This place has a lovely atmosphere. I went as part of a large party and they managed not to keep us waiting long for our food. When we wanted something - extra bread, more drinks, it was catered for quickly and with a smile, even when a fussier member of our group asked for something that wasn't on the menu.... More

I have the good fortune to live in Horning and until I moved here I wouldn't have really chosen a restaurant that only served seafood for an evening out, however after being "persuaded" by my wife to try it, I have come to realise just how enjoyable well prepared and well presented seafood dishes can be. Since trying this restaurant... More

We visited this restaurant twice on a 10 day holiday. The food is delicious, if you love fresh fish and seafood. The restaurant has no menus as such, it relies on a chalkboard with the freshest fish available on that day. On our first visit we both had a starter of Cromer crab, served in the shell with pesto mayo... More

We dined in this restaurant on a Wednesday night in early November, so it was pretty quiet. Service was attentive without being cloying and the food was excellent. Portions were an appropriate size to enable us to have 3 courses without feeling bloated. This meant that we had a leisurely evening together without scurrying off after one course. The wine...
