Closed down following fire. Check before visiting

Following a fire I believe cafe shore has closed down rumored to become a Jamie Oliver restaurant. Great views from window, good food but over priced in my opinion.

My meal had to be sent back because the meat was inedible. I was there for a friend's Birthday dinner and never like sending food back on these occasions. Waiter offered me another choice. The other diners with me quite enjoyed their meals, but overall the experience was disappointing.

Following an electrical fire the cafe shore has closed down but strongly rumored to become a Rick Stein restaurant in time for the summer season that will rival the excellent Harbour Heights restaurant.

It WAS fabulous. The views were to die for. The food was almost as good. Sadly it's now closed. The local paper reports that it has gone into liquidation following a fire, last year.

Went here on the last night of a stay last year after eating somewhere else so can not comment on the food but the place looked very suave and the bar staff/manager was really friendly. Very comfortable furniture and fittings and mood lighting. Graeme Souness was in there whilst we were there. I understand that they had a major fire... More

Went here for our anniversary. Nice table, lovely views, good service and "OK" food. For the price I would have expected true restaurant quality food but instead it was, what I would call, good pub grub. Only good thing is that it's so expensive it puts off people who make noise.

Was given £100 of Vouchers in June by my Son and Daughter as a Birthday present. Unfortunately I wasn't able to use them, as there was a bad fire at the restaurant in August,, and the Cafe Shore closed. I tried to contact the Restaurant by e-mail and via their website. Most of the time I was ignored. Once they... More
