We had booked a Seafood Platter for two via Groupon & were pleased we had. The staff, contrary to a recent review, were friendly & helpful. The food was well presented &, best of all, was tasty.

Hi. Just to let you know that we had our Groupon seafood platter with Prosecco this week and i am pleased to say that an alcohol licence is in place. We were both given a 200ml bottle of Prosecco to accompany the platter.A table had been reserved in the window and the process could not have been simpler. Excellent food,drink, service and value. J.C.

Pleased to hear you had a nice time. 🙂
