“Breakfast with a stunning view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

It was a blustery morning but the covered deck has adjustable side awnings which allows one to control the wind and thus the whole experience is very comfortable yet fresh. We were a little concerned about paying $16 for breakfast but when scrambled eggs with crispy bacon and grilled tomatoes arrived all concerns were quickly disspelled. My pile of eggs were cleverly mounded on top of the bacon and tomatoes with the thickly cut soda bread as a foundation. It is a little daunting to tackle but quite ingenious because the bacon and tomatoes are kept hot for far longer by the delicious eggs. My wifes eggs and salmon looked very tasty and her long silence was confirmation of this. This breakfast was superb and we cant wait to go back and try out the chefs lunch or dinner or both. The waitress was friendly and very efficient and helpful and we will be back.

“not for me”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Sorry - we didn't like this restaurant but there wasn't a lot of choice on a Monday night in St Helens and the Blue Shed (which had been recommended seemed rather expensive) I would label this a typical pub meal. The restaurant has a good view out on to the water.
