Hyped up for some reason. Steaks weren't anything special and chips were soggy. Staff tried to make amends by doubling the portion of chips but they weren't better. Staff was very friendly though.

The restaurant was empty and perhaps we should have realised an alternative destination would've been a good idea. The fish smelt putrid and tasted bad but the waitress insisted it was good. Steak was good but the chips were soagy and the broccoli was grossly...More
