“Beyond Average ”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Went there last minute on a Saturday night with my boyfriend - I had the 2 course set menu which was good value (about £13 for bruschetta & steak with was well cooked). My boyfriend however had the seafood risotto - AVOID at all costs! Looked, smelt & tasted like uncle Ben's rice - rice was hard & not cooked & so liquid to hold it together. When we said we weren't going to pay for it the waitress grabbed the bowl off the table & marched off before banging around in the kitchen. Worst risotto ever seen!! Would not go back.

“Rip off!!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

I ordered breaded scampi, they brought a dish with around 7 small pieces. There was no peas, chips or anything else. The way they spread it out on the plate looked comical. This cost £15!!!! Chips were extra, small and soggy. The reply to my complaint was that they will "review the menu". My protest lead to a laughable £3 deduction from a £50 bill for two without alcohol. The food in all wasnt great, the quality was mediocre at best but the price in relation was absurd. A complete rip off.

Reviewed December 10, 2013

We dropped in here for lunch on saturday as we were tempted in by the quirky tiny size of the place and its tempting lunch boards.
the staff are nice,
We both had crab chowder to start and then I had home made fish pie and my wife had the seafood resotto.
the portiions were huge and the food was lovely.
Will visit again

“Really delightful!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Fresh beautiful fish and fab service! Would recommend - yum :).

A member of my party did feel the older lady serving was intimidating and stared as he ate - I didn't notice though!

“Worth a visit for the lobster”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We had Saturday evening in the restaurant it
is just like sitting in a little cottage sitting room
very small but pleasant.
The staff are relaxed and pleasant you dont have
to wait for long for anything in fact you could feel
slightly rushed but I am sure if this was mentioned they
would take the courses a little slower.
The starter I had of crab coctail was slightly lacking the
crab but very tasty. My partner had king prawns which were
slightly lacking the King ! but nice enough.
The main is what we go for the lobster thermidor so tasty and
quite a large size.
The bill was quite a lot but we said next time we would give the
starters a miss as our honest thoughts are they are overpriced
for what you get.
Do not be put off though the mains are great.
