A family member is a real seafood fan, so the black bull was an obvious choice due to it's reputation. I have to say ordinarily I wouldn't describe myself as a seafood fan, however the food here was amazing. We had actually pre-booked the Lobster as it often does sell out quickly. This I believe is a positive as I... More

Having been numerous times before to this establishment and loved it. When my birthday came round i thought it would be a good idea to return here. Big mistake. New menu has much less choice servers were rude and after eating a pretty poor meal. I went outside to the car and was ill in the car park. Went back... More

The chef, who I think was the owner, really took pride in his food and his pub. He came out to greet the whole group to make sure everything was okay. The waitresses/barstaff treated everyone as family, they were all attentive but not bothersome. This was my first visit but it won't be my last. The seafood was fantastic, they... More

Must admit I would not have thought about stopping here from the outside view but thankfully this pub was recommended to us. We picked from the fish menu and it was some of the loveliest fresh fish I have eaten in the UK. Enjoyed the seafood platter to start and was followed by the sea bass that was cooked to... More

I hadn't been to this establishment for at least 4 years but remembered it as having an excellent specials board and good for fish so thought we would give it a try. The décor and furniture is screaming out for an update but the food is still as good as it ever was.

Visited a couple of times this year. You usually need to book a table as it's quite popular. Some lovely meals on the menu and all well prepared and presented. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Fresh food, cooked well, and served beautifully. Definitely recommend this one!

Yet again we must thank TripAdvisor for finding us a great place to eat. We were travelling in the area, well away from home. The real plus here is the enthusiasm the owners have for the food they serve. We were told where the seafood (a speciality) had been sourced and why it had been chosen. We were tolfd in... More
