Another great steak meal. Outside is a bit run down but give it a try ... you won't regret it ... quick service and you can watch your steak on the grill via the grill cam!!

Looking at their board last week I think about ten - not very many at all! I'm sure people have completed it just not either alone, or within the allotted time. Kate x

We know steak. We're all about our juicy meats, that's not to say we don't have vegetarian options too, but meat is kind of our thing. We source all of our meat from a local butcher and order our fresh produce on a daily basis. Our motto: less pretence, more food! The Griller is for life, not just for Christmas and we can cater to all different kinds of occasions... birthdays, stag do's, business dinners, date night - whatever your event, we're cooking!
