When we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted by the rudest and most unprofessional middle aged man I've ever come across. He started by saying .... We can't fit you in ... Then he found us a...

Can recommend all of those courses, perfectly cooked and very tasty! Left the restaurant feeling very stuffed full of delicious food. Lovely atmosphere on the boat and... More

We are from the north east visiting friends. We arrived not knowing the area at all and stumbled across this place at about 10:15pm. They seated us without any hesitation despite closing at 11:00pm. The service was excellent with a good choice of drinks, and the food was exceptional. We recommended this to our friends too. One of the best... More

My husband and I enjoyed a set menu for two people that was amazing value for money. We were both so full we couldn't finish the mains or our desserts. The food was wonderful and the service was outstanding and we were so well looked after. We will be sure to go back for more amazing food!
