Having lived in the area for over 30 years, but always been put off by the look of the place I was interested to see it has had a complete renovation and emphasises daily fresh fish. It now looks like a modern, welcoming eatery, so decided to give it a try one evening.
It was what it looked like - a modern, welcoming eatery, with a very pleasant split-level restaurant and a separate bar.
It has a fairly short, but interesting menu - mainly fish, although there were dishes for non-fish eaters, plus a specials board. (Note to restaurant - we were not told by the waitresses what the specials were and there was no sign of a board in the lower part of the restaurant where we were, I had to go into the bar to find it. Suggest either we're told what they are or you have a table-top blackboard which can be brought with the menu.)
We both had scallops to start - excellent! Sweet, juicy and nicely presented. The mains were whole plaice from the specials board and moules from the menu. The plaice was superb, thick & juicy served with the usual mange-tout, carrots & broccoli plus crispy new potatoes which were all above the ordinary by being drizzled herb dressing. The moules were declared 'delicious', so after creme brulee & coffee, two extremely satisfied diners left, musing on when they could next eat there.
We went on a Tuesday evening which was reasonably quiet but I imagine it gets really busy at weekends so booking would be a good idea, certainly in the tourist season. If I'm really nit-picking then the service did seem a tad slow, even though each meal is cooked to order, but it won't put us off going back.
