Visited on Saturday night, surprisingly it was really quiet and we were the only people in there. This did not detract from the quality of the food which was excellent.
The prices are above the average pub restaurant but this is fine dining and the prices reflect the quality of the food.
If you want to dine somewhere for a special occasion where the food is above average this is the place to go.

Came here on a recommendation from a friend.... Aren't we glad we did!

From the moment we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly waitress who provided fantastic service all evening. The food was second to none, we stuck with the seafood as the restaurant source this fresh locally. Beautifully cooked, well presented and tasted phenomenal. Some of the best seafood we've eaten.

This really is a hidden gem of a restaurant, and a real shame that it was so quiet. Well worth a visit if you get the opportunity. It's easily accessible off the A59, plenty of parking and worth every penny.

We went last night after reading other TripAdvisor reviews. My husband and I are holidaying in the UK and often refer to this site to find good places to eat. We were very surprised the restaurant is not more popular, as the food, service and ambiance were all great. Our food was fresh, perfectly cooked and creatively presented. We chose from the midweek special menu, 2 courses for £9.95, but they also have an a la carte menu which is reasonably priced, and not just seafood as the name may suggest. We intend eating here again before we leave.
