Thought the food was very good and good value. Felt that as we were not local, the service speed dipped and others arriving later were served first somehow.

We enjoyed eating at this restaurant during our visit this month. The fish and chips was very good - nice fresh piece of fish which you expect out of a fishing village. the pizzas are also quite good. Friendly staff.

The food was great, however we had to wait over 30 minutes after we finished eating to get our check. In fact, other people who finished eating after us were able to pay their bill before us. I will not eat there again.

Don't be put off by the casual appearance. The food here is top notch. The fish and chips are excellent! The smoked salmon pasta dish is a winner, too. A really great meal in a very picturesque location.

Following a poor experience at an earlier restaurant we found this establishment excellent. The food was lovely and the staff made an effort to accommodate 12 without a booking. Would definitely go there again and recommend to all.
