Pleasant

Food was excellent ( need to go easy on salad tho ..... Too much lettuce on plate, plus needs dressing we asked and got some) pudding was yummy. Waitress was very pleasant. Only complaint was it was very cold despite having two gas heaters going. Need more heat.

We have gone to Estuarys several times and have never been disappointed. Many restaurants do not cook seafood well, or do not consistently do it well. This has never been the case here - the scallops are absolutely divine. Whenever we are asked to recommend a restaurant Estuarys is always top of the list. Decor may be a little dated... More

Staff at Estuarys seemed surprised when 13 of us turned up for dinner on Wednesday night. It seems the 'lovely man' mentioned in a previous review may have failed to note more than one booking before he left, even though he was said by our booking person to have phoned back and confirmed. Once the initial surprise was over, the... More

Recently went on what was likely the coldest day of winter so far, I was shocked we were given no choice but to sit in what could be considered no more than a tent. I give the lovely man credit, he cranked all the gas heaters up but it was still freezing. By the end of the night my feet... More

We booked and came here on a Friday night - and it was a lot quieter than we expected. The bread sharing starter was very good - nice fresh, soft bread and tasty sides with it. Our mains were delicious - I had the Lamb Wellington and can't fault it! (I live in the UK in Cambridgeshire where the 'wellington'... More

Enjoyed the food. Good service. Heaters give a warm atmosphere on a cold night. Plenty on the menu from which to choose.

We were allocated a table outside which had a magnificant view of the estuary. There was a excellent menu with something for everyone. The food was delicious - well prepared and presented. We took advantage of Bring your Own wine - a bonus. The service was excellent not hurried but efficient. One of the best meals we had during our... More

Visited Estuarys purely by chance and was very impressed. Excellent menu with plenty of choice. I chose the John Dory fish for mains and don't think I have ever eaten fresher fish. Beautifully presented and superb flavours in the accompanying mash and vegetables made this a standout meal for me. Dessert menu very tempting, including the Whittaker chocolate pudding which...

Small quiet restaurant with a good range of dishes and wines plus blackboard specials which our party of threes chose from. Good service, great food, and nice atmosphere in a restaurant attached to a motel/motor lodge.
