Good food at a reasonable price. Make reservations because they do get full. Husband had the salmon special found it very tasty. I had the steak and ale pie and it was very good. Their desserts were excellent as well.

Excellent food and service. A nice variety of choices on the menu, enough to tempt you back, but not too many to be overwhelming. Situated in the square of a small quiet fishing village.

Had dinner here on 2 nights (Friday and Sunday), all of the dishes were fresh, tasty and plentiful. Service was excellent. Can reccommend the steak pie - the best I have ever had, unbelievably rich gravy. The taster dessert was ideal, just the right amount...More

On holiday but wish we lived closer as we would be regulars! Small, cosy restaurant with friendly service. Ate off the a la carte menu, smoked salmon parcels really tasty, and the sea bass was very fresh and worked really well with the pea risotto....More
