From start to finish we had another wonderful meal at Memories. What more do you want than good company, good service, value for money along with an excellent meal. The venison main course just melted in the mouth combined with a beautiful sauce. You will travel a long way to get food better than this (apart from the wife's cooking... More

Visited Memories after reading all the good comments and was not disappointed! Hazel as front of house is ideal in that role making you feel instantly welcome but the food is absolutely superb. We both had the crab cakes which are all white crab meat with no"padding" so that the full flavour of the crab comes through. We then both... More

My wife and I have been to Memories on three occasions this year, with friends. The food is always first class and the husband/wife team that own and run this small restaurant always make you welcome. The menu is varied with excellent fish choices. Prices are reasonable. As it is only open on a Friday/Saturday night, booking is vital. Some... More
