    Afternoon all!

    As per the title,

    Can anyone recommend anywhere that serves up a good steak?

    Pop's birthday is just round the corner and I'm looking to sort something out for the day.

    I've heard a lot of good things for there, and I'm pretty sure Andy's Butchers of Meir still supply the steaks as well?

    Might the date coincide with Steak Night at the Swan? If so its cracking value and good quality.

    It isn't unfortunately, it falls a few days before the steak night there. still worth a look though I think?

    We spent his 65th there and could not put a thing wrong with the night or the staff at the Swan.

    Veggie option?

    by that do you mean a lump of Quorn shaped to look like a steak but still retains the texture and flavor of a 1000 year old loin cloth?

    Bell at Haughton monthly (fortnightly now?) steak night is usually a winner. Never had a bad one.
