Probably the worst Chicken Tikka Masala I have ever had, my wife's gammon ham sandwich was on the turn, very little filling in any of the sandwiches and overpriced.

Can't comment on the food as we didn't eat here (and didn't see anyone else eating either) but we enjoyed sitting outside to have a drink looking at the harbour and the views. The barmaid was very friendly and was happy to have our custom. The inside did look a bit run down and the toilets weren't very clean, but the outdoor area was nice and we would all recommend having a drink there on a sunny summers evening!

A 49 minute wait for frozen burnt chips and over cooked steak. My husband's meal came 5 minutes before mine, rendering his cold. Cutlery not brought to the table or in sight. Hunt the condiments was a fun game whilst you wait. Waiting staff untidy, unhelpful and verging on rude. Unhelpful when informing the staff of the standanrds. Apparently they knew thY the frozen chips were burnt when they brought them out...Appalling!

we have had a meal here on previous occasions which was quite satisfactory, but on Sunday we ate there and were disgusted by the quality of the service and the food ,a lady in front of us asked for pork crackling which the server pulled off with his fingers minus gloves or tongs and placed the meat on the plate pushing it again with fingers disgusting the chef needed lessons on how to cook vegetables cabbage was tough and colourless, dreadful the last meal we will be eating there !

We wanted to sit outside overlooking the harbour so this was about the only choice for an evening meal.
The staff were helpful and friendly but it ends there...
The menu suggests family food at a good price but, in reality, the food is dire and a complete waste of money.
The fish was grey in colour and could not have been fresh, despite being on the harbour?
The chips were a meagre portion and not well cooked.
5 of us ate and not one of the meals was of an acceptable standard for the type of venue.
If they want customers then they need a complete revamp of the food offering from the chef down.
