“A real treat”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This is very different to most catering in the area. It is a wine bar, serving imaginative nibbles and snacks. We loved it particularly in the afternoon after a long walk. The wine list is extensive with a number served by the glass. Also a lovely location to while away an hour or so watching the world go by and the boats in the harbour. Also good for a drink in the evening after a restaurant meal. The staff are young and friendly.

“Sit and watch the world go by”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Just visited this new venve on harbour side and what a fantastic place ,modeled to be a lounge on one of the iocnic liners of the thirtys. Service is firstclass and the work that has gone into the art decor but but not making it over powering is special.
I vist the town by sea several times a year and have got to know some of the local faces and when you see locals in a holiday town establishment there is no better advertisment.
We sat in the comfortable surroundings and watched night fall as the boats bobbed on their mooring just a few feet from the wine bar,Classic.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

A quiet wine bar with good views of the harbour, tried some tapas and it was delicious. A little expensive but worth it.
