Our Story...

Opened in 1946 and owned by peter & barbara oliver since 1978, Steels has gained a nationwide reputation built on quality and quantity of helpings.

We are particularly noted for our traditional fish & chips but our menu also includes a wide variety of traditional fare including special grills and steaks. Vegetarians are well catered for and we offer a wide range of starters and genuine home made sweets. Children are especially welcome and have their own extensive menu. Steels boasts two fully air-conditioned dining rooms and is non-smoking throughout.

The restaurant has been enormously popular for over 30 years with queues regularly extending along the street. Ingredients for the menu are purchased daily from local suppliers to ensure that only the freshest food is served.
