We went there for our wedding anniversary - one had had a seafood basket and the other the hot and cold seafood for one. Both dishes were delicious and there was plenty to eat.

A surprising find as the interior is not too smart. However the food is excellent with simple ingredients cooked very well. Excellent fish and chips - not too much batter on the fish, not greasey, crisp chips. Good sticky toffee pudding. Efficient and friendly service. Definitely recommend

Went on a Monday so it was quiet. Service was excellent. Had the oysters kilpatrick which were fresh and served on a bed of salad instead of rock salt, which really worked for me. Caesar salad was generous in size and served in an edible bowl which was a nice touch. Can recommend.

We came to this restaurant about 8.30pm on a weekday when the restaurant was fairly empty. We ordered a three course meal which was divine. All the food was cooked fresh to order and service was amazing. Highly recommended :)
