We arrived after a long walk, 10 minutes before the kitchen closed. Our waiter seated us and got our order in quickly. We had the meatloaf with pepper sauce (which I highly recommend!) and the roast pork. The portions were huge, the food was great and the staff checked in frequently to make sure we wanted for nothing. The meal... More

Went here for a beer and a bite to eat our first night on arrival. Food was very good and salad with local goat cheese was excellent. Will definitely return before we leave. GF options were impressive and prices very reasonable.

We visited lately for lunch on a Saturday. There was a bit of a rush as a lot of people arrived at the same time and the man serving us obviously couldn't handle it. He was grumpy to the point of being rude. I just had a toasted sandwich - it was fine but the thin sliced pan made it... More

Hi there, I find this review very amusing. You say you 'understand' why someone was grumpy, but obviously have zero sympathy for him and when he rectified his behaviour, you decided it wasn't enough?! Would you like him to send you some flowers and an apology note?! I don't really know how to respond to your comment on our sliced... More

This place was great! Very busy when we went (dinner time) Fantastic live music (the man who played the fiddle deserves a million dollars) Great drinks, solid meal. The dessert options were really tastey (I got a lemon dessert, very yummy) Fun atmosphere, really nice service.

Popped in on passing and immediately found the place to be cosy and liked the look of the menu. Starter was huge and could nearly do as a main course and then the main was lovely and easily the nicest freshest fish I have ever had. Highly recommended. The pricing was just right too.

While dining on our delicious foods, we were pleasantly surprised by a pair of mucisicans who played traditional music. It was grand! We highly recommend this gem.

The staff are very friendly and chatty. We got some great advice about a walk we will do. The food was delicious, great selection and the best seafood chowder we have had so far. Warm and cosy.
