We were looking for a quick bite to eat after a day on the island. The decor is dated but very clean. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent. We had fish and chips which was fresh with a nice crisp batter. The children had macaroni cheese. For this genre of restaurant you cannot fault it. Very good value. I recommend.

Like my other review I ate here on my own - there were single diners, couples and families in here. The menu contains decent British food - I had steak and kidney pie. This wasn't an individual pie that looked like it had been frozen, but a decent sized slice from a larger pie. It came with peas, carrots, boiled and roast potatoes. Very good value meal.

We came here for breakfast. The customer service was good but the food was average/poor. The bill came to £11, whereas the same meal and drinks at The Captain's Table came to £7.50 and was a lot nicer!
