I met friends for dinner here and we all selected from the fixed price menu, from which you can choose two or three courses. The price was reasonable although portions a little small. I started with the seafood medley - one garlic king prawn, one scallop and a small slice of smoked salmon. This was followed by a steak (smaller... More

Went here on a Wednesday night for my husband birthday. Lovely clean restaurant and very spacious. Not very busy but didn't lack atmosphere. Very attentive waiters. A very full menu, I was a little worried by the weight of the steaks, so the waiter suggested I look at the specials menu, again very extensive but I didn't fancy just a... More

Spotted this restaurant during the afternoon and booked for the evening. So glad we did as the restaurant was full. The staff were attentive and professional. The surroundings were immaculately clean, including the ladies toilets. A lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. It was nice to be able to see the chefs cooking the food and there were no delays between... More

Went for dinner on New Year's Eve. Not our first choice, as we booked relatively late and other preferred restaurants were by then fully booked. The service and food was reasonable but a revisit will be required to properly assess the restaurant's offering. Reasonably priced for a reasonable dining experience.

Had the lunch time menu - starter , 6oz sirloin steak , chips & peppercorn sauce and a glass of house wine. £9.95 superb value and the food was fabulous. Staff very pleasant. Going to return again and have an evening meal in the near future. Would recommend .

Five of us ate here on a Sunday afternoon for our Christmas get together. We chose the three course Christmas menu and we all had steaks, which were cooked to our liking and they tasted very good indeed. The meal was enjoyable and the service was excellent. The only thing I could fault was the pricing of the wine. However... More

After looking forward to going here,unfortunately a little disappointed,food was okay,but not anything special,but mostly found the staff quite cold and unwelcoming and didnt have the same person waiting the table,not a relaxing experience.
