“Good food! ”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We went to the place as is wasn't too far from where we live! We both ordered stake, mine was supposed to me medium rare but came out more medium well! I told the waitress who I think was the new owner and she was more than sorry took it away straight away! The new stake that was brought back was perfect!
Was very very quite and some kids were running up and down trying to get in! This was addressed quickly by the owner!
Good food, for 2 stake dinners 2 bottles of wine and 2 desserts it came to about £90. I would recommend anyone to go here and I would go back again myself

“Much Improved by New Owners”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

This restaurant is now much improved since the old regime left, Steak's wonderful, though we will only eat Fillet, so cannot comment on the others. There is now no need to send back to have the steak cooked correctly, this happened everytime under the old management. Atmosphere better with much friendlier staff. we will be back for our now monthly visit.

“Absolutely out of this world”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Went down to pick up my wedding dress and have a trip to Alton Towers. Had a look on trip advisor for places to eat and this one seemed to have good reviews. But mainly about the ales and steaks. We got there, greeted by lovely waitresses. I order the rossini steak.....One of the chefs specials and my friend had a burger. Both were out of this world, the steak was cooked to perfection the burger too. We had three courses and I did not fault one of them. For two three course meals and three drinks only coming to 60quid. Which included a fillet steak this really is thee place to go. Thanks guys, made picking up my wedding dress even more special.
