Dock o' the Bay is an unpretentious, quirky place with great food and great service. I went on a couple of recommendations from friends and wasn't disappointed. The food is priced about right for the quality and the waiting staff are very attentive and friendly. I highly recommend the mussels to start and the pork belly.

I have been a few times mainly at lunch time with work colleagues but wanted to take my husband and friends, particularly as one has moved just round the corner. I have always enjoyed the food and hopes that my friend weren't disappointed. They weren't! All five of us had three courses and the food was stunning. I have to... More

Been here about 3 times in all and have never been disappointed with the quality of food offered and served on the menu, the wine options and the overall ambience of what is a lovely little restaurant. If you can manage to park outside, it's well worth a visit.

perfectly nice but nothng to write home about, apart from the very pleasant staff. It is on quite a busy main road, though not noisy inside.

Stumbled on this place as we were staying over the road and didn't want to drive anywhere. We ate on a weekday and off the weekday special menu. Everything was cooked beautifully, portion sizes were excellent and service was spot on.
