“Beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This has been a favourite with our family including young children for 3 years. The staff are attentive and helpful with children, and the food is varied enough not to have a problem with their food. We very much enjoy the food and the wines and would recommend going to anyone with older folk or the very young. It has just been revamped and is a more practical layout now. Also on a good day it is lovely to sit outside.

“Well worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Excellent food, Excellent service.
Felt a little uncomfortable when we received the bill as we always tip if we feel the service was great however to discover they put a 10 % tip on before even asking the customer if everything was ok, i felt it a little rude.

Thank you for the great review apologies you do not like our service policy, I promise it is discretionary and we do try to state it on all menus. We will always take it off without question if someone doesn't want to leave it.

Hope we can welcome you back

“Another Alex Aitkin winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Had the set menu for lunch with friends. The food and service were on a par with the Jetty (also owned by Alex Aitkin) and the location over looking Christchurch Harbour is stunning. Full a la carte, fixed price and snack menus make this a winning combination

“Lovely Views and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We went today to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary..and what a treat.

We opted for the Locally Sourced Set Menu and had crab and prawn cocktail followed by sea bream with mussels in a creamy sauce both were delicious and then to cool us off as it was a beautifully warm day we both went for sorbets all for £19.90 each.

The setting, views and decor are some thing special.
