As stated, this was our second visit. It is a very nice environment but, on both occasions, I have been underwhelmed. Firstly, by the special fish and chips (salmon too salty) and today the cod. The quality of the cod was poor. It was overpriced...More

Lovely location with inside and outside seating areas. Menu is limited to some extent. The salmon fish supper is very tasty and worth the price. Prices of seafood to take away and cook yourself are high when compared to the smokehouse just along the road...More

Visited here whilst on holiday in the area. The staff were warm and friendly, and even made suggestions from the menu. The brioche bun with smoked salmon and trout was to die for, gorgeous. I can highly recommend if you are in the area.More
