Having posted previously I just wanted to say that I won't be visiting again, which I'm actually very disappointed about. Again I had good food (still believe there is too much inconsistency between chefs though), but after one too many incidents of what I can only say is terrible service I just won't be bothering again.

Staff very attentive and welcoming. Sat outside. Fish and chips enjoyed by 2 of the party. I really enjoyed the fish chowder. Gluten free chocolate fudge cake a hit with all of us.
