Having read all the excellent reviews of this establishment and inclined to possibly stay for a short break we decided to have lunch here in late October. I was particularly looking forward to choosing some fresh fish to eat. Unfortunately the crab sandwich was very disappointing, the bread dry and the presentation unappetising.
There was only one other table taken in the dining room and hence no atmosphere.
The service was unprofessional and at one point the waitress asked if I had finished when it was clear that I hadn't ! When I requested some additional salad dressing I was presented with a vinegar bottle which appeared not to have been washed out or cleaned for some considerable time. The café latte was served in an inappropriate cheap looking mug . A very disappointing experience all in all.
