Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Genuinely surprised. Was not expecting this place to be as good as it was. Food and wine were excellent and the price was incredibly reasonable. Service was great. Such a shame it's so quiet.

This is the 3rd time we've been here recently & I can't recommend it highly enough. The squid starter is lovely with a sweet chilli dip. I & my friend had the seabass fillet as a main course which I chose to have on a...bed of creamed mashed potato with a beautiful beurre blanc sauce. It also came with a small selection of vegetables including dauphinoise potatoes. My friend had the accompaniments which were listed on the menu. Our partners both had the poussin which they said was fabulous. We didn't have room for dessert unfortunately, but finished off with coffee. Our waitress Samantha couldn't do enough for us. She explained that we could switch around the accompaniments & sauces on the menu to suit us. She was also very knowledgeable about how the sauces & dishes had been cooked. Do not overlook this lovely restaurant.More

What can I say This restaurant tried to say we had one of our meals when we didn't then tried to charge us for this , The review James has put is accurate .We asked for the manager to come speak and he wouldn't come....Him saying they didn't pay was utter rubbish .You wouldn't let them leave if they didn't pay .They paid for the meals they had not the duplicated ones you said that they had .I contacted the owner and was utterly shocked by his response saying that people like that should stick to takeaways and are not worthy of his restaurant.How dare he ! He had the opportunity to put this right but he chose to be obnoxious and rude .Looking through previous reviews he has said very similar things to customers who have commented.I suggested to anyone thinking of eating here to NOT bother and get a TAKEAWAY it will be a lot nicer XMore

You do not go to a restaurant and do a run after you had your meal. Come.pay your bell first and then write a review. Even other customers who are in the buildung think you are embarrasing.

Had geared myself up for a special evening but it was disappointing. The place was practically empty on what could have been a busy night. Food was nice although the bread was tough and there were hardly any wines available and items not on the...menu. Also, the service fell far short of meeting customer expectations of what could be perceived as a slightly more upmarket dining experience/restaurant. Unlikely to return.More

The only good thing was the waitress who was honest about the dishes. No atmosphere as only ones in at 7pm on a Friday To give the title of a seafood restaurant is very ambitious The bread was hard , no cutlery to crack the...crab , not much flavour on the cold platter of seafood and would have expected more variety , didn’t feel fresh We had different main courses and we all tried each others , duck was well over cooked and tasteless , Mussels were tasteless and not a big portion for a main It’s a shame as I used to go to this restaurant a lot a few ago and loved it so not sure what has happened I know there is a of competition nearby Unfortunately I won’t be returningMore

Same person who wrote the 1 st review wrote the second 1. I do not think you have been to our restaurant. So do not write bad things about restaurants that you have not been.

I took my parent out for a meal last night and I genuinely hate leaving a bad review but in all honestly this was the worst meal I've had in a very long time. Starting with a plus the service was good, the waitress was...lovely but the food was abysmal. Seafood platter was tasteless and I was scared eating it that I was going to end up ill ( to be clear I was not). The Duck very was overcooked and tasteless, Veg horrendously undercooked and tasteless. I would be very surprised if this place is still open by summer.More
