After the fantastic meal we had here 2 weeks ago we decided we would return and bring a couole of friends too. The entire meal, yet again, was fantastic and the service was great, a few of the servers had been quite nervous on our previous visit but already there is a noticable difference in confidence and therefore I would say the service was better. Service from the front of house can't be faulted, he was well mannered and well humored, professional and very helpful and obliging.
Now to the meal; none of us ordered starters (scandalous, I know.) and so were provided with fresh breads and tapenade which were delicious.
3/4 of us got steaks, 2 sirloin, 1 ribeye and 1/4 had the chicken sizzler followed by a round of desserts. Everyone was very very happy with their meal.
A's Main: 10oz Ribeye Steak cooked medium/rare served grilled tomato, flat mushroom and onion rings (which I substituted with GF onions, meaning no batter) and a choice of sides, of which I chose Champ and Peppered Sauce. This meal was fantastic; steak was seasoned and cooked to perfection and the sides were delightful too.
G's Main: 10oz Sirloin cooked medium, served with grilled tomato, flat mushroom, onion rings and choice of sides, of which was chips and peppered sauce. Again, G was very happy with the flavour of his meal however the steak, although delicious, was undercooked.
A's Dessert: Calypso Coffee and Lemon Posset served with fresh cream, a lemon macaron and caramelised lemon slice. This was deliciously tart and creamy, the perfect balance, the macaron let it down as it was hard rather than light and chewy and flavour was very almondy rather than lemon, the homemade shortbread was superb.
G's Dessert: Calypso Coffee and Cheesecake of the Day which was Maple Syrup and Walnut. Served with Vanilla Ice Cream and a wafer straw.
