I really enjoyed my meal in The Helm and so did all in our party. I will definitely be back. The food was full of flavour and the service was wonderful. Also as we were finishing up there was a wonderful 3 piece band player and they were neither too loud or too low. It was the perfect level and created a lovely atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience at The Helm and I look forward to returning again soon.

This place is a gem. Some of the best seafood I've ever tasted in a nice venue with a busy, bustling atmosphere and good service.

We stumbled across this place originally planning to just stop for a pint looking for something to do...deciding we were peckish but didnt know what we wanted Neville the barman offered to do us a bunch of random finger food, it was nothing special but it was priced right & hit the spot!
Went out for the afternoon then decided to go back to the pub with its welcoming atmosphere to chill for the afternoon. The friendly staff & welcoming atmosphere led us to end up even staying there with a cheeky discount from Vinny! The next night we got talked into staying again, everyone was just too friendly, the chef even cooked up some mackerel for us that we caught ourselves. The food was tasty, service amazing, we didnt want to leave & will 100% be returning one day :)

Service was great and location is lovely, however the food was a bit average. Crabcakes ordered seemed to be mostly mashed potatoes and very little actual crab.

The food was 5 star and there was no delay in service. The area where the food was served but they, the staff, were able to accommodate everyone that walked in their doors.
