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.

After their Deli earlier in the week (Great food, service, coffee, value etc) this meal was a let down. Positives - superb Olives and super foods salads) negatives small chicken pie (cold in the middle) cost of sides so an average steak tops out at £35+ and hyperactive waiter. Walked out cross rather than disappointed.

Got back for Sunday Lunch! Had high expectations after previous visits for lunch and dinner. Not disappointed. Went early and it was pretty much full by the time we left but still felt calm and relaxed with all sorts of different folks in enjoying themselves without it feeling busy or noisy. Don't understand people who go for SUNDAY LUNCH and have a burger. It is just wrong!

The rib-eye was cooked to perfection and well seasoned. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a great steak. The ambiance and decor of the restaurant is also very nice. The service was also very good.

Last minute booking on a Friday evening. Table was too small for sharing the cote de boeuf that we wanted but service and food were very good. We went for steak and a selection of sides. Steaks were very flavorful and the superfood salad was excellent. Wine was reasonably priced too. Met our expectations and will look forward to going again.

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.

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.
