“Reasonable food, great staff”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

The food was good, without being great. The beer was good and the staff were friendly and attentive. There are lovely views from the restaurant windows onto the harbour. At one point there was an extremely noisy group playing pool who shouted at each other constantly, which was irritating, but that was a one-off. They were patrons too, and there's not much the managers can do. The free wifi was useful, although there was only a single powerpoint in the entire public area.

“Ideal place to go”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Nice place to go for a drink on your own or for a snack or meal with the family.
I found the place inviting and the food served on my visits was delightful.
Staff were very helpful and chatty which is great.
I think in high season you will struggle to get a seat especially outside but do try and you will not be disappointed.

“Helpful bar staff and decent food”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

The barman was able to recommend a beer (Trelawny) to go with my lunchtime meal choice of Chicken New Yorker (butterflied chicken, bacon, BBQ sauce, chips and salad). And how can you go wrong in a place where you not only have a great view of a peaceful harbour but one of the other customers comes onto the terrace with a baby reindeer on a lead? What a place!

“A great view over which to enjoy lunch”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

The terrace overlooking the harbour is easily one of the best places to be on a sunny day, especially with a glass of beer in front of you. The staff, if not exactly the most efficent, were certainly friendly and we can vouch for the crab sandwiches: delicious. All in all, a pretty good way to spend an hour or two.
