“BEST MEAL EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2010

Definately the best value meal I have ever had, char grilled steak, not an ounce of fat or grizzle on it, large pile of chips, salad, mushrooms and grilled tomato all for £8.95.
Service was excellent, the staff were lovely and the decor superb.
we spent the evening upstairs in the bar area, drinks reasonable prices, the restaurant is downstairs, just let the bar staff know you want a table and within a few minutes they bring you a machine which when your table is ready lights up. Great idea.
