“Friendly and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

We went met up with friends after being recommended to try this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. A very friendly welcome and order taken at our leisure. The meals came well presented and perfectly cooked - we will defiantly return in the future

“Lovely food, sadly lacking in atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

We visited here a few months ago. To be honest, despite living in the area for many years had driven past and never really noticed it.

Does seem to have funny opening times and is often closed or looks closed when driving past. Don't open on a Sunday lunchtime apparently which seems strange ?

Our meal here was absolutely delicious and the staff were very friendly and welcoming although the restaurant was quite empty and lacked a bit of atmosphere.

Very stylishly decorated inside and I would say would make a perfect venue for a wedding or special gathering. (Not sure if they do wedding parties so obviously check first).

Will definitely be visiting again soon.

8/10

“Relaxed Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We spent a very nice evening here with over 20 friends. We pre booked or food and organised a pre dinner drink on arrival. All was delt with by very polite friendly staff. Once seated our starter, main, and pudding were served very quickly and efficiently . We used the standard menu , all was very tasty and at a reasonable price. We had a small room off the main area which made the evening a little more special.

“If You Like FISH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

If you like FISH then this is the place for you. The food is amazing, the service is wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. TRY IT you won't be disappointed. We had skate absolutely wonderful, monkfish and prawns was fabulous. Try their own smoked salmon starter - amazing.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

We visited on a Saturday evening. When we first arrived the restaurant was eerily quiet due to the absence of any music. This disappeared as more diners arrived - I do think that something quietly playing in the background would be nice.
The staff were very friendly and the menu was brilliant. Everything looked so nice it was difficult to choose from. The food was tasty and well worth the money.
