We went straight into our main meal selections to save room for pudding. When we asked for Dessert menu we were then told that they had sold everything the day before and they only had chocolate brownie left
This was disappointing.

Food was good service was good only downside was waiting around to pay as other customers took priority and lastly was very crowded in there at the end and was back to back with what could only be described as arrogant boys moaning all the time about their food

If you do anything this year visit this fantastic gem of a restaurant.

Probably the best steak we have had, starters to sing for and a desert that made the perfect night.

If you miss this place you'll regret it so book now to avoid disappointment!

Our first outing for a VERY long time and the staff here made it a pleasant evening. Very friendly, welcoming and professional. The food was absolutely delicious and the choice of drink extensive. Althoigh cold, it was great sitting under the heaters and it felt cosy. The prices were a little high, which means, although we will DEFINITELY return, it probably won't be as regularly as we'd like, with all that delicious food!
