“Great service with delicious food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

One of my friends had the garlic bread as a nibble while you wait. The portion were so generous that we were able to share it between the three of us. But was not to garlicky.

The other had the white bait as a starter with garlic mayo. Said the fish was cooked just right.

Fish cake were packed with fish without the usual mash or meal.

I had creamed piped mash, smoked haddock, cheese sauce & poached egg with spinach as a side dish. Let me tell you I never have the same meal twice in a restaurant.
But this dish was superb!!! I was thinking about it days later.

“Pretty Bad - Poor Service, Food and Ambience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We had lunch. We were greeted by a young pretentious waiter who quiclky descended oin us to take our drinks order. Without the benefit of a wine list, we ordered a glass of red and a glass of white. The waiter what type - but we don't have a wine list! - anyway we are knwoledgeable about wine and managaed to order without seeing the wine list (or knowing the price of what we had ordered). The menu is very strange in its selection and quite restrictive. We had the house burger (£9). When it arrived we were very disappointed. It was very small and served with over cooked skiiny chips. For £9 I would expect the burger to have been patty like and obviously home made, but it wasn not and we are oretty sure that it had been bought in. Frankly Waitrose's or M&S's pure burgers would have been better. There is rock music blaring from the radio, very little ambience, a motley/sad assortment of fellow diners and continued brash service. We left after having consumed our 2 burger and chips and 2 small glasses of wine and paid the £30 bill.

In summary I will not be re-visiting this place in a hurry!

We do not know the area and found this restaurant by chance. We were absolutely delighted - a lovely warm welcome, excellent service and good fresh food. We had a lovely meal.

“Excellent food, service and a warm welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

I just recently visited this restaurant with my family, we were greated at the door with a warm welcome, and taken to a table facing the seafront and near to the chef, which was lovely to see him cooking. Out waitress was very polite and friendly, and looked after us the entire evening. Our whole meal was very enjoyable, and presented well, the white bait and scallops were very tasty, our mains too, and the desert was heavenly, we shared the chiefs assiette of desserts.

We would certainly go back and would recomend to others.
