“Chowder delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Dined here last week.Fabulous food. For lovers of seafood just ask the owner what you like and how much you want to spend, he will then prepare a meal you will remember for the rest of your life!

“What a great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

had a works night out and meal here last night. The service and food was great and all 11 in the party had a great meal. The bar area was a little small but the staff were really accomodating with requests. The bar was tiny with limited drinks and only 1 lager pump on but a good wine list. Would recommend.

“Food superb .....owners knowledge excellent. .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

The food was outstanding. . Had a platter and the owner (who seems to get mixed reviews on here) helped advise on what dishes we could add/swap depending on what was best that day. . Seriously food excellent and personally I welcomed owners suggestions. .

“Overbearing for my tastes.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The food was nice enough,we had the table wine and it was awful! The owner Im sure is pleasant enough but I did find him too overbearing im afraid and slightly rude.Im sure he meant no actual harm by it but Im afraid it ruined my experience at dining here on this occasion.

“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Me and my wife ate here last night and thought the food was fantastic.We had the chowder and fish cake for starters,and then the owner recommended a plaice dish wich was very tasty well cooked and well presented. We found the owner who is the meet and greet person to be very friendly and chatty, he is a real character. We didn't take him to seriously and joined in with his jokes but can see how some people might find him a little in your face. We would definitely go again as we are from Scarborough take the owner with a pinch of salt :-) we enjoyed his banter !
