Popped in for lunch. The place is quite shabby inside - it really could do with a freshen up. The staff were good but the food was poor. We both had the cottage pie. Lumpy tasteless potato and poor quality mince which had lots of gristle in it. The accompanying veg were overcooked. It reminded us of school dinners of... More

Beautiful good old fashioned surroundings, and unbeatable Service, the Waitress really does know her... More

Decor is a bit dated but super service and great food made up for it. Great location right in the middle of Ramsey with easy parking right next to it. Well recommended.

We ate here twice during TT week mainly due to the lack of chips ! We were based in Ramsey for 7 days, so needed to find a dinner every night. Apart from Indian and Chinese, everywhere else seemed to offer meals mainly accompanied by chips. The fish pie was excellent with some lightly steamed veg. Soup was very tasty.... More

We arrived at the restaurant at opening time and were shown to a pleasant table by the window overlooking the harbour. We were the only people there at the... More

This restaurant, in a lovely location in the port of Ramsey, offers traditional cuisine with no frills and a friendly service. Definitely a good address.
