OMG!!! i really dont know what to say apart from never again!.
The only thing that stopped us walking out of here without paying was the girl on reception/waitress who was dead friendly and nice to us.
The food was appauling we had two steaks, we asked for rump was told not got any so given sirlion both ordered medium rare when they came were clearly rare and the worse cut of steak possible full of gristle, the mushrooms were just fried mush soaked in fat and grease. One of the party asked for peppercorn sauce when this arrived it tasted like corn flour and was very pale (milk looking) and luke warm even the wine over priced and we were told they might not have the bottle we wanted it was served to us in a wine bucket full of cold water rather than ice.
If you want a decent meal dont waste your time going here unless you want poor quality of food and a bad tummy for days later like myself.
