“The meal was not dire”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

In fact it was very good and not expensive considering it is owned by a celebrity (guitarist John Illsley from Dire Straits)

“One of my favourites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

We've been coming here for 10 years and we've seen the place evolve - some years the food has been gastronomic (and expensive) but at the moment is it good "gastro pub" standard with really good service. They always use local food (fish is very good) and the meals are very well presented. A meal is typically £40 for two.

“Gastro Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

If you're prepared to drive a bit - 10 mins or so, from the Pepperbox, a visit here is well worth while. It gets very busy, so book - even mid week in April there was not a spare table to be had. Good food, well made, fish is a speciality.

“A GEM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

Enjoyable small bar with good beers. The food was excellent and nicely presented. Both the mussels and pork main courses were top notch and reasonably priced. The dining area is pleasantly presented and the staff are friendly and attentive
