“Good meal - good menu, helpful staff, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

A group of 6 of us had an excellent evening meal here. There was no difficulty in catering for a vegetarian (clearly marked in the menu) and a gluten-free diet - waitress provided list of what could be provided gluten free. Meals were delivered reasonably quickly and were well presented, on really warm plates. Everyone seemed happy with their starters, main course and sweets. Overall good wholesome food, well prepared, well cooked and presented. Nothing special, but more than acceptable. More than happy to go back again.

“Friendly and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

The location of the riggers restaurant , by the water and within the RNLI college, makes it worth a visit and it is friendly and good value without being pretentious.
Not haute cuisine, or fancy food, but good cooking and a great venue. Try it.

“Excellent Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

We had a table with views across the harbour with white linen tablecloth and lovely china and cutlery. The meal we had was excellent, good value for money and was presented like a five star restaurant would do. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and the added bonus is that for every £1 we spend some went to the RNLI. This is the third time we have been here and rave about it to everyone. Well done to the staff and Chefs.

“this used to be a very good experiance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Been going their most years for the last 10 on trips down to the far South. The restaurant used to be self service with a great casual atmosphere.They have tried to go upmarket and lost the point. some of the best mussels I have eaten this time, but the rest was average with indifferent waiting apart from one waiter. fantastic view and setting
