I have eaten here several times and can say that the surroundings are interesting but I always find the temperature chilly. Also the food quality can be variable, sometimes it is excellent but other times only average. Cullins Yard can be very busy and although the staff are friendly they seem rushed but the restaurant does have a good atmosphere... More

Was here on a Saturday night. Had great service and atmosphere. The portions were very generous - when I can't eat all my main course you know they have served a lot of food! Bread and olives are brought to the table for free when you order drinks which is a lovely touch that you don't get very often in... More

I really love the location of this place and the decor inside is unusual and quite quirky. They often have live bands on which makes a great atmosphere. I would say the food is generally pretty average but the waiting staff are friendly. Having said that, the mussels are good and always come with a decent amount of sauce and... More

We walked down from the marina for a quick meal as setting off early next morning. Place was quirky but felt scruffy - full ashtrays, dirty crockery etc. Everyone was friendly but food was a bit of a let down. Everything felt just "ok". Salad garnish had lettuce that was starting to brown, ham was a bit dry round the... More

Went for lunch with my wife after a strong recommendation from friends. The restaurant was pleasing to the eye and staff very friendly and attentive. I ordered fish and chips with mushy peas. A little bit slow in arrival but looked great. However, within a few minutes of eating the food became very cold and congealed on the plate and... More

Management response:

Hi Brian, I'm really sorry to read your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed the ambiance and service. Clearly there is a training issue here as we use a hot cupboard and our plates should still be hot by the time they reach you. I'm sorry this didnt happen on this occasion and it ruined your cod and chips. If... More

Located in a pub with a large, busy dining room that offers a view of the harbor. Outside dining available if weather good. Service was fine although seemed a bit understaffed. Decent wine list for meal for a pub. Had seafood and soup and found it quite acceptable, not great, but good. A good local place.

Had a lovely spur of the moment meal on a Saturday night, no booking but they were able to accommodate us with 5 mins notice. Lovely setting overlooking the marina and a superb 2 course meal. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated with various vintage paraphernalia​, I especially liked the Le Mans 24 Hour items. Super dinner, great service. Will... More

After a long - very long - day of traveling, we slipped into Cullins Yard Restaurant for dinner. The hostess greeted us and in dismay told us that several menu items were not available. But not a problem as there were many menu items to choose from! It was fun because this is a place the locals hang out at... More

We had a lovely meal here on our way home from the continent. The staff are friendly and very efficient and the food well presented and cooked. As pub meals go I would rate this place very highly and certainly will go again.
