Hubby and I went with friends for the midweek steak night. We didn't have high expectations, given their cheap prices. However, we have to say we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality, portion and taste. The steak is highly recommended.

Nothing suprising about the Bejamin Fawcett. the usual Weatherspoon pub and eatery. Slow to serve once ordered and can get busy. try others close by, simmular drinks and menu but quicker.
