This's been under new management for ages, as a Chinese Restaurant, 'Matou'. I've been trying to get the message through for more than a year.

Nautical decor, with sailing ship paintings scattered amongst other sailing/fishing decor. If you order the sea food platter make sure you bring a healthy appetite and more than 2 people.

Smiley, friendly service, great location and fab food!!
