1617 Steakhouse is in the historic village of Hoghton, Lancashire. Their name is from the legend that King James VI of Scotland rested at the village tower while travelling, and was served some of the finest loins of beef, which he announced as ‘Sir Loin’.
We decided to just share some Dough Balls for our starters, as we were eager to still be as hungry as possible for our mains. We ordered the Sirloin Steak Stroganof (steak pieces in a creamy sauce served with rice) and a Steak on the Rocks. Now the latter was special to say the least. Served on a 320° red-hot lava rock, the steak had been seared, then served on the stone for us to cook ourselves. It was huge, came with three dipping sauces, and a side of sweet potato fries, broccoli and cauliflower.
Wow. The stroganof was incredibly tasty, but the Steak on the Rocks was unbelievable. This is a treat all steak lovers must experience. An amazing place, serving amazing food.
You really must eat here.
