Found this online and liked the idea of choosing some cuts by weight. Loved the experience from start to finish. Waitress was amazing, as were all staff. We had a chateaubriand that we are still talking about! Never before have we had a 800g one! You could also have chosen a 1kg Porterhouse or Rib Eye. The sides were great,... More

Wonderful ambience (dinner), all mood lighting, fine dining but industrial feel, loved it. Staff are friendly and helpful. Wine list good, by the glass too. Steaks are fresh, get there early if you want the best choice. We had their cocktail of the day, rhubarb Pisco Sours (lovely). Worth a visit especially for an occasion.

Went here for my first anniversary with my girlfriend. It was a special occasion so why not. The Sunday lunch that we shared was amazing and the portions were perfect. Had to ask for a little more gravy but everyone has their own preference with gravy requirements. Beef was perfect on a medium well. Truffle cauliflower cheese was to die... More

Good service and good food. The portion sizes are small but the steaks and wines are good. As four blokes sharing 3 courses with a couple of bottles of wine and a dessert wine we spent £408.
