“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Great food and great setting (old courthouse) at reasonable price. Our meals were delicious and the menu choices were great too - even for vegetarians. Definitely go back when next in Qtn.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

From the outside and the inside this place looks like a million bucks and you'd think the price to eat here would be the same, however ... it was very VERY reasonably priced and the service was 5 star. We had starters which came out quickly and were absolutely delicious. Our mains were well cooked and tasty - we couldnt help ourselves and even shared a dessert! Great selection of dishes to choose from and well worth a visit.

“Good for a low key meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We were looking for somewhere to have a nice, quiet and casual dinner.
We came across this restraunt set in an old building at about 7:30pm.
It was quite small and cosy inside with plenty of outdoor seating available (weather permitting).
There was a section for dining and a section for the bar which had tvs with the olympics on.
Most of the tables in the bar area were full but there were only a couple of occupied tables in the dining area.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially a young gentleman (who I think was Irish...).
We had seafood chowder, ribs and an apple crumble for dessert.
Meals were good value and quality for the price and we certainly left feeling super full.
