My Wife had been meaning to try this place for some time as we are fresh fish lovers but oh dear !. Something is defiantly missing here & I'm afraid to say it may be atmosphere. Admittedly it was a Wednesday evening & quiet but the fresh fish menu alone is far too big. I cannot see how they could have everything on the menu & the fact they only had one chef on tells me they are not expecting a crowd of people to arrive. The silence was only broken by the sound of a radio playing everywhere & what I believe to be the Landlady & chef arguing with each other. The Crab Bisque starter was good although the roll was in a world of its own with its friend the butter pat but alas the Sea Bass fillet was over cooked and the accompanying vegetables looked like the creation of the guy in Close Encounters. All in all a disappointing visit for food, but if you want Fawlty Towers type entertainment then this is the place.
