“Friendly place with beautiful view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Visited here twice whilst on holiday for food - lovely place to eat, the food was served quickly and on a sunny day it's a gorgeous place to sit outside and relax and enjoy the sea view. My dog was made extremely welcome also.

“Good home cooked food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Good home cooked food but not much selection on the menu, majority of menu comprised of fish mainly shellfish which is what you would expect in a fishing village. But limited for those who do not like seafood. Good portion size and children's menu selection very good and big enough portions for my pregnant wife who can't eat larger portions. Busy as usual and no issues. Worth it if looking for something on a sunny and warm day to sit outside and watch the boats.

“Excellent food as usual”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Excellent food as usual and friendly helpful staff. A few items had been crossed off the menu though which was a bit of a disappointment. Still good choice available though

“Too Busy for its Own Good ?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

A great setting - overlooking the yachts moored in the estuary.
We ate on a very busy Friday evening, and unfortunately, our friend had to send his lamb dish back as it appeared to be undercooked. When it returned, it was not much better , and he left most of it. No offer of compensation was made.

“Dogs allowed beside the food !!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Visited this hotel for food on a Saturday afternoon. Ordered food from friendly staff but when the food arrived was horrified to see that they allowed other guests with dogs into the bar where food was being served. Will not be back as this is so unhygienic !
