We recently had an evening meal at the Bluebird, and can't fault the food. We all had fish of some sort, and thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. The service was faultless, and nothing was too much trouble. Sadly as it was early on a Tuesday night...More

I agree with DNBCASE and Skyjilly, the food is great but it is let down by the dated decor. I feel sorry for DNBCASE's wife having to eat muscles!! I had Crab Thermidor, which was nice, but tasted previously frozen. Service is always great but...More
