We were three adults and a 5yr old and we were shown to a table quickly although the place was busy. The starters of crab bruschetta and ham hock terrine were very good as were the fish and chips and sea... More

Really enjoyed our visit here. Food and service were both great. It was extremely busy as it always is so booking is essential. Small menu but good range of specials to pick from.

From the food to the service, everything about our evening was terrible considering the price we paid for our badly presented (and one meal even on a chipped plate) over cooked food. Nothing was offered to solve our disappointment. Will not be returning
