Steakhouse
As a proudly independent, family-run restaurant, we bring together over 50 years of expertise and the very freshest ingredients around to create a first-rate, affordable dining experience in Weston-super-Mare.

Our menus are refreshingly honest, simple and uncomplicated; we serve brilliant steaks and top-notch seafood and our daily specials are second-to-none. We’ve got a great selection of wines and our bar is stocked with locally-sourced ales, continental beers and small batch spirits. There's a great cocktail list too!

The restaurant itself offers the perfect mix of old and new… original features, period charm and the only remaining thatched roof in Weston-super-Mare, combined with a laid-back atmosphere and a really-very-cool, beach-facing terrace area complete with glowing fire pits.

A discretionary 10% service charge will be added for parties of 10 or more guests.

    We had some friends to stay over the weekend, so i booked your restaurant a week in advance for Saturday 18th May. We were surprised that it was so empty and after being shown to our table we were told you had a problem in the kitchens (which can happen). We were offered a complimentary drink and very limited chip shop style menu none of which were what we would have expected for a special night out with friends. We decided to leave and went up the road to Nick’s bar and ended up eating in a tent. We were never contacted in advance either by email or phone, both of which you had, giving us the option to make alternative plans and more importantly, we we very disappointed that the owner wasn’t there to apologise and it was left to one of 2 indifferent members of staff. Complacency is very dangerous in the fickle world dining, just hope for you it doesn’t happen again, you don’t get many chances to get it right.

    This is a fabulous place to come and eat. We booked it for our daughters 12th birthday for her and her friends and the quality and portions size was fantastic. The staff were attentive and even brought out a dessert with a candle as a birthday treat that we weren't expecting. We had a table outside and although it was busy, as the sun was shining, it wasn't loud with lots of raucous people. There was a great atmosphere. We have eaten here in the past and have never been disappointed. Fab place and one of our top places to eat in Weston.

    After being allocated our reserved table another member of staff came over to check we should be sat where we were but realised we had a reservation. Initially the service was good, taking a drinks order & then again for food. However after we were served our food and had finished eating 20/30 minutes later no one came back to our table. Granted i could see the venue was busy. So i went inside to ask for the bill. I was rudely ushered back to my table outside to wait again. Not being offered any more drinks, which we would have ordered being such a warm day. Then the server cleared our table and took our payment. We were not asked how our meal was. I chose to let a different server know on our way out, compliments to the chef as my steak was cooked beautifully med-rare. Our meals were good, located good. Certain servers not so accommodating.

    What a fabulous sea front find. We had an outside table which had a glass enclosed coal fire on it, which kept us toasty during a torrential downpour. Food was excellent, and service exceptional

    Our table was in a small room as a forgotten corner. Very long waiting time and we only had our starter after sitting there for one and half hour To be fair, the starter was quite nice but the mains were just bland and tasteless. Trying to charge London prices without providing the actual quality or service. Do not waste your time or money here unless you enjoy leaving hungry and disappointed.

    Food was cold and not very tasty. Service staff didn’t seem particularly bothered when we complained. Zero ambiance inside as they seem to have modernised all of the former character away. Will not be returning.

    The food was lovely and we enjoyed the sharing roast. We did have a wait of 45mins for the meal as they were very busy.

    Food was great, a little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. Menu was quite limited and printed on A4 paper, which I feel wasn’t in keeping with the rest of the restaurant. The fire pits outside are a lovely feature and we enjoyed sitting there with a cocktail after our meal. Overall the service was great however we had to wait a little too long for the bill.
