Ate dinner here recently and had a very creamy but rather tasteless seafood chowder and fish and chips with batter that was not fully cooked and hence mushy. Rather unpleasant. The restaurant is in the middle of town, with a pleasant appearance, and service was OK. Still, given the poor quality of the food I was served, I would not... More

Saturday last minute lunch. Accomodating and such nice staff. The food was so pleasant. Basic but such a nice selection we had trouble deciding. Kept the poor staff coming back to see if they could help.

The service is among the best I have experienced. Pleasant attentive staff anticipating your needs. The food matches the service and the Fixed Price menu is a steal

This restaurant is tucked away, but well worth finding. My wife enjoyed her fish dish, but I was disappointed by my mozzarella and aubergine tart. Firstly it was one of those puff pastry things (not shortbread), and the aubergine was apparently in the green 'paste'.

We popped in on the off-chance for lunch on a Saturday and were very pleasantly surprised. The internal decor is perhaps a little stuffy but it was a sunny day and we sat outside. The wine and cocktails ordered were delicious and appropriately summery and the food was both very nicely presented and full of flavour.

We met with friends in Stamford for a Sunday lunch at Number 3. None of us had been here before so were guided by tripadvisor. It proved to be a very enjoyable experience and one we would be keen to repeat. The mussels were good and the hake very well cooked accompanied by samphire and salsify -like a masterchef dish!...

My twin daughters and I went for dinner for their birthday on the 25th June. The food was good with enthusiastic though slightly inexperienced staff (failure to bring cutlery etc). Lovely touch with the happy birthday plates and the singing. Very good overall,

Although not pre-booked, we were offered a table inside or outside -outside is a small area under the cover of corrugated plastic which is enough to keep showers off but not heavy rain. There is a choice of small as well as normal portions Staff were very friendly
