Food was good but not outstanding. Staff are lovely. However the food is starting to look very pricey, especially for bar meals.

Stayed here last night for partner's birthday dinner. Lovely, large, clean bedroom, friendly staff &, most importantly, fresh seafood to die for! Not a single bum note in the whole experience.
