A lovely meal in an excellent location. Service was friendly and efficient. A very busy evening but everyone appeared to be having a good time. The food was first class, fresh and locally sourced - highly recommended.

A small put style restaurant owned by long standing local family. Mostly fish caught locally by the Beer fishing folk is served tastfully with various salads. Also served is the local brew. The only outdoor seating is two bench seats looking onto the road. No seating at the rear unfortunately. Situated about 200 mtres from the waters edge.

My wife and I came here in April 2013. Upon arriving we were disappointed by the decor but nonetheless we thought we'd give it a go as a local had said it was it good. There was only one other person in the venue but we knew we were out of season. We were given the menu and told that... More

We visited just after Christmas. We live locally and hadn't been since the name change. The food was excellent. We had two whole crab, two sea bream, oysters. Some things were not available on the menu but that was understandable given the Christmas period. The service was good , particularly the Polish guy. I don't think the owner was there.... More

What a lovely relaxing place to have a meal and drink in the small fishing village of beer, it's like stepping back in time. Don't allow children under 5 so a bonus if trying to get away from the kids! Great food great choice of drinks partially old ales and a great welcome. Very friendly.

Lunchtime and the 4 of us were looking for a "light bite". We went in and, although it was very quiet it looked interesting. I had mussels and my partner had risotto. Our friends had sandwiches, one crab and one ham. My mussels were excellent, fat and juicy in a creamy sauce. My partner said her risotto was the 'best... More

Now called the Seafood Platter four of us had a good meal. The Pork belly was good as were the fish dishes. They even did a good vegetarian risotto. The staff were friendly and although the decor still needs attention, we had a really good exerience there and would definitely go back.
