The location is as the name suggests, a corner site. The sleek, stylish restaurant boasts floor-to-ceiling windows adorned with fairy lights, which create a welcoming atmosphere.
Unable to decide which starter we wanted, we opted for the Blackhouse Sharing Plate, a selection of crispy salt and pepper calamari, spiced chicken skewers, BBQ pulled pork bon-bons and sweet potato wedges. For good measure, we also ordered a prawn and avocado salad and a side of DIY garlic bread.
The crispy calamari served with lemon mayonnaise, was great, although the children were a bit surprised that they came served with tails, but despite their initial reservations, they enjoyed them!
The restaurant has a reputation for fine seafood and excellent steak, so I went with the grilled lobster and my husband had the 28-day aged steak. The rose red lobster was perfectly grilled, and had tender flesh and a divine flavour, enhanced by garlic butter. It was so delicious I was loathe to share it with the others - family or otherwise.
The traditionally reared steak was tender and flavoursome. Every month the menu offers a different breed of cattle sourced from the finest British farms to ensure the highest quality meat and impeccable flavour.
My husband and I normally love indulging in dessert, but we were so stuffed from our fabulous starters and mains, we didn't have room. The children, had no such problem and refused to leave without having their favourite dessert - sticky toffee pudding. Be warned, it is a big portion, which was great because it meant we we were all able to have a try!
The service is outstanding and the staff make you feel welcome. The restaurant will soon be getting refurbished and it will also be launching a new menu, so we'll need to pay it another visit later this summer to check out all the new changes.
