Lovely place , great staff In the Bay so a good stop off place but the food was good but expensive. Two little steam buns were I think £3.50. Bill for 8 to snack was £80

Managed to get in here early in the evening and was served straight away. Really good menu for food and drinks. All served quite quickly with attentive staff. Not tried all the restaurants in the area but they'll have to be pretty good to beat this one.

My partner and I love a good cocktail, Martinis, Manhattans and whiskey sours especially. The bar manager is simply the best cocktail/drinks maker we've had the pleasure of meeting.
