Look, let's be serious. If you are after a romantic, candle-lit dinner; then maybe this is not for you. If you are wanting a three-course, cream-filled expedition; this is not for you. If you are wanting first-class steak, cooked perfectly, and a good time with...More

Went to the new grumpy grilled site. 350g rump steak was perfectly prepared. Service was a bit slow, but food made up for it. Amazing fire out back. Definitely worth it for steak lovers. See you again!

Bit disappointed. Went for dinner, one of our guests are not small, he could be seated comfortable. It's steak and chips, nothing special. Steaks were great, bar menu was very limited. In all, it was fine fo what we paid.

Superb steak for a wonderful price, our waiter was great and as they were out of black label we could bring our own in. I hope this place continues to grow. The garlic butter was superb.
