Really enjoyed my main and my friend cleared her plate also. Really enjoyable time. Took a while to get someone's attention... read more

Thought we'd round off a shopping trip with a meal here as previously had eaten here on a few occasions and it had been fine fare.The restaurant was pretty busy which we thought was a good sign.Don't make the mistake we did of looking for a free table ourselves as certain staff obviously take umbrage at ignorant Joe Public entering...

We arrived on a weekday afternoon and were not greeted by any staff. We were then shown to a dark table in the corner away from all other diners I suspect because we have a one year old! This was despite it being a lovely warm sunny day and there being at least 2 empty tables overlooking the bay. These... More

The mains left a LOT to be desired my steak baguette was the spiciest thing I've had in years!! I put it back and eventually cancelled it as everyone else had finished eating and... More

Went there with my boyfriends and his family for a coffee and got that they're still cleaning so they can't serve us. The place is not welcoming at all.

A very nice meal of good, wholesome pub grub. The haddock was the best I have had in a long time and the desserts were all very good. A really good find and even better if you get a table by the window overlooking the bay.

I took my father for lunch very impressed by the variety of choices on menu. Dad said his fish was lovely and my roast beef was very tasty. None of the staff appeared to be local but they were very pleasant and efficient.
