We visited on Good Friday with 2 children (12 & 9) for dinner, and shared the seafood platter for 2 - there was enough for the four of us to enjoy a lovely meal and feel full. Service was friendly and efficient.

Warmly greeted as we arrived and were taken to our table. Service was friendly and helpful. Menu offered several lovely dishes to choose from, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Would definitely return. Saturday night fireworks, a lovely surprise!
