My wife and I were looking to have a drink overlooking the beach and sea and had heard that Steamer Inn was a decent place. Granted, it probably is, but we were put off by the attitude of one of the waitresses. We walked towards the bar to see what was on offer to drink but our paths were quickly... More

We went purposely to this restaurant for the seafood sharing platter however we were told that they had ran out of lobster. After a bit of training and throwing we were able to have half a lobster and the meal at a reduce price. The gourmet burger was amazing especially with the goats cheese and caramelised red onions on top.... More

My wife and I decided to try this place out having read reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Due to inclement weather we were expecting a bit if a wait for a table due to the fact that the tables outside were not usable. However by the time we had ordered a drink at the bar the young...

This place was packed when we got there which I think is a good sign! We waited about 10 mins to get a table, we sat on the veranda with a heat lamp on looking out to see which was great. We ordered our food at the bar and didn't have to wait too long. The atmosphere was nice with... More

We live locally and were thinking about dinner but wanted to have a drink first. There were tables outside but we were told we could only stand at the bar or sit on the sofa (full). We left.

We visited for tea on a friday night. Family of four with two children, 9 and 11. There was a band playing and the atmosphere was great. Unfortunately the only table available was sat right in front of the band. I must say we were warned about this by the waitress before we chose to dine. I didn't mind but... More
