The welcome was friendly and food was soon ordered and wine was being poured. The food took a while to arrive in spite of the place being very quiet but that was probably because Cam had ordered ribs which takes longer to cook.
Chris got his steak, porterhouse with a peppercorn sauce. I had eye fillet with a mushroom sauce. Cam had the ribs and Karly ordered a Wagyu burger. Steve wasn't hungry having had a late lunch so ordered the mushrooms with goat's cheese in a tomato stew. We shared shoestring fries and onion rings.
Admittedly expectations were not high given we pretty much just wandered in and the place was quiet but we were all pretty impressed with our food. My steak was tender and juicy. The mushroom sauce was more a thin jus so that was a bit meh. It came with a small jacket potato with sour cream which was delicious. The onion rings were epic - huge, crispy and golden. Chris steak craving was satisfied. Cam cleared his plate and what was left of Karly's and Steve enjoyed his mushrooms so all in all thumbs up.
The things that weren't so great about the meal was I asked for some salt for my potato and that didn't arrive till half way through the meal and it came in a little dish so it appears they don't have salt cellars. Service started off well but by the time we finished and wanted the bell it took a long time to get someone's attention as everyone was too busy cleaning up. The decor of the restaurant is a little cafeteria / canteen like and there is no atmosphere which is a shame as the quality of the food could make it more of a destination restaurant if the ambience was better. The restaurant has great water views so they could make more of it.
