spoil the overall experience
