Had dinner here on 2 nights (Friday and Sunday), all of the dishes were fresh, tasty and plentiful. Service was excellent. Can reccommend the steak pie - the best I have ever had, unbelievably rich gravy. The taster dessert was ideal, just the right amount of a variety of lovely things. Absolutely no hesitation in giving this 5 stars; we... More

On holiday but wish we lived closer as we would be regulars! Small, cosy restaurant with friendly service. Ate off the a la carte menu, smoked salmon parcels really tasty, and the sea bass was very fresh and worked really well with the pea risotto. Very reasonably priced.

A lovely restaurant serving a variety of well cooked, fresh food. The steak was perfect and the sea bass so fresh it could have just jumped out the harbour. Staff friendly. Price good for the quality of the food. Would definitely come again.

It was a busy Friday night and they still managed to accommodate. Which was brilliant and much appreciated! I didn't have to wait long to order or for the food. Which was delicious! Thank you:)

We were staying here visiting relatives and decided to try The Clansman based on what the visitors book in our cottage recommended, I can say that we weren't disappointed, the food was lovely, well presented, good value and served quickly and fresh, whilst we didn't suffer from it being busy, I can see why it would be busy in the...

The food was good and not expensive, but the wait was very very long. Seating was all cramped up together so, with nowhere else to sit while waiting, it was not comfortable.
