My table of 3 thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The spatcock chicken was very tasty as was the meat pie. Puds went down well too, especially the cheesecake which was the best I have tasted for many awhile. Such a shame you have to close, but we will certainly be back.

Our waitress was really good, very attentive and personable. She checked we knew the price of the wine we were ordering and I had a free pudding with a candle as it was my birthday. A really nice evening, thank you

Staff brilliant, attitude / manner is “all” - get either of these wrong & you WILL lose customers - the reverse is true, your staff were excellent - a credit. Only marked atmosphere down a tad as - personally - solid floors with plain walls / ceiling lead to a very noisy experience - prefer more subdued ambience - its a restaurant not a Stag venue.

The best steak I have ever tasted. Authentic and naturally basted in true South African style. I recommend the rib eye, medium if you like a bit of fat or the fillet medium if not.

Have been here for dinner for the last three weeks, taking advantage of the 50% off main meals. The staff are friendly and helpful. We found the starters and mains, excellent, but the desserts could be improved.
