Lovely food, beautifully prepared. My husband had lobster with queenies and I had fish gratin with Manx cheddar and lobster sauce. Highly recommend, great staff too.

Small cozy. Family recipes. Open Kitchen. Near courthouse. I enjoyed the atmosphere, watching them cook the food, and eating something that was unusual. My wife didn't like it. Thought it less than clean. Food not great. So, two different reviews from same dinner. I would...More

This used to be a fantastic restaurant which we have dined in for years. A recent visit proved disappointing. Food was dreadful. We won't be back. Not their usual standard on food or service.

Had an excellent meal here. Shared the Manchester Queenie Pancake, which was superb. Main fish dishes were delicious. We much appreciated being able to have mini puds.

Visited on a Friday night and it was very busy. Loads of specials on the board - we went for the mackerel and the skate wing. The skate was absolutely beautiful, served with butter and capers. It just flaked off the bones. My friend loved...More

Visited with my husband last month. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was good. It’s a family run business so maybe people are expecting service within 20 seconds. We will definitely return and recommend. Thank you so much for a delicious meal with...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
