...because this my favorite local restaurant and if I people read what I write I fear that it'll become so popular that I'll never get a table again!!

That aside, this place is a little gem! A family run restaurant that produces some of the best steak I've ever had. They grow their own greens in a little allotment nearby and the owner and his wife are friendly to the extreme providing a comfortable atmosphere with some good banter.

People complain that the decor is not modern, but who cares with food like this. In fact I love the way it's decorated. It reminds me of little local restaurants in spain, portugal and cyprus (where the owners are from originally). They even have wagon wheels on the walls!!

The wine list is great too and the desserts are simple but delicious.

As I said though... don't go! We need to keep this place a secret!!

We went here yesterday evening. The steak was lovely, and cooked a perfect medium rare as ordered. I tried the moussaka, which was a little bland. With a bottle of Cypriot wine a dessert and a soft drink our bill was £48. Good value in my opinion. The proprietors are lovely - a husband (chef) and wife (front of house) team; they were very welcoming. We'll be going back soon!

This restaurant is in a time warp, really stuck in the 70's. However, the food and the service is great. Sometimes you just need to look past the decor, and the impersonal cloned places, and just try something different.
