“Good Steak most times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We have eaten here a few times and had great steak most of the time. Not much choice on the menu .. but sometimes that's exactly what you want ... no big decisions. Basically you get steak egg n chips or steak egg n chips.... It has a good atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks.

“Great Steak and Value for Money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I was reluctant to leave the hotel bar , cosy fire and large screen showing the world cup soccer. We had be recommended Grumpy by friends and although it looks a little 'suspect' from outside if you want great steak,egg, chips then this is the place to go. The young man serving both behind the bar and the food was great. The food took almost 45 mins to come despite only 9 in the restaurant. Outside area has a lovely fire but only one which was taken over by a large party drinking. I would suggest they develop this lovely area further with several fires , creating a ambience.
No music and vibe inside, but the steak was well worth the wait.

“Good old fashioned steakhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Must visit if you want a good steak at a good price. No frills, eat inside or out. I fed four males for £25.

Wouldn't get one for that in UK!!

“Delicious steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

We took my husband's parents out to dinner, and as we all love red meat, opted for Grumpy Griller. The steak was outstanding, perfectly prepared as we ordered. Will definitely recommend this if you love steak. A bit brightly lit and not much of an atmosphere, but neither of these factors really play a role in the quality of the food
