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.

No warning when we sat down that there was a long wait didn’t get our food for a hour and a half after we ordered,
the food was delicious when it came out the beef was lovely and thick with crispy potatoes

Hi Rachel, we are so sorry to read this review. Of course we are delighted that the quality of the food when it arrived was delicious, but it seems the service left a lot to be desired. We shall be investigating the situation with the team on site. Would you be happy for us to give you a call to discuss our findings? Thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention.

Lovely place but so busy. We had to wait along time to get our drinks. Then we had to wait to order food. There wasn’t enough staff for how busy it was. The food was lovely but very overpriced. I think I would go there again but maybe for a Sunday lunch?
