    The food at this restaurant was amazing, there's simply nothing else to say in regards that. I chose the steak which was easily one of the finest I have tasted and the garlic prawns for starters was to die for. Unfortunately due to current events with covid we were the only persons there throughout our booking. This didn't stop the staff from being extremely helpful and friendly. I would like to see the restaurant full to judge the atmosphere and maybe give it full marks.

    We had a fabulous meal, the best steak on the stone and a real bay tree for the fillet skewer. A delicious red wine which they recommended. A hidden gem.

    Friendly attentive service and faultless food. It would be difficult to find better hot stone steaks - anywhere.. Tables are a little bit cheek by jowl so you would go here for the excellent food and service rather than for an intimate evening.
