“Amazing seafood platter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Really cosy restaurant which is well worth a visit. There were four of us that ate here and we all had a seafood platter from the specials board. It came with king prawns, lemon sole, battered cod, scallops and seabass, all beautifully cooked. Sadly we we're too full for puddings but they all looked delicious!

“The third coming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Jesus Christ top notch best 3 rd time new menu the seafood platter was excellent so many flavours! She had the fillet steak with port n Stilton sauce plates cleaned! Loved it the staff are like busy bees so don't expect silver service but if anything is wrong they will rectify VERY quickly! Got dessert too!! Summer fruit pudding and mermaid mess! If anyone one dislikes these desserts they are moronic us greedy uns scoffed the lot and it tasted fantastic thank you the mermaid and the great food experience with the new presentation in little chip baskets really made us enjoy the experience of food much better loved it thanks and will definitely be going again for the fourth year and we are fussy buggers! These guys are on form thank you too the mermaid for making our holiday more enjoyable for yet another year
