About
Our ethos here is simple. We’re all about being excellent in everything we do; from the food and drinks we serve to the home-from-home space we’ve created. So whether you’re joining us for a drink at the bar, that great steak, pizza and meal or a special event we aim to go above and beyond every time you visit. We’re all about the exceptional experiences here. We’ve handpicked the finest producers of beef across Britain and the US who provide us with the best quality cuts all matured for a minimum of 28 days. Our Josper charcoal oven cooks the meat quickly meaning you get a great smoky, juicy piece of steak on your plate every time. We’ve got one of the only Josper ovens in Warwickshire, and
