Well you can't really get much fresher than this place. Friends had recommended it and we weren't disappointed. We sat under the sheltered area and waited because the place does sometimes have to shut for a short time to change oil and then reheat the...More

Good food with good views. Lobster was very well cooked and the location somehow made it taste better.

A lovely idea - perfect location and classy menu. Fast efficient service. Food is a little underwhelming - good lobster - squid a bit tough with thick breadcrumby crust . Recommend as part of your seaside day out!

Fresh juicy lobster! Really crispy, tasty chips! Perfect location on the harbour. Quite expensive at £16, I'm sure it was only £12 for a half lobster when I visited a few years ago?

Nice place. location is good. We had the half lobster, which was OK but I just felt very disappointed. Faaaar too much coleslaw and garlic sauce thing which really over powers the taste of the lobster. I feel a bit ripped off in all honesty.
