    Somewhat disappointing tonight, staff as always a pleasure, easy use of taste card.

    Starter of goats cheese on med vegetables was very nice, but the sirloin was open for debate - whilst it was tasty possibly slightly overcooked it was like leather - I waited 25m after starters in a somewhat quiet restaurant, not wanting to wait another 25m we endure shearing the leather tawse into edible chunks.

    Unlike them here, previously ribeyes and sirloins have been excellent - perhaps a bad cow... "

    Great Management and Team make you feel welcome. This really is a genuine discount from the menu prices AND they really DO want your business using a tastecard. .. never made to feel unwelcome or embarrassed. Why not give it a go? I started my tastecard 3 months ago and have saved over £300 already. This has become my local and the menu has been updated so the choice of meals is still interesting and enticing. And if you're looking for a great Christmas Gift.... Tastecard is a gift that keeps giving :-) "

    Delicious Goats Cheese starter followed by a Ribeye (slightly over rare), good portion of food.

    Only downside is no atmosphere, little to no background music, you could be dining in a cave.. "
