Been here a few times. Always seems busy. Hour wait for food both times. Second time was a bank holiday so we can sort of understand. It is good food though.

Easter Bank holiday Sunday, lovely weather. Sat outside watching the amazing sunset. Big bowl of lovely plump mussels cooked with coder and samphire, served with crusty bread. Delicious. Washed down with pints of local cider. Bliss.
