We had the mozzarella chip starter to share which had a lovely zing of spice and well presented. Cajun salmon and gammon mains which were both spot on. Shared a sticky toffee pudding for dessert which was magic. Well done guys.More

You have asked me a question about a review I put on line regarding the ship restaurant. I don’t understand as per my review I am a customer that visited for a meal. I think you need to redirect you criticisms elsewhere!
