My partner dined here after being recommended by friends. We had the set menu which again had been recommended by friends. Prawn cocktails to start, the prawns and sauce were tasteless and although the portion was large it wasnt presented very well. As soon as we had finished our starters they immediately brought out our steaks without giving us any... More

Friendly service, great prices & fantastic food. Highly recommend you try. Specials board was very good value. Ribs & prawns were great starters. Had the 12 oz fillet with stilton & it really was a slice of stilton with the crust on top.

We regularly visit steps and is now my favourite place to dine. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, and the food is fantastic, you can not fault a thing. The steak is amazing, you will not find a better steak in Devon. Awesome value for money, a must try restaurant as you will not be disappointed.

Recommended by our hotel, we were very pleased, and went twice in a week. We loved it. It is not a chain, but privately owned and run. Very full menu, good and friendly service.
