Lone star never seems to fail us. I've been here so often and I always get my usual Jonny cash. The food is so yummy and decent portion. The service is great and the atmosphere is lovely.

Great way to spend a cold winters night. Great service, great meal and we had one of the booths so it was nice and cosy and private. Got the graham norton sav special and it was very nice, good recommendation from our server!

Great place very accommodating for large group. Can bring your own birthday cake. Although it's quite noisy it's means you aren't disturbing others when in a large group. Food is yummo. Great selection
