We had the Bosun's Platter (but must assume that the Bosun was either on a diet or not very hungry - more like a £14 snack for... More

The food and service in this 'ship' is excellent. Having enjoyed the local crab salad one day we made a beeline back for another soon after. it was to die for... 11 out of 10 for both the service and the food, served by very welcoming staff.
