This restaurant was recommended to my boyfriend and I by a family member and we are glad we went in. Food was unbelievable fresh seafood, great presentation and lovely flavours. The staff were great! Friendly, attentive and easy to get hold of. Definitely will return!

I have given 4 stars for the following reasons. The restaurant was incredibily busy (festival weekend?) and though we had booked, had to wait 20 minutes to be shown to our table. We had been given a table in the bar area and enjoyed the buzz. We were taken to our table in the main restaurant by a very charming... More

Almost our local, we felt this place had lost its sparkle a little, the menu was too full and it was trying to be all things to all people. However, out for a birthday dinner we were delighted the menu had been revised and thankfully simplified. It made choosing much easier. Steak deal is good value (2 starters, 2 steaks... More

Just dropped in here on a day out with the family and was lucky enough to get a table straight away. Couldn't have been made feel more welcome. My baby daughter (who is teething) was given a toy to amuse her and after we ordered, the owner (I assume) came down to see how we were getting on. He brought... More

Popped in for lunch on Sunday having not been in for about 8 months. The food was fairly average and nothing to get excited about. But the place seems to have gone downhill since we were last in. The bar area was quite dirty with the fireplace full of rubbish which had obviously been there for some time, and thick... More

We booked this restaurant on Sunday evening for dinner, when we arrived we were shown to our table promptly and our drinks order was taken while we read the menu, the drinks arrived and even though the restaurant was very busy we didnt feel rushed in any way while making our choices from the menu, for starters my OH ordered...

Fair enough. We felt that maybe they'd had a busy day and it showed slightly. Wrong order brought for my daughter in law. Although there was nothing wrong with the meal it had no distinguishing features-not memorable for a place with such a reputation. Menu unremarkable. Meh.

We decided to try the new 'Chicken Shack', located at the back or Pier 36, in the outdoor section on Friday evening. £7.95 for 1/2 a Chicken and Chips with Peppercorn Sauce. We all ordered the same thing and we ordered 3 Side Salads at £3.00... More
