“Wouldn't go back.”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We mistakenly went to this restaurant having thought we saw paella on the menu. I ordered a lobster sautéed in butter. The portion was more like a large shrimp or else I am not familiar with lobster "sizing" at least for what they charged for this dish. Rather than being "sautéed" in butter, the lobster was more correctly submerged in butter. Very ordinary.

“Nice bathrooms”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

I had a pint, using that as an excuse to use the bathroom. The place is huge! Nice selection of poison at the bar. Big place with plenty of seats, and can sit outside. I would go back. The bar scene on BH is crazy, so make sure you have this in the loop.

“Great people watching”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We ate outside on the patio as it was a pleasant evening and you are right in the middle of everything. The patio seating is good for people watching on the street! The food was good, however, my husbands order was incorrect when they brought it out. The wait staff was friendly and prompt. Although we did not go in, they have a decent looking bar on the side of the patio that seemed to be a destination for small groups. Overall a decent restaurant.

“Huge fish on the fish and chips!🐟”
Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

We went with another couple and each couple ordered a fish and chips dinner and a lamb burger. We could have simple ordered and split the two fish and chips. Three large pieces of haddock on each, with plenty of fries and a nice mustardy coleslaw. Lamb burgers were cooked to order and the cucumber sauce was a nice accompaniment. Service was okay...we were there on a Monday night in September... The place was almost empty and we didn't seem to be a priority for the waitstaff. But very good overall

“Tasty food, so so atmosphere”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We were seated quickly. The restaurant seemed a bit empty. Despite that, our seats were close to the bathroom which was not ideal. Our food was good and service was decent.
