My wife and I went with another couple who recommended The Clipper on the strength of a past visit to it. It was terrible. All we wanted was breakfast and tea/coffee. It took half an hour just to place an order. The food was OK when we eventually got it but the staff were surly and unwelcoming. We will not... More

Staff and food were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for them and I enjoyed our chats,. Loved the model ships on display, now building my own. Wife particularly liked the banana curry ! I liked everything. Good variety on the menu.

We were taken here by a local who said it was the best place to eat - well I can see why it is rated near the top on here and why he brought us here. Great friendly service and nice choice on menu with a few veggie options as well if you wanted. Was busy when we arrived but... More

But then if we'd wait a bit they'd see what could be done. What was done was adding a chair to a table for two and making... More

We had been told this place had good food and nice environment, whew! To be fair I think our friends ate there about a decade ago. Out table of 6 left after beers, without eating more than one of onion rings on the plate...and deciding not to order any entrees, the waitress laughed and took order off our bill and... More

Wasn't overly impressed on service. food was nice more like a hustle and bustle of busy cafe feel than a relaxing restaurant. We visited on a sun and had sunday lunch which was nice

Ate here several times and every time we've had a pleasant waitress serve us . The food is yummy and delicious. Great value for money. It's a popular place so it does get busy quickly.
