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.

All food on the menu was available, unlike other restaurants we have been to recently, so a good start. There were two us and we had Tiger King Prawn for a starter, mains of Wild Mushroom Risotto and Sea Bass and to finish sorbet and cheesecake. All cooked and prepared beautifully, service was spot on and good value overall. Our reservation was for 5 to 5.30pm on a Friday so not the busiest of times but there were other diners there. Gets busy from 7pm. We will definitely visit again.

In our increasingly cashless society, maybe the restaurant would consider inserting a facility in their payment system to allow us non-cash payers to give a tip ?

OK but nothing special. Food was quite good but expensive for what it was. Mojito cocktail was poor, very week, too little sugar, lime & mint. Overall not bad but there’s better places for the money.

As we had our dog with us, sat outside on one of the fire pit tables, although it turned out to be a lovely sunny day. On a cold day it would be superb. Great idea and tables were well spread out. Had the Sunday lunch, great food & value for money. Would certainly recommend this restaurant

Fantastic food and great customer service. Everything our party ordered was beautiful - really great quality food! The staff were also lovely and very welcoming. The interior had changed somewhat since we last visited and it no longer has the homey/comfortable feel that we remember. Also it is a little on the expensive side... but then you do get what you pay for. We had a fabulous evening overall and I would definitely recommend to others
