“Best in Town!!!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We spent a sunny Sunday afternoon on the terrace, cold locally brewed beers, mouth-watering treats from their new deli and in the great company of the head chef Ranald.
What we enjoyed most was the personal approach taken by the restaurant which made us all feel like locals there and not like "just another customer". The attention to detail with the food was great, not only in the flavours but presentation too.
Cant wait to go back!

“Best breakfast on the bay”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Went to the Annex on a May morning when the weather was absolutely perfect. Sat outside overlooking the bay, ordered the eggs benedict and thoroughly recommend this choice. Frindly atmosphere, good service and value for money. Have been meaning to go back time and again....

“what???????”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

I rang Tuesday 8th Oct to book a table for two for that evening.We arrived at the restaurant to find it shut!I had left my mobile number when I made the reservation but had received no call or text to indicate anything was wrong.I subsequently sent an email asking for their comments.I received an apology saying they had been closed all winter Monday/Tuesday night and suggesting if I booked again they would provide free starters or desserts.I declined.

“Worth visiting both summer and winter”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is a lovely little restaurant - warm, cosy and intimate inside in winter, and, with stunning views of the harbour and sea if it is warm enough to eat outside under the tree. There is also a sheltered terrace directly outside the restaurant - no views, but very pleasant.
The menu is not extensive, but I have not had a poor meal here. The food is nicely presented and I would recommend this restaurant.
Book to save disappointment.
