Reservation made without and hassle and very attentive staff throughout the evening. Nothing was too much trouble. Scollops, fish and chips were all good as we're the crab cakes.

We found the staff very friendly and helpful and the food was very tasty. Michael was very attentive and gave us good advice and the Chowder was very nice. Good value for money.
