great fish cooked well. not the cheapest but good value, also offers so really good local wines. The staff are polite and friendly. Service good. It is a good place to eat for any special occassions. I really liked the way the produce is sourced locally.

Lovely meal. The fish was cooked to perfection and my husband enjoyed an excellent cheese board after. The staff were helpful and very knowledgeable about the menu. It was very busy when we went on a Wednesday evening so probably best to book.

Very good selection of fish dishes very well cooked. When I phoned to book a table for 7pm I was advised to actually book for 6.45 so that I could benefit from a 20% discount on the food cost. I felt this was great customer service and duly received the discount. The food and service were excellent and I will... More

Excellent service, varied menu and we had steak and fish dishes, all were lovely. Pudding too was excellent. And going early meant we could take advantage of their early bird discount, so great value for money.

We made a reservation and they are needed in season on week ends so be aware. The restaurant was full ( about 40 covers) which says quite a lot I feel. Lovely cheerful welcome and orders for a drink whilst we considered the menu. Extensive fish and sea food menu as you would expect but several different variations available. We... More

The starter menu is excellent but the main dishes are uninspiring and prosaic. I ordered the hake with crab crust which was dry and overbaked. My partner decided to have two starters which were good. Main gripes were lack of sauces, seasoning,dry vegetables. Side dishes were perfunctory, consisting of new potatoes, chips!! And basic vegetables none of which were seasoned... More

This restaurant earns it's place in the top 5 places to eat in Sidmouth. Concentrating mainly on fish dishes, it's menu has a mouth watering selection that is hard to choose from. My wife said her turbot in smoked salmon sauce was the best fish dish she had ever eaten. My scallops also were excellent. Clean and fresh decor, excellent... More

We booked here based on previous trip advisor ratings and were certainly not disappointed. The restaurant is in easy walking distance of the seafront, don't know about parking. We both ordered the skate, which was cooked beautifully. There were many things on the menu (mainly fish) that looked appealing, all reasonably priced for a quality meal. The service was friendly,...
