It is a nice enough pub restaurant but as no one else was eating there (it was early evening), it didn`t have much atmosphere. The fish of the day, cod, was fried, good size . My fish pie was quite bland.

The night in question was a sunday night which are generally quiet . I gave the couple a 50ml measure of Baileys in a short whisky glass. They had had a few drinks already so obviously were mistaken. They are not welcome back.

Disappointed with service and food. Waited 45 mins for children to get their ice cream desserts after asking several times why it was taking so long. Won't go back there. Food was bland and found remnants of cling film in it.
