Large servings, fresh seafood .. wait staff seemed not prepared or trained in the arrival process, but we're attentive from then on. Value for money.

Ate here with my wife last night for the first time-amazing! We were advised the shellfish platter for 2 was "substantial" - seafood dishes in the UK are usually overpriced with small portions, at £55 it was extremely reasonable, we struggled to finish it. Probably...More

Tables a little too close together. White wine not chilled shame when you pay £22 a bottle. Service was good. Food ok maybe a little overpriced. Everything was nice just didn't quite hit the mark when you pay over £100 for two.
