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

Lovely setting, excellent service & amazing food. Everyone there should be proud of what they do. It's just a pity we're from Birmingham so won't be able... 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

Clearly out of season and mid week does not lead to fresh fish based on the evidence presented. The serving of brown shrimps hot is different but not welcome but as against that the steak was excellent and cooked as requested and others thought well of the pork. As I said a curates egg with willing but amateur service standards.Rated... More

Been too long since I last visited but nothing has changed. Simply superb food which for me was faultless. Good service but as there was just us - table of 4 and another couple who left about 2 hours before us I would expect good service. This place serves fantastic food but is stuck in a time warp with very... More
