We took a chance and called in on a busy Sunday without booking and where quickly shown to a table in the busy restaurant.

Had lunch with my family here today. Food was PIPING hot, and portions were rather large. Chowder was over £12 which is very pricey for a lunch dish! Had a nice time but wouldn't hurry back...service was good.
