Stumbled on the reviews of this place by accident. How many years have I lived here and never eaten here? - shame on me!!! So today I took a detour down to the bay for lunch. The tables were packed and they were honest enough to warn you about the waiting time of approx. 40 mins. Placed our order, and wandered off around the harbour to watch the film crew going about their business there. Wandered back 35 mins later, dropped straight into a vacant seat having announced our arrival and lunch arrived in a few moments later.
The famous smoked haddock chowder was a delight and not too heavy, and was served with two hunks of rustic bread. Then we followed that with a prawn platter. The platter had fresh prawns, crevettes in filo pastry, king prawns, tempura prawns & a mini prawn cocktail in a scallop shell, sweet chilli sauce dip & colourful side salad. It was worth the wait, it really was. I glanced at another table tucking into the fish stew which looked gorgeous colours glinting in the sunlight, and I then whispered a comment to my other half regarding another customers choice of sausage & chips - did she really have no idea of what stunningly simple tasting food she was missing ?. it was all an utter delight, and it was a glorious day to be sitting by the harbour savouring every mouthful. The portion size was ample, the plates, cutlery and boards spotlessly clean. Other customers around me were speaking highly of the quality & taste of their food when asked. My only negative comment is that the young waitress should have really noticed that our little silver table was in need of a wipe down to remove the bird poo before she placed the basket of bread down, in advance of the other food arriving. I shall look forward to many re visits and shall work my way through the menu.The next tables scallops looked and smelt divine! thank you for such a wonderful lunch. Two courses £17 - bargain. Closes at 5pm
