Had a meal here on the Saturday night, staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. I had crab and ginger soup and my wife had the kipper. The main course was fish pie and fish stew. We didn't have a desert as were...More

Excellent but small fish restaurant serving mainly local seafood but with a couple of options for non fish eaters or vegetarians. Always good service and due to its small size it usually has a good atmosphere. Hard to beat for consistency and quality.

Lovely food, couldn't fault it. Only thing is, didn't realise how small the restaurant was, which wasn't really a problem as the decor is beautiful - the toilet isn't in a great place, right next to the kitchen - slightly off putting and considering the...More

Went with a group from work for Christmas meal, so all food was pre-ordered. It still took over an hour for starters to arrive. The food was okay, but nothing special, and not anywhere near being worth the price (£42 for a three course meal)....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
