Great restaurant with food cooked to perfection. Tapas style food to share. "Prawn on the Lawn" dish was just lovely. This restaurant is quite small and tables close together so be ready to be a little cosy.

Great good quality local produce. Lovely food, a personal favourite of oysters and crab. Lovely warm welcome from staff. Wish I’d had tried the seared tuna but always next time!

We have been here before and would never hesitate to return as the food is always fabulous. Out of season is a great time to visit as it is quieter (and therefore easier to get a booking) although it does mean that certain things may...More

The food here was amazing. We went to Rick Stein's bistro the very next night and were disappointed because these guys set such a good standard. Smaller place, seating a bit cosy... but good fun.
