Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I apologise that the steaks were not to your liking. I'm surprised that you were disappointed as our steaks are very popular and are sourced from a very high quality butcher. If you weren't happy, we would have been more than happy to replace the dishes at the time... More
