We met up with Rachel and Tim for dinner at Squire's Loft on Saturday evening. We'd never been in spite of hearing good things from various people and we were looking forward to a good feed. Having said that, I'd already had a good feed at lunch so I was a little worried as to whether I could handle this but I proved my mettle and all was good!
The boys went with 300 gram Porterhouse steaks and Rachel and I enjoyed the Beef and Reef which is a 200g eye fillet served with a tiger prawn kebab. We also shared fries and fried onions on the table.
Wowee! Really tender and tasty steaks. Loved the creamy mushroom sauce and the Squire's baste / marinade on the prawns. Steve doesn't usually go for prawns but he tried mine and really enjoyed them.
The baked potato was a really tasty version...we all agreed the potato flesh was creamy and buttery and wonderful but we'd love it more with a crispy skin!
It's quite an American style steakhouse and portions are generous. We found the service effective and friendly enough and the food delivered as a good steakhouse should. Pricewise probably on a par if not more expensive than the Station Hotel but quality is definitely there too. Ambience and decor is more functional than anything else and really doesn't get much of a write up but it delivers on food.
