Recommended by our local friends and enjoyed the service, the food and the ambience. We followed the advice of our waiter and ordered an excellent wine . Prices are affordable Definitely we will return.

We have visited this restaurant several times. As usual the steak was excellent. However the fish served to Penny was very poor. Over cooked and dry. So, I only recommend this place if you want a steak but do not order fish.

The menu doesn't provide for replacing chips/rice/potato with a vegetable. If you don't want carbo or starch, the management says "take it or leave it. We don't swop carb for protein. Pay extra for a veg if you don't want starch". The steak was great, but the attitude was dismal. No discount for not taking any starch... totally inflexible and... More

They get the BEST biggest freshest mussels twice a week - but book your portion. Outside is protected and not windy- inside less beautiful but with the quality of food- no train smash.

Delicious pear/blue cheese salad to start, enormous portion big enough for 2. House speciality belly of pork with teriyaki sauce and apples was very tender and looked very appetising on the plate. Warm, quick,friendly service helped it add up to a vey pleasant evening out at a reasonable sum. We'd go again Garden area is most attractive bit.

We ate last night at EAT with friends and it was a delightful evening from beginning. There was a private function making quite a lot of noise that seemed to upset couples but the five of us were enjoying each other's company with the enjoyment of others. From the beginning everything was excellent. The service was outstanding and caring, going... More

5 of us visited this restaurant just before Christmas for dinner one evening after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. We all ordered something different and all really enjoyed our food. I had the sesame encrusted tuna which was tasty but slightly overcooked and dry, perhaps a sauce would solve that problem, otherwise we had a good night and... More

We received a warm welcome and the staff were very attentive. The steaks were perfect and the line fish was fresh and delicious. Not crowded and enjoyed a pleasant and relaxed evening. Would certainly return!

Thank mpbaden
