The mussels I had were amazing, without a doubt their food is spot on. On the other hand the staff seemed very abrupt and almost as if like we’d spoilt their day by turning up. After a week in Scotland this was our last place...More

Managed to get a table booked, and not disappointed with the food or service. My wife is celiac, but the staff were fantastic in checking what was available from the menu, and even created a desert just for her, thank you
