If you fancy some good pub food then head here as it's set up for the English tourist who wants food without any Bavarian surprises ! Don't expect ala carter but expect a good steak and a reasonable price. Beer is also good and menu has quite a variety and English menus are available. Great location opposite a city landmark...

Overall nice evening with good service. But what really bothers me in a dedicated steak house is that the steaks were not on point and the meat quality did not match the price. The sides are really good and Prices are moderate. I would prefere every block house if it comes to the meat. If you just want to go... More

Our service was pretty good given how busy the restaurant was that night. Our food came quite quickly, and everyone enjoyed their meals, prompting return visits for some later in the week!

Also, I have visited this restaurant occasionally over the years and the menu appears not to have changed recently. My main point is intended to be constructive. As a customer I want to feel important and receive good and personal service especially... More
