Great place for fish & chips. It's fresh and tasty. So are the oysters. Chicken wings are a little bland. Servings are reasonable generous. Sit outdoors and have your meals alfresco. You won't regret it! We spotted dolphins swimming nearby while we're having lunch overlooking the marina. Amazing view. Just remember to book if you want choice seatings. Or come... More

Good food, good service, fine wine and a good view of the marina. Great spot for a sunny day eating on the deck.

What a lovely area to sit and watch the world go by, and the food is pretty good too! Just so happened the dolphins came to play directly in front of the restaurant. Feeling happy!

Sunday lunch overlooking a marina on a sunny warm day. I've been here several times now and I do enjoy my experience here. Service is warm and friendly. Ordered the squid salad and my better half the pork salad. A short time later the food is at your table! Now what can I say, this would be the best squid... More

The Deck is a lovely restaurant, beautiful outlook of the marina. We had lunch here after our whale watching tour. Hubby had a fish burger and I had a beef burger. Very tasty burgers and an enjoyable outing.

Lovely tasty food and friendly staff. The environment absolutely relaxing. Sadly the timing of the food coming out to the tables was a serious disappointment. Chef management poor as 6 of us got our meals and everyone else waited another 45min. This function was booked quite in advance, suggestion was that they are understaffed and allegedly we moved tables! (Huh?... More

Today was the first sunny and warm day of this spring so maybe more people turned up for lunch than was expected. One staff member behind the bar and one on the floor couldn't really cope. Tried to order at the bar and was told it was table service. Sat at my table for nearly thirty minutes and no one... More

We visited here on Monday. Food was delicious & it was a very pretty outdoor setting. Some of the group enjoyed the fish & chips, prawn cassoulet & Ploughmans lunch. All delicious & well presented.
