A group of 4 ladies called into the good home as a friend of ours and her daughter were heading back to England, and last time she was over she enjoyed her meal there. Well unfortunately a hot pot of gravy was split over a friend. It was an accident we do know, but however it was the conversation than... More

We stayed at the Brougham Heights Hotel which is a hotel where The Good Home deliver food right to your door. The food was lovely and the service was super quick. Would highly recommend

位置就在市中心。一进门就迎来一个可爱的笑容。装修很有趣,有一面照片墙,感觉很有年代感。我们点了牛排;沙拉;还有披萨。我朋友说披萨一般。但是我觉的牛排不错,沙拉也不错,卖相也好。服务很热情。a super warm greeting when we entered the door. we were seated in the lovely dining room and the steak was very nice. Attentive service. We had a great evening there and i think it is definitely worth to recommend.

A visitor and I enjoyed the option to downsize our steaks, and the easy to follow guide on the menu when choosing sides. The steaks had a nice bbq flavour too. We liked the presentation of the dishes and there was ample food to eat. The separate dining room that we picked is my preferred dining space as I find... More
