We all want complete freshness and we feel the only way to truly guarantee an amazing steak (or burger) is to work directly with farmers, prepare the produce in-house and put it straight onto the charcoal grill.
We are a casual dining restaurant, with a small area of outdoor seating, main dining area, rear dining area under a full-opening skylight and a lower-ground seating area for 18 covers overlooking the kitchen and charcoal grill.

The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to give my daughter the meal she was hoping for, even though it was not a Sunday menu item .

A great little place with some tables outside for a pre dinner drink. Amazing steaks and very tasty side dishes. We love a menu where peas heavily feature !! Great service too.

Overall to be recommended. Excellent quality food and wine for the price with comparable ambience and staffing.
Negative points-being charged for still water in an open jug at £2 a pop and the 12.5% service charge. 10% is more reasonable.
Not enough to put us off going again however...

Impressive Lunch for the price, well presented and genuinely filling. Peas could have been ever so slightly sweeter with the pie, but that might just be down to personal taste.

Been here before so decided to introduce my friends to this lovely steak house. Food is always amazing. Very nice wine list. Efficient service. Only quibble is the table we had by the front window. Get cold air and cigarette smoke when the door opens. Much better in the rear atrium area. Will ask to be seated in the back next time.

Service was slow. The burger was horrendously dry and room temperature. Unfortunately three of us ordered it. The fries were beyond average also.

Great choice of steaks, different cuts and variety of meat away from the norm. Staff were knowledgeable about the cuts and everything was displayed beautifully. Restaurant décor was lovely. A little on the expensive side, but to be expected for the area and quality of produce.

Excellent food - the steak was excellent, but what would you expect coming from Yorkshire! Lovely little restaurant, prices not bad for London. We didn't find the waiter over friendly - he did his job, but not with a smile! Wanted a night cap, but we were too late as finished at 10.30!

Best steak I've ever had. That's including some celebrities restaurants I've been to. Best to get one of the chef's special steak that is only available on the day. There is a cheaper burger menu as well if your wallet is not so deep.

A friend recommended me to go after 3pm to enjoy 50% on the burger. I looked at the website on Friday before making my reservation to check it was possible. I booked for Sunday where I was charged full price and no mention of the 50% off. It was also removed from the website... for a burger it is a big expensive as you have to add fries for 4£. Also not a good place for dessert. A bit disappointed by the price but happy with the waitress who was polite and the place which wasn't too noisy and clean.

It took over an hour to get our order even though the restaurant wasn't especially busy. Even then they missed out one item. Also the steak in my salad tasted and smelled so old I couldn't eat it.
