Excellent value

We were squeezed in as we had not booked, but this didnt mean the service was anything short of excellent. We shared a nacho starter which in fairness could have served 4. My wife went for the swordfish which was huge, her only complaint was that it had to much sauce and would recommend asking... read more

This restaurant which seems to be named Charlies Steakhouse and Grill when viewed from the next door Sports Bar which is named Charlies is excellent. We discovered it by going for a drink in the aforementioned Sports Bar and managed to get a table on Mothering Sunday without pre booking with only a 20 minute wait, even though it was... More

Called for a G & T late afternoon on Monday - made to feel most welcome & toasted the new arrival 'Joey' (son of Dave & his lovely partner). Superb harbour location, we sat outside & enjoyed the sunshine whilst watching the boats go about their business & people watching.

Good service and decent price. We also visited one evening when there was some sort of pool match on. (Great name for a pool team... More
