Nice enough, but don't try to eat the burgers, tough as old boots. The fish was OK but the burger was hard and gristley

We had two meals here while staying in Charlestown. I wasn't overly struck with my food on the first visit it was OK but a little flavourless, the rest of the family raved about what they'd had and made this the restaurant of choice for our last night on holiday. This time round I thoroughly enjoyed what I'd picked as... More

My husband & I visited the Wreckers on a busy Saturday evening but found the food & service to be first class. The restaurant is stylish with a extensive menu & wine list. The staff were friendly & efficient. Would definitely recommend.

Ideal location, superb quality food, good price and great staff. The restaurant is based in a refurbed old boat shed. You can also eat out. We ate there three times over two days. Both snacks and a full three course meal. The Pastrami sandwich was the best one iv'e ever had.

The food was bland and dry, our waitress was surely and unfriendly although others were cheery and seemed very helpful to the tables they were attending. An experience not to be... More

Came here as a nice rest for my elderly gran and were sadly disappointed. The cakes and puddings were really delicious. I had the chocolate fudge brownie which was really nice, although got a bit sickly after a while as it was a large slice. The waitress was kind enough to suggest the cake to be warmed which was nice... More
