We both had steak with mushroom sauce. It was the blandest tasting meal I have eaten! Added a heap of salt and pepper to the sauce and meat and was not impressed. We had T-Bones and they were both fatty and grisly, wasnt impressed and hungry after

We dined as a large group (12) so we expected service to be a bit slow. However at one point we thought our order had been forgotten! To be fair I think the restaurant was short-staffed and our waiter was excellent and the slow service did not spoil our meal as we were out for the night anyway. When the... More

The service was slow and the average maybe they were not used to having so many people in? A comment from my local Customer saying that he would... More

This is the third time we've been in the past few months and it was yet another good night out! Good service, lovely meals and very reasonably priced wine made it a great evening out with family.

As soon as I walked in, I was made to feel very welcome. They had an excellent choice of select wines and I chose to drink Riverby Estate chardonay. I would love to see more restaurants and bar provide this particular brand of wine. The service was very prompt and friendly and the food was superb value for money as... More

We had an evening meal here when visiting Blenheim and the whole meal was excellent. Both my husband and I agreed best steak we have ever had, cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back and recommend to others.
