I wasn 't hungry and had been warned that the portions were huge so ordered a haddock fishcake starter.. ample and delicious. Really lovely flavour. Other family members had the fish burger (tons of smoked salmon),... More

Came here for Sunday lunch. Food was great, staff were friendly and efficient, but, and it's a big but, throughout my short stay, all I could smell was the toilets. The restaurant was very close to the bathrooms and the smell was overpowering, so much so, that we moved tables. However, that smell was prevalent throughout the restaurant. Although the... More

From the reception to bar staff to waiters every looked like they enjoyed actually working. I had dinner & breakfast both of which were really good. Large portions so you won't leave hungry. The Room was spotless with a good shower and TV. Definitely will stay again.

I ate here with my Aunt on the 7th October. The lunch food was great, really tasty and the service was quick, efficient and the price was good value for money. The staff were particularly friendly, especially the front of house manager and Natalia who served us. The portion sizes are really big also! Defo worth a visit for lunch!

The resturant is absolutely brilliant with a great range of options (including gluten free) with good service and a great atmosphere and is also reasonably priced. Would happily recommend to all friends and family as a place to eat on holiday in this part of the world.
