having been a long time lover of the Old station hotel I was apprehensive about dining here - the reviews have been hit and miss and I didn't want to 'wreck the memory' so to speak. No fear of that - everything is good, its Different but the Same. Good steak. Good wine list. Solid selection by the glass. The... More

This place has the tastiest meat you have ever tasted. Melts in your mouth after one bit and so succulent. Worth the price.

Ate here with a group of friends and I have to say from start to finish this place was great. Firstly the fitout is excellent and very comfortable with a huge bar area and then open restaurant on the other side. Although predominantly a steak restaurant don't forget the rest of the menu. The papardelle bolognese is rich and tasty.... More

This used to be our favourite carnivore hangout for a quality steak. We called in last week for lunch, the dining room was nearly empty, and when we checked the menu we could see why. The steak has gone from expensive but great to truly exhorbitant. I decided on an entree and dessert. The special entree was a salmon ravioli... More

Went there with business and we all tried different cuts of steaks. The food is very pleasingly tasty and cooked to perfection. On the expensive side though.

We last reviewed the hotel in 2014 and at that time it was fantastic. Our recommendation at that time was to try the slow roast lamb. Unfortunately, from a food perspective, the hotel has gone backwards. While the staff were friendly and attentive the only positive about the food was the fries. The table water was warm and the bread... More

We have been here three times previously and the steaks have been tasty, well seasoned and excellent quality (not gristly). This visit was not as good. Service was exceptional with a nice welcome, friendly banter and smiles all round. The steaks were cooked as per our order (rare, med rare etc) however the pieces were gristly, dry, chewy with sinew... More
