Great venue and awesome staff. Only thing I would recommend is to give a another size of beer glass, you can order a 370ml or the next size up is 1Ltr - something in between would be a good idea. I'll be back though :)

We got the steak which was cooked to our preference but lacked in taste. Apart from that, the cookie dessert was super tasty and awesome selection of drinks!
