We went for lunch midweek. Food excellent. Place quite nice. Maybe a little tired looking. If you book, eating upstairs is nicer than down especially if you get a table in the window. Price wise it isn't cheap. £80 for two courses and a bottle of wine! I would return though. It's a pity they couldn't get bigger premises as it is very cramped inside. The food makes up for this though. Service also excellent.

Popped in for Saturday lunch, first time in a while. Under new ownership since some time we gathered, and certainly things were looking up. Busy yet room for 2 downstairs in the bar room at this time, we were tended to by the boss, who was doing her utmost to keep everyone happy. We had two main courses and drinks only. The mains were Dover sole grilled from the menu and the day's special which was a whole plaice. Both were really well cooked and presented and were of generous proportions. One side of new potatoes was enough for two as well.
Well worth a visit on this evidence, seems to be that the service is getting the same attention as the food always has.

Undeterred by some poor Tripadvisors reviews we decided to go for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. Food, wine and service were outstanding and whilst the wallpaper has seen better days the overall ambience was appropriate. We will go back.

We first visited this excellent fish restaurant around 20 years ago and so were looking forward to our return. The restaurant has new owners who took over just a few weeks ago.

We weren't disappointed, the range and quality of fish dishes was amazing and the staffs' professional and friendly approach just made the meal a perfect experience. To Sarah and all the guys at the D&M every good wish for the future and we will visit you again when next in the area
