Went here with a Groupon voucher (£35 for 2 people eating steak and chips + any pudding + a glass of wine each) as we live round the corner. Weird, footballers' wives style decor (unsurprisingly given the location, ownership and likely clientele) and service was adequate. Food was very good (10oz sirloin and caramelised apple pie) and house wine was fine.
The main gripe I have was a blatant attempt to increase margins by making people buy extra drinks. When we arrived, we were told that our table wasn't ready (when we arrived there were 3 or 4 ready tables for 2) and were told to go to the bar. This happened to everyone who walked in - really shameful and obvious process. Of course, when we sat down it was at one of the tables that was already prepared when we arrived. Shame as everything else (at the Groupon price) was good.
