Third visit in 6 months, waited 40 mins for greasy fish and soggy chips, made excuses for last times as no place can be perfect every time. General standard below expectations, will drive on to Kilkeel in future

Please accept my apologies for your disappointing meal. Who ever cooked your meal obviously didn't drain out the fish before they wrapped it which they would have known to do. No excuse for soggy chips either - sorry. Please don't let this put you off...More
