The food here is grand. Not great, grand. I dont agree with plating fish and chips up with tartar sauce all over the plate and the chips resting on tartar sauce and then the fish on top of that.

The fish croquette starter was very well presented and tasty. The steak was perfectly cooked with crispy fried onions and pepper sauce. The cod with hollandaise sauce was delicious and also perfectly cooked. Excellent food, reasonable priced with great service worth a visit.

Warm welcome, immediately brought to a good table (it was in fairness quiet). Both my companions and I thought that each and every dish warranted a trial. Even though I'm vegetarian that (very occasionally) eats fish - everything looked good on the menu - and the real thing was even better. We each had something different and shared around. Both...

I had the surf and turf and it was the best I've had in a long time. Kitchen is open view so you can see chefs cooking your food. Service was very fast too - definately recommend!
