Second visit to Dores Inn (yesterday we had their delicious soup). Today pan-fried sea trout on a range of vegetables including samphire, asparagus and fennel. It was excellent, and reasonable priced given the quality. Friendly staff and good service.

On a recent visit to the above restaurant we experienced a pleasant meal in great surroundings. However, one particular waitress spoiled our visit by being down right rude and unwelcoming to the point of if I returned it would be pointed out to the management.
