Great service, so much so that they let me send back my wine I didn't like free of charge. Beautifully cooked fish. That's all I need to say really.

Will is happy to offer advice and suggestions on the current catches of the day. We have tried different dishes every time. The ambience is relaxed and welcoming. Do... More

We enjoyed tasty fish dinners here on Friday. Having been greater by friendly staff we enjoyed a drink whilst perusing the menu....plenty choice but not so much that we couldn't decide. My Scallops with black pudding, and lobster we're delicious - I was told half a lobster would be enough with the salad and a side order of chips which... More

Called in on Sunday early evening which was fairly quiet. Met by a friendly young lady who made us very welcome. Lots of interesting things on the menu but not too many so you don't get over faced with choices. Went for the blackened salmon. Unfortunately they had run out of the salmon but suggested I go for Hake as... More

I hosted a meal for two business guests. We had a drink before hand and the chef was enthusiastic about his fare which raised our expectations but the delivery was distinctly average. Food was not very tasty though presentation had as ever been thought about too much. Service also was average [was not very busy] and the head price was... More

Went with friends early evening place not busy. Seated in cramped 'bar area' ordered drinks whilst browsing menu. Felt hassled to choose from pretentious mainly fish menu. I felt mixture of ingredients in each main course very odd combinations! We made choices and were quickly shown to our table. Starters came within minutes of sitting down. Main courses were poorly...

When you arrive here you are sent to the small lounge to look at the menus. What we did not initially realise was that the fat man also sitting in the lounge on his own was going to listen in on our deliberations, and, unasked, start telling us what to eat. We felt we were bullied into ordering more than... More

Dear Sir/Madam , Thank You for taking your time to write a review about your recent visit. I would normally start off with apologies; however , first of all , I do not appreciate , you starting the complaint by calling the owner 'fat' .
