Our 2nd time of coming here (last trip was 2 years ago), again the service was lovely and the food top drawer. Thoroughly recommend it if you like a proper steak.

As a birthday treat this restaurant ticked all the right boxes. The restaurant itself was cosy but not crowded, the food was gorgeous and the price was reasonable. A great place to eat if you’re wanting a relaxed atmosphere but quality food. Highly recommended.
