“Delicious food”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

A very popular pub/restaurant that my boyfriend and I just happened to stumble into. The inside was like a local pub with very interesting local history around the place. However, the food was not your usual pub grub, very expensive but very tasty and beautifully made. Gets very busy and you can't book so expect to have to wait and get there early!!

“Great food”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We were unable to get a table in the restaurant but ate in the bar as it has the same menu. The food was great, so much so we ate there twice over the long weekend! We tried the whitebait, prawns, mussels and the steak and it was all very good. Would highly recommend if you are staying in the area.

Food was average for a pub restaurant but frankly could have done without the choice of piped music .

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Arrived without a reservation on a Saturday evening and the place was very busy but they served us an oyster platter on the bar to keep us going until a table became free. Seafood was delicious. Atmosphere very friendly.

“Got it wrong - put it right”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Really poor experience of service (from the kitchen and the bar, not the waitress) The food, when it came after one and a quarter hours, was fine, but the wait took the edge off our experience.
The restaurant menu offered only bottles and half bottles of wine so I asked if wine by the glass was available from the bar and ordered a glass of Malbec. The waitress returned to say they didn't have it. so I ordered a half bottle Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. The waiter appeared with a Cotes du Rhone. I went back to the bar menu and after being informed that several choices were not available, asked for a Merlot. The waitress returned with ....a Malbec!!
In the meantime we had to ask several times for a bread roll, watching them being served to adjoining tables and then whisked away again.
To their credit, the restaurant recognised that the service was not acceptable and did not charge us for the food - hence the 3 rating that would otherwise be a 1.
