The in-betweener

If there were a better than average but a bit below very good category this would fit the bill. Food was good, fresh, well presented, but atmosphere let things down. Hard to pinpoint, harsh lighting, wonky off station background music (two hours and no-one fixed it, or still still switched it off... read more

We've been here a few times over the last couple of years. On a couple of occasions we sat in the restaurant, which was nice. On other occasions we sat in the bar, which I did not enjoy. The food is fine, not amazing, and the prices are perfectly reasonable. Service is, as with many places, perfect most of the... More

The Fisherman's Arms has a great choice on the menu, full gourmet type meals, smaller portions, and sandwiches all at a very fair price for the standard of cuisine. Very friendly staff (including the owners) pleasing décor and the best coffee in the area!

Myself and 8 other girlies booked a table here last Friday evening, it was a last minute booking as our original choice cancelled our booking, due to family circumstances, however the Fishermans could fit us in, which we felt for a party of our size was exceptional on such short notice. We duly arrived all glammed up and looking for... More

Fabulous three course lunch as part of a large party and the staff were incredibly helpful with my gluten allergy and provided me with a separate menu as well as ways they can alter some dishes to make allergen free. The food was fantastic! We were a party of thirteen and there were clean plates all round. Two big thumbs... More

We should have known better, but having had previous weekday lunches here we did not even consider that lunch on a Sunday could be so different - and so disappointing. Service was slow even though by the time we arrived the restaurant was beginning to empty. The Tiger prawns were tasteless on their own, but saved by the marie rose... More

Had a lovely meal there this week. The turkey dinner was excellent with a good variety of vegetables. The service and food quality is always of a high standard. Will be back soon
