Can you believe we travelled all the way from Chicago to have this Sticky Toffee Pudding?! And it was everything we dreamed of. Staff was incredibly polite and friendly on top of it. Thanks to Maaz Rahman for the recommendation!

Had a fantastic meal with my family today. Hadn't been for a while but was delighted that the very high standards are being maintained.

Beautiful steaks. Went here for steak night. Both our meals were lovely. Cooked medium rare as requested with chips, onion rings and salad. Very good value in lovely surroundings with quality well trained staff.
