The food and the service was good.

20 July 2014 Shelley United Kingdom

Staff were good and attentive, they gave us free coffee's to compensate for steak error

Limited selection of wines (had run out from those on wine list). Steak not cooked enough, asked for medium came out rare. They re cooked but then over did it to well done. Deserts not as listed, again ran out of some choices.

Lack lustre service and mediocre meal

The steak

18 July 2014 Louise United Kingdom

Steak was beautifully cooked.

Service wasn't great. There were plenty young people around but they didn't seem terribly well trained. Dessert was disappointing. Not sure we would recommend but willing to suggest for an evening meal unless it's a special one.
