We regularly go over to Douglas for the TT and have been here for a meal several times in previous years. Never again! It was a busy evening - always is during TT week but even that was no excuse. The menu was restricted to say the least but we chose the gammon with chips and mango salsa. It was all but cremated when it arrived and the chips were very ordinary oven chips. However the awful meal was superseded by the awful customer service we experienced. When we found a free table it had been cleared but was sticky all over where drinks had obviously been spilled and then not wiped down properly. When the waitress brought our drinks we asked if she could wipe down the table. 'I will when I get a minute' was her curt reply. When she did get a minute it was smeared again with a tiny scrunched up cloth and had no effect whatsoever on the state of the table. We will certainly not be returning next year!

I don't often give 5 stars to restaurants, but I feel that this deserves to be noticed. It is a beautiful old place, which is very elegantly decorated. The chap who served me was excellent and attentive (but not overly so), and the food was first rate. Really enjoyed this one.

I have visited this nicely decorated pub on three occasions & have enjoyed every meal.
The young staff are keen & welcoming. The chef has been in the kitchen for about three months & she knows what she is doing. The menu is small but changes regularly. There are also a couple of dishes of the day.
On my recent visit the four of us started with Manx Queenies, a type of scallop & were delicious, Chicken Satay & Mussels in a tomato sauce. For mains we had Fish & Chips, pan fried Sea Bass with black pudding & beurre blanc, Ribeye Steak & Roasted Monkfish. Everything was well cooked & presented.
Together with a pre-dinner drink, a couple of bottles of a pleasant merlot, & coffee the bill came to £25 per head. Comparing prices on the Island this is considered something of a bargin!

I went there with a friend on Sunday 13th October whilst on holiday. We found the service very friendly and good - there was a staffing shortage which meant a member was cooking and waiting but he managed very well in the circumstances. Food from starters to puddings was very good - we also found it reasonably priced.
