“Great meal, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Recently placed a large advance order for our Guide group, we turned up stressed and very late (at closing time) but couldn't fault the way they handled it. Great food, plenty of picky eaters among us but no empty plates and the service was fantastic. We offered to take away but they re-opened the restaurant for us, couldn't have done more to make us welcome. While we were there other customers drifted in and got served (by staff doing unscheduled overtime on a Friday night) with a smile and we left, unhurried, well fed and de-stressed. Very impressed, very grateful, very definitely be back.

“Great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Had a lovely sausage and chips here - fast and hot, can't believe it isn't rated higher in Mablethorpe, as for some people's comments they should really think what they are saying and know the truth surrounding the circumstances. The owner is a lovely lady!! Can't comment on staff as not served by them, served by owner. Will definitely go again, shame the owner is selling, she will be missed!!

“Doesn't take Cards?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Couldn't eat here as they didn't take cards and there was no cashpoint nearby. They are missing a trick. Madness in the age of contactless payment!

We thank you for your feedback and would like to address your concerns. It is true that we do not accept cards, this was not always the case. For a summer we tried to use this payment method however found that it was under-used and therefore disposed of it. The nearest cash point to us is in town but when not busy I have been known to take customers down myself in my car, I know this can't be done all the time, that is obvious, but we do try to make all of our customers happy and I hope this comment from me helps those of you who read it to know to bring cash not cards, even in this technological age!

Many thanks,

Ashley.

“very good fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

we stopped here for lunch, a lenghty wait of 15 minutes for the fish to be cooked but it was worth it, very tasty and would return again

“Just ok, not worth searching out.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Heard good things about this place, so walked round to find it aided by trip advisor app ;-) tables outside needed a wipe down. Ordered a pastie as seen on the menu to be told they don't serve them and didn't realise they were on menu as I was only person to order one all year.
Portion size is small especially as it's quite expensive, would have been nicer on a plate rather than crammed on a poly tray, just because we ate outside as we had our dog. Peas looked grey. Although fish cooked fresh and food was hot, lad said he would shout when it's ready. As there was only one other couple already eating it would have been nice to have brought it to us. Condiment table needed a wipe and only basic condiments, for the price would have likes mayonnaise. Tartar etc.
which was on counter and looked like you had to pay extra for.

Overall just ok, not worth the walk though probably best stay near to town as it's just as good.
