Ate here 2 days ago, fabulous food, we were reccommmended the Short Rib by Tio the manager, it was excellent, the meat was so tender it fell apart, I would now recommend it to others as a must try lol. Mellow red wine and an...amazing chocolate mousse for dessert, my friend had cheesecake which was also beautiful. Friendly staff who couldn’t do enough for you, warm cosy welcoming atmosphere on a rainy cold day. We finished with latte coffees. Such a Reasonable price for such fabulous food and excellent service. will be back again and again 😊More

I have been to this pub nothing fancy . We ordered we received our food. Truly ridiculous. The price of the food. 22 EUR for a prawns saute dish With gnocchi. I think that's just over the top for a lunch menu.

Staff not wearing masks. Some people were walking around with no masks. Dreadfull place to be. Very disappointed.

Delighted to have been here during the lobster festival, amazing live music and great atmosphere. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly, especially our server Chloe. Can’t wait to visit again !

Staff are so rude. Waited 10 minutes for someone to come out for us to ask about a table for drinks. Very rudely and sarcastically told they’d no tables. This was a Friday night after 8pm and they’d free tables out the front. Constant promotion...of social media about drinks, food etc. Which all looks great, but maybe rethink your front of house staff! Not everyone is suited for hospitality! Also, not the first occasion I might add…More

We waited 10 minutes to be admitted from the street and then waited over an hour for our food. The manager managed to make a bad situation worse. Luckily we have the option of never returning again.

we were a table of 4 with a table pre-booked and we were all looking forward to a very pleasant early evening dinner and catch up so we decided to visit the restaurant at 6.30 mid -week when it would not be too busy ....In fact we were one of only 4 or 5 tables occupied at that time... sadly the restaurant failed miserably. After ordering drinks .. which took about 15 minutes to arrive,, starters were ordered.. pate arrived with an abundance of burnt toasted bread slithers.. then we waited,, and waited and waited for our main courses to arrive. 50 mins passed and there tables were occupied and served.. we asked about our main course with little satisfaction - finally the lady manager appeared and offered a few 'sorry about that' comments and said the order got buried under other orders.... this must be the only restaurant that does not suspend orders in sequence.....are they all just thrown onto a flat surface and it is pot luck who is served and who is forgotten . When the main courses arrived they they sadly achieved the same standard as we had already experienced... a disgrace.. in fact the burger was the worst that my wife had ever tasted. whatever flavours might have existed in the rubber prawns was overwhelmed by the excess of spices. We thank the manger for removing a number of items from the bill but I prefer to avoid such an experience againMore
