This restaurant came recommended and was very disappointed. Food poor. Ordered Scallops - which were overcooked - served on mashed potatoes - tasteless. Over priced.

Bouillabaisse, to my mind is a classic fish stew....fresh pieces of various fish cooked in good fish stock, with some tomatoes, perhaps with some fennel & croutons.....not here, mine had overcooked pieces of fish, in a bland creamy sauce which I'm guessing was coloured by saffron. My wife ordered Monkfish which again was not very fresh, and had the texture... More

I ate here last Saturday night with 4 friends. The service was excellent as was the food. We had chowder, bruschetta and crab gratin to start, and all seafood mains which were really flavoursome. Desserts were chocolate brownie, apple & rhubarb crumble and bailey's cheesecake and again all delicious. There were plenty of gluten free options across the 3 courses.... More

We had not booked and were pleased to be welcomed on a busy Saturday evening. Crab gratin, seafood chowder, monkfish and steak were all good, service was attentive and we finished sharing a creme brûlée.

We were a group of 8 for dinner on Bank Holiday Friday. The restaurant was fairly quiet (as was the rest of the town surprisingly) so we were seated and looked after promptly. There was a sign outside saying "Friday night is steak night" so all 8 of us had ribeye steaks! They were delicious as were the accompaniments. I... More

We were staying in a nearby B&B and wanted something more than fish & chips. I looked on Tripadvisor and found The Olde Bakery. We walked around town for awhile and then went to the restaurant. The inside was clean looking and modernish, while it still retained warmth. We were seated at a nice table fortwoin the front window. I... More

I was here the other night for an impromptu dinner and thankfully they had space. The place was pretty busy. We were sitting with our menus for a while and I eventually got to order a glass of wine (which was delicious) and the monkfish which came in this cream parmesan sauce that I could have eaten all day. They... More
