This is some of the best fish and chips I've had. Located right on Main Street. Really cool restaurant but it's very busy.

Place looked nice and prices were higher than average. But the food was awful. I ordered ceasar salad, but the chicken was so bad that I couldn't eat all of it. For my surprise, salad also included chips, they tasted very bad too. Wine was ok.

Great service went there for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The surrounds are great and will certainly go back. The decor is worth seeing.

Only my second time being here but it was amazing, it was busy but the service was very good. Think a waitress called Marta looked after us. She was lovely and very friendly. I got the steak sandwich which was to die for and my friend got the brunch which he said was awesome! Will definitely be coming back again!

One all day breakfast had stone cold mushrooms and rashers, the beef pie had cold potatoes and the stir fry beef had a handful of stale prawn crackers on it. For what took an hour and... More

nice restaurant and staff are fine but could be a bit friendlier. We had lovely sandwiches and were presented very nicely as they look very well on the plate
