Fantastic menu with a lot of choice. They have really put their personal touch on the meals. I had fish and it's one of the best fish meals I've had... and I'm quite fuzzy when it comes to fish. Deserts are great and well put together and presented nice. I'm really looking forward to come back.

The menu is plentiful and the portions are a good size. The choice for vegetarians is slightly lacking and the actual offering was not great. (Vegetarian Salad - coleslaw, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and a Pile of grated cheddar: ** The only Veggie option on the salad menu) The Meat eaters in our party were very happy with their food however....

Despite the drab exterior and the lack of signage to direct you to the restaurant, persevere it worth the effort. The staff were helpful and friendly with our dietary requirements (gluten and dairy intolerance) A quick pre booking phone call confirmed tbat they could cope. We were able to chose from a good selection on the menu and it was... More

Waitress was very friendly and we had great service throughout our meal. I had a sirloin steak which was quite fatty, not like Any sirloin I had had before. Apart from that my meal was very tasty - I loved the triple cooked chips and pepper sauce. My mum had the "burger of the week", which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Went here with family looking forward to eating lamb chops in Shetland. I was very disappointed as they were grilled too much. It is important that this nice young waiter from Hungary asks all guests how they prefer their meat cooked. Apart from that I missed seeing the waterfront .....

Have eaten here a few times in the last year, but on the most recent occasion I have to say the food was perfect! Starter, main and dessert were all spot-on, and I think our table of five all agreed. Portion sizes may be a tad smaller than other places, but it meant I could manage three courses without feeling... More
