What a delightful place. We had a wonderful meal here. The menu is not extensive but offers fresh catch, well cooked and superbly presented. Not the cheapest place to eat but the quality of the food, the service and staff were well worth it. From...More

This was the first time I have been, the food is excellent. All the food is cooked to order and really fresh. The sweets are out of this world. The wine is about adverage for a town restaurant.

I recently had a meal here with a friend. The food was good but very overpriced. I had battered fish fingers and chips which was nice, however nothing special so did not justify the £16.50. I can think of other places where you would get...More

Not that I'm aware of although they like you to be smartly dressed at weekends.
Sir - having chosen to besmirch my character on this website and lied about our correspondence (my letter to you was dated and sent 13 Sep - accept I got the date wrong in my posting) - so please provide details of your advocate to allow my solicitor to pursue your perverse statements through the courts. I am neither 'rude' nor 'condescending' and what you describe as a 'tirade' was a fair report of the food that your team/suppliers provided - I still shudder at the memory of at least 3 instances of approx 2.5 inch long by 1/2 inch wide pieces of crab shell in the 'coriander' soup - life-threatening to be sure. Your mother's misaddressed e-mail was OK by me and whilst some of the points were unusual (e.g. to engage with your suppliers directly) it offered a £50 voucher which if we determined we'd ever revisit the IoM and your restaurant we would have taken up (neither of these appeals to us). Judging from your responses to other 'negative' reviews on this site you are a rude and uncaring provender that deserves no happy clients. Your suggestion that we should have returned to discuss our 'niggles' was absurd - we were on holiday and not minded to return/waste time on Tanroagan engagement. John
