Memorable lunch here. The oysters to start, sourced from their own oyster beds, were superb. The signature main course of crab, together with appropriate implements for demolition and consumption, was excellent with accompanying fresh samphire. Service attentive, despite a full restaurant. Important to book here,...More

My wife and I visited here one evening arriving at 20:30 following several recommendations by friends. We sat in the back room. It was quite noisy as there was a family with teenagers. This was OK as they added to the atmosphere. The servers were...More

We were staying in Wyke Regis for the weekend and I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. The fact they served oysters had me hooked straight away. We booked (recommended) a Saturday lunch time for 12 noon. My first niggle was with the booking. I...More
