Thank you for taking the time to review Steam, I am ever so sorry to hear about the incident that happened on site. I will be speaking with the staff to ensure they know that this is unacceptable, and to remind them of hygiene.

Went here as a change before returning home on Sunday, what a lovely view we had from the restaurant and the food is also nice. My husband recommends the steak!
