“Pub Food at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

Visited over the 2014 TT fortnight, and ate two nights running, personally I had the Chilli Con Carne which was so good I had same next evening. Freshly prepared, wonderfully presented and extreemly satisfying at a very reasonable cost. My fellow diners had Steak Pie, Curry, and Baked Potatoes on our visits. ( There was a "TT Menu" for the period, which was most impressive).
Good selection of beers, ales & wine. Excellent service under very busy circumstances. Clean and comfortable, with plenty of outside seating. Excellent panorama of Douglas. I've given it 4/5 rating, but if its pub food in a relaxed atmosphere you seek, then maybe I would give it 5/5.

We eat here last week, the menu is huge and home cooked.
The curry of the day was very good, reasonable priced.
Would recommend

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Excellent menu (and children's menu), and well stocked bar. Very popular place, so, as others have noted, it can be a bit of a wait once you've ordered, but it's well worth the wait. Whenever you propose to go, it would be a good idea to make a reservation; it does get busy.

“Crowded..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

The staff were very good and efficient - but they were innundated by the number of people waiting for the ferry to Heysham. We were lucky to find a seat - however - there were several 'students ?' sat at tables without a drink or food.. using it to rest their 'tablet'...!! So much for (anti) 'social' media...
The drinks were good, and the place had a pleasant atmosphere - but could do with a bit of a facelift. That said - I would still use it again..
