Popped in without a booking early evening. Was greeted well staff friendly. Had the specials which were very nice.The steaks were tender and juicy and the rest had the fish and chips which they enjoyed. Lovely restaurant which got busy whilst we were there. Seems very popular with the locals which says a lot. Nice early evening visit.

Went here because I fancied seafood and my partner doesn't like it but likes steak. Inside is small but nice and there's an upstairs with more tables. There's fresh fish on ice on display so you know what your eating. I ordered moules marinière and my partner had the rump steak. Both were delicious and the steak was cooked perfectly.... More

Had a nice family meal for 6 of us the other night. The place is very nice, we have been coming for a long time now. The decor is all done in solid wood, great character, not a generic chain design made of chipboard. Food was great – I had prawns with chorizo to start which was excellent. For main... More

We have been coming to this little hidden gem for 25 years and it remains consistently outstanding. You are always greeted by a smiling face, usually the very attentive and always welcoming Clint. The food is amazing and I can highly recommend the mussels as a starter, you need plenty of bread to mop up all the delicious sauce they... More
