A work colleague recommended this place to us so we thought we would try it out. It's a wonderful, family owned restaurant with a great atmosphere. Seating was comfortable and staff were friendly. The food was stunningly delicious with very generous sized portions on each plate. A must try is the spare Ribs. ... I don't know how the get... More

Seated in the centre of the restaurant and drinks were promptly served. The food was delicious and good sizes for the price. I had the steak and ribs - I love how they provide a cooking guide for the steaks so helpful. The steak was cooked to perfection and calamari nice and crispy. Casual atmosphere about half full the restaurant... More

We went for dinner on the last day of the year and it was our first visit there and can't wait to go back. The service was awesome and the steaks were cooked perfectly. There's a small games room out the back for children , the whole place has a really nice atmosphere .

Went here for my birthday with a bunch of mates on 22/12. Service was excellent, staff made sure we were well looked after. I had the T-bone and it was one of the best steaks I've had, perfectly cooked, and the mushroom sauce was equally amazing. Will definitely be visiting again. Keep it up guys, doing a fantastic job.

Went there for a birthday dinner. Good for the meat eaters. Ribs highly recommended. Host was very helpful in advising of the soy free options and producing a lovely dinner. Even made garlic butter from scratch when they couldn't be 10p% certain.

Went there for a birthday dinner with friends and the menu, aside from the tacky laminating and clip art style, was extremely high priced. From outside and even the first look at the menu, you would think that it wasn't going to cost so much. Luckily there are a few reasonably priced options so while my friends may have been... More

All our dishes including our calamari and peri peri are very popular. None of our steaks cost $50- and all our prices are comparable to other steak houses. Sorry you did not enjoy your meal. More
