My parents, teenaged son and I have Sunday lunch before taking the Featherbed ferry. Siwe was a superb server, the oysters were fresh and delicious, the calamari tender and perfect and the Creme brûlée decadent. A perfect meal.

Best calamari heads we've tasted, supported by delicious chilli poppers and great service by Nollie. Seriously worth a visit.
