Great place, fab food, loads of fish dishes to choose from, kids menu was varied & they do an early bird cheaper option if you go before 6pm.

My husband and I were blown away by the starter. He had scallops and I had the calamari from the specials board. These were succulent and delicious. Our mains were not as good as the starter. The lady in charge was friendly and welcoming. Great value for money though!
