We stumbled across this restaurant by chance during a recent 3 day visit to Scarborough. As it was closed during the daytime, we took a note of its telephone number and reserved a table for the following evening. We were not disappointed, being warmly welcomed by the friendly staff, and made to feel at home by the owner who came... More

Our 2nd visit and standards have remained exceptional! The food was to die for and the service was excellent. William sat with us and chatted, asking what kind of food we wanted. This level of friendliness and welcoming is a refreshing change and shows the commitment and passion of the owner. We cannot recommend this restaurant enough to seafood lovers!... More

Due to the posting restrictions this is actually 3 reviews! On Thursday 2nd we enjoyed mussels followed by Sole with crab and crayfish, and chowder followed by Turbot with prawns and figs (there were no scallops available!). We couldn’t manage the Cheese board! In August I visited on Tuesday and thoroughly enjoyed the chowder, hake and pulled pork, and cheese... More

What a wonderful experience! The service was excellent the best part was the chowder and the lobster of course! It was so nice to go to a restaurant when they knew how to prepare seafood to perfection. Thoroughly recommended.

This establishment never disappoints frankly. Quite simply, William has a gem of a restaurant which serves some of the best fish around. And he experiments, the "Scotch Egg" style starter I tried as clever as well as tasty. I should also mention the way he uses black pudding and chorizo - one will be enlightened believe me. If you go... More

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from a visit 7 years ago, and did not really know what to expect. The initial welcome by William was unusual to say the least, but over the course of the evening we came to understand the method behind his madness - he chats to the customers while the food is being prepared...

Owned and run by William Bell who is a great character. He likes to speak to all his guests while you are waiting for your table. We have eaten here a few times now and have never been disappointed. This is a fairly small restaurant and the service is personal - William always makes you feel welcome - roll on... More

We visited this restaurant to sample the seafood platter for two, we were not disappointed. What you don't get is a large plate of seafood with a freeforall dive in. The platter is five courses of seafood, all individual and all superbly cooked and presented. My two favourites were the seafood chowder with Thai fish cake and sweet chilli sauce,... More

Such a shame, as this restaurant has such a lot going for it. Excellent service, attractive decor, bread, vegetables, desserts etc all good BUT all the fish we had was severely overcooked. Two lovely pieces of skate had been grilled to oblivion - instead of the classic fried in butter with capers as promised by the menu - and was... More
