Pleasant staff...but why do they allow the bar downstairs to be taken over by heavy drinkers? Felt uncomfortable and it spoilt the evening. Food was ok, but only just, fish overcooked. Wife's fish stew was 95% salmon although requested scallops were subsequently provided without fuss....More

Just a lovely spot looking onto the sea - we sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. The girls serving are lovely and gave me a couple of the scallop shells I was eyeing up!! Nice fire burning too when it got a bit chilly outside

We had one meal here (booked, and you probably should!) which was very good. The staff were friendly and attentive. I would eat here again.
