Only went in here as we were struggling to find a table elsewhere for lunch and I'm so glad that I did! Not the largest menu in the world, but a large enough selection to ensure there is bound to be something you like. The food was excellent, was reasonably priced and the waitress was absolutely superb, in fact she... More

We booked this restaurant based on reviews but weren't disappointed. The staff were helpful and accommodating, and when asked for a vegetarian pancake dish no longer on the menu, the kitchen was happy to make it for me. You can eat downstairs in the bar area, or upstairs where we sat in the restaurant area. The fish platter was enormous,... More

We run a very busy b&b just outside the old town, so sometimes getting some time out for us isn't always easy. So it's always good when we've made the right choice of place to eat. Service was superb and friendly, the staff do not stop and clearly do their best to keep on top of what was a busy... More
