“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We ate here last night having had it recommended by the owner of the b&b we are staying in. The service was first class and the food was absolutely delicious. I had something off the specials board and my husband had the baked cod with herb risotto. We couldnt fault it. Desert was delicious too.

“Fantastically fast service and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

We have visited this restaurant before using a Groupon offer and we were very happy. This time it was without the offer and still we received excellent service and the quality of the food was just as good if not better. We put the staff under a bit of pressure as our meal was prior to the theatre and we didn't have a great deal of time. No problem at all and we got to see the show al in good time. Well done again Chapmans for consistency of food and friendly staff

Tasty, well presented food at reasonable prices. Service was friendly & unrushed. Definitely not fast food:-)! Will definitely return.

We had our wedding anniversary lunch.. The food was very good and most important very fresh! The oysters amazing! The staff very friendly with my 2 old years baby, they provided strait away coloured pencils and a colour book to keep her busy. And the dessert simply wow! Well done!
