Good size portions, friendly staff, tasty steak, luke warm chips, asked for steak medium rare and it came rare which is fine for me cause I like rare so didn't send it back, ample food, lacking atmosphere, was once a lovely old building, bit of 80's nostalgia, good onion rings! Won't rush back but won't not go again.

Had fish n chips but fish was a bit greasy. Also had a lasagna with ciabatta bread that was good. Very nice pots of hot tea rounded out the meal. Comfortable dining. Nice for people watching out the large windows.

Have been to this restaurant many times over the years and (unlike some other restaurants in the Beefeater chain) it has always served excellent food. Well done - and definitely 5 stars

I had a 10 oz. rump steak cooked medium rare from the daytime menu. It was cooked to perfection. I personally don't like fat but there was no waste at all with this steak. I had also had a prawn cocktail starter and this too was excellent. It was the first time I have used this restaurant and If this... More

Came in out of the freezing cold and had a good quality beer and a delicious chili. The service of the food was good, at the bar it was OK.
