Went for an early evening meal mid week and booked a table in advance. We were second couple to arrive but within an hour every table was taken. A nice menu selection and reasonably priced wine choice. Nicely presented and friendly staff.

During a visit to the Isle of Man we visited Macfarlanes on a recommendation. We were not disappointed. A small but perfectly prepared lobster complimented by the almost ubiquitous Queenies was very enjoyable as was my partner's rib-eye. Excellent.
