Went to mallams, read good reviews so thought we would try it. On entering we were greeted with a frosty reception from a lady who took the orders. The young staff were great. The lady in question spoiled our evening. The food was lovely but wouldn't go again.

Thank you for your review. I assume you were the person who also wrote to the restaurant but did not furnish us with a name or address? I am the lady in question and have owned the restaurant for twenty six years, so as you can imagine it is not my remit to try and spoil the evening of any... More

A delightful experience. Small, intimate and charming decor and with views across the marina. The food was divine. Beautifully balanced apple, goat's cheese and beetroot salad followed by a 'special' of gurnard with linguine, mussels and cockles. Great wine too. Not cheap, but I don't mind paying for really good food. Bit of a grumpy waitress, but you can't have... More

Excellent fish dishes and fine dining restaurant. Average to high end dining prices but worth every penny, food cooked to perfection with good service, friendly and attentive but unobtrusive. Good choice of wines and non-alcoholic drinks. Booking advisable.

We were moored up virtually opposite the restaurant and booked for dinner. Pleasant staff. Nice wines and meal ... Starters were lovely as was the fillet steak; rest AOK. Little bit on the pricey side. Overall we would recommend, but choose carefully.

it started off badly and got worse. The service was appalling. We were asked twice by two members of staff if we'd like a drink. We had to ask 3 times for the wine menu. Having made our selection we were kept waiting for the staff to finish there prolonged and seemingly highly amusing conversation. I ordered 2 meals from... More

Thank you for your review.

We are very... More

Very pleasant atmosphere and great food in a nice location on the harbourside. We enjoyed the home baked bread which came with the starter and the generous portions from the interesting menu.

Booked by my wife as a surprise meal at a fish restaurant as I enjoy my fish, and not dissaponinted. Even my wife as a non fish eater enjoyed the meal very much, she had the Lamb, and as she said the menu has something for everyones taste. The previous night we had a meal at Prezzo's, not knowing where... More

We were happy to see dirty martini's on the drinks menu and ordered one each immediately. The bar tender demonstrated he knew his business by asking how dry we wanted each martini, a very good sign :-) The martini's were very near perfect - I'd definitely go back just for one of them. Jody and Jack(?) were terrific bar/wait staff,... More

We visited here for our anniversary for a special meal. Wow, we are very glad we did, it had a fantastic atmosphere, great staff and amazing food. I had the seafood and fish casserole, it was amazing, my wife had the catch of the day which was also outstanding. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone

Description
Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since 1990. The restaurant is in an beautiful position with views of the bustling harbour.The Tudor beams and stone walls of the listed building have a traditional feel but are complemented by contemporary decor. The food is very definitely in the 21st century, an eclectic mix of ideas from British cuisine, with a touch of French and some Asian influence as well, always using the freshest, local produce. Seafood is much in evidence, as you would expect, but meat, game and poultry feature too.All this mixed with exciting wines and cocktails and friendly and attentive service and a really personal touch from the hands on owners make this a venue to remember. We are always happy to discuss your requirements for special celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and we will be pleased to design a special menu just for you.
