50th Birthday meal

Brilliant location and brilliant food. Could do with a host type roll. They made a mistake on taking our orders but we were a big table of people and they resolved the problem without a fuss.

Heard great reviews of this Pub, alas the only good part was its location and the fabulous views from the Pub, called in for lunch, Owners / Managers are very poor hosts, no welcome whatsoever, I'm sure they have many lean days during the year so need to up their game.We were shown to our table by the manager who...

We stopped in for a bit of lunch with our 2 year old and decided on the Oysters, Crab claws and Chowder. The service was excellent and all the food was delicious, especially the Oysters, which were expertly shucked. Meaty and Juicy. Highly recommended.

Our family ate here recently and we all agreed the food was beautiful. The only downside was the staff and owners were cold - they could do with smile and more effort towards the customer. We just found it a bit factory like (granted they were busy) i.e. eat and move on asap. We weren't offered a dessert - our... More

This place was highly recommended. I couldn't wait. Yes, they were busy. I was seated in a room with one other table. Four different staff served me: utensils, bread, took my order, served food. None looked at me, none said a work other than the food server who said "there you go", nobody stopped by to ask "everything okay". Yes... More

Good and honestly priced seafood in a nice location near the sea. No tourists, beside us and a lovely art gallery and a pub down the road.

We called in by chance. Every table was either occupied or reserved! Luckily one table came free and we got it before the next booking arrived. I had some excellent sea trout stuffed with crab. My wife had cod and our son who wasn't hungry had a bowl of soup. All were excellent as was the service. The prices weren't... More

A lovely Irish pub with friendly staff, great food and superb drinks. A beautiful view right from the bar which gets even better if you take your drink outside to the end of the pier which is a great place to be for sun set (which was at about 10pm when we were there). A great place to stop if... More
