Best hosts we have ever had. Young gent and young lady running the place were amazing, so friendly. Had best burger ever (hand made) and fish and chips which was just as good. Definitely on the list when we return, thanks for making it a great evening. The 2 tired people from Kent! :)

Been a while since I i visited but was remembered, beautiful food and every one was really friendly. Service was a bit slow at times but it was busy and mother's days. Otherwise brilliant as always. My brother had rang ahead to pre order prosecco for my mam and it was ready available. Lovely option thank you 😀

My Husband ordered the 16oz Battered Cod and myself the Homemade Beefburger..with homemade chips. Very nice and a great Evening. If we come to Maryport... More
