I had booked a table for four adults and a baby and had specifically mentioned that we had a buggy, to celebrate my mother in-law's birthday. When we were being shown to our table on arrival it was clear that another diner's chair was partially blocking the path so the buggy couldn't fit. I had started to say 'excuse me'... More

Our first visit. And the food met every expectation. Bigger portions. Better than expected. Beautiful and fresh. Not over expensive. Just delicious. If you can get a table then do it!!

I came here for dinner. Had the lobster to start which was cooked perfectly and came served with some great garlic chips. My main was rib-eye, and while it was closer to rare than medium-rare as I had asked, it was a great steak and came with a refreshing tomato salad. My pudding of icecream with espresso poured over the... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner as a family. The food comes highly recommended! Delicious warm sourdough bread and butter while we waited and we had the squid for starters and the lobster thermidor and brown crab for mains. Well worth the prices.

Here for a few days and liked the slightly quaint look, touch old fashioned and all the better for it. Proper linen, decent cutlery, nice table settings, it all felt very grown up. The food doesn't disappoint, we enjoyed all we had, my wife really enjoyed the fish stew ("best ever"). Felt like decent value for the money for the... More

If you are a seafood lover u should visit this restaurant. We had a really good experience with food and service. It is on a pricey point but deserves it. The service was the best we have ever had. We will be back again.

Thank sofiyaj1
