Visited on a wet Monday night. Reasonably busy. Great helpful staff, the restaurant is very spacious, excellent menu. The rib eye was perfectly cooked, and their pate, which we shared, was fantastic. Would definitely eat here again if in the area.

Had a great meal here with the family. The food was very good but a tad on the expensive side. Would recommend the eye fillet and chicken breast mains. Would return for sure.

Excellent meal, the staff were helpful with gluten-free and diary free options. Yummy breakfast, good coffee. The front door was left open a few times, which made us feel the cold on a winter morning.

We went here on a Saturday night, we were advised on booking that they had some larger tables that night so if it was a special occasion or romantic dinner it might be a bit noisy. We were ok with that, just a dinner out. I was worried that there might be a long wait though. We got there to a packed restaurant but there was no long waiting times for food, the noise level was more than acceptable. The food was consistently good - the medium/rare beef was medium/rare. The staff were professional and friendly. We had a very enjoyable evening. Service, food and timing all great, what more could you ask for.
