A wet Tuesday night saw us try out Finn Patrick/the Diamond bar for dinner. Top seafood off the specials board, great chicken goujons and a fine steak and Guinness pie. Barman/waiter didn't have the word 'no' in his vocabulary. We'll be back! Thanks

Came here on a Saturday night. Great atmosphere, friendly locals and good food. Had garlic mushrooms, garlic prawns and breaded plaice. Well cooked and tasty, although I found my prawns a little oilier than I liked, but still delicious.
