“Fantastic meal and service”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

A small restaurant with ocean views in walking distance from the Fairhaven B&B was an excellent suggestion by our hosts. We enjoyed per dinner drinks in the bar, then sat down to a busy restaurant. Meals were delivered very promptly with extremely generous portions for the mains. Definitely recommend to others.

“Nice Restaurant Well Situated on Sea Front ......”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Firstly this is my sole experience and 100% genuine.
I have had two evening meals here and they were both of a good standard.
I particularly enjoyed the 10z steak with the wine and mushroom sauce it was really very nice ...
I also had the battered fish and chips were also very good.
All in all a nice restaurant and it was rather busy on both evenings giving it a good atmosphere.
If you are looking for a meal in this location I recommend this restaurant.
Enjoy!

“Great beer and relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

We didn't eat during our visit but the restaurant looked good. We tried out several local beers (which was the reason we went) and were not disappointed. Several were run off on our visit was disappointing (but we didn't suffer!). An extensive range of real ales and lagers - if you like whisky - they have a few bottles of that also. We stayed in the bar area which was cosy and accommodating. The guy behind the bar knew his stuff and was very friendly. Definitely worth a visit if you are in town.

Thank you for your visit and your kind feedback. We did reduce the number of ales while we were renovating the bar (all done now and looking great!). We have over 100 single malts and just arrived - new limited edition Highland Park whisky from our trip to Orkney!
