The service, friendliness and attention to detail of this delightful restaurant is second to none. We chose the Seafood Board, which was full of delicacies, including smoked mackerel paste, and salmon from the adjacent smokehouse. The presentation of the seafood fare was mouth-watering. We asked for smaller-than-normal portions, which was accommodated. Service with a smile from both the barman and the lovely waitress. We recommend this establishment most highly.

Well known in the area with an excellent reputation for food. Good selection of snacks and mains all from local suppliers. Beautifully presented, delicious food. Can get extremely busy so best to book at busy periods. Only down side, it took ages for the table to be cleared from the previous occupants even though we were sitting with our fresh drinks. It was only cleared when our food arrived

Perfect lunch in misty conditions. The seafood platter was very good as was the crab soup. The puddings were great -loved the lemon posset. Very helpful staff we have no hesitation in recommending this pub.

After reading reviews on trip advisor, I decided to call in for some food.
I had the Toasted Ham and Cheeses sandwich, the bread was dry and tasteless, as if no butter had been used on the bread, the cheese had a very plastic taste to it and overpowered the ham, the chips that arrived as a side order tasted like old potatoes that were on the turn. The best part of the whole meal was the bowl of crisps that arrived with the sandwich.

Hello thefoodcritic04

Very sorry but with all due respect I can't really read into this review seriously as I'm not convinced a food critic as you call yourself would order a ham and cheese toastie??!! The bread is toasted not dry and it's fresh everyday.
The potatoes would struggle to be on the turn as again fresh deliveries daily are checked meticulously. I guess we just weren't the place for you. I happily take constructive issues and deal with them.

Regards
David
