Location is great, just a little way from the sea/harbour, shame it has limited outdoor seating, but they cannot do much about that. The food and menu choice is first class, in fact too many choices!! of lovely fish / food, and certainly the food our party enjoyed could not be faulted in any way, from Haggis bites - Sole and to the Lobster all were first class.
As a constructive criticism, to improve the experience even more (and I speak as a former restaurant and bar group owner) some tiny points need to be looked at,
The bar and games room are very dark, and with poor lighting, not great for atmosphere or for people with poor eyesight.
Display Fridges behind the bar were not illuminated, or well displayed, so hard to see anything or make a choice.
No light at all in the cubical of the gents, so when the door closes you are totally in the dark!!
Far too many toilet blocks in the urinals, one in each is more than enough as the smell for a food establishment is overpowering and makes many feel ill.
Unable to use outside area as the drains had exploded!!or that is what we were told.
Bar staff choosing "there own" choice of music on the duke box which may not always be suitable for diners and customers!
No traditional beer available as " bar-staff not strong enough to change the barrel" but with many strong armed chefs around the bar, seems hard to believe!
These are just my opinions, and did not stop us all enjoying a lovely meal, with a lovely lady serving us, who was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble we will be back again soon.
