Our first visit to this great little restaurant but it won't be our last. Excellent food cooked to perfection, with the best homemade desserts I have ever tasted! Friendly service and a relaxed and warm atmosphere. Perfect.

Terrific restaurant with the freshest of fish simply cooked to perfection. Expertly cooked and the service is friendly welcoming and such a change from the norm. Love this place. Lovely night out. Would recommend without hesitation. 10 out of 10.

Visited on several occasions, never been disappointed. The owners Gordon and Hazel are always so welcoming and the food is always cooked to a very high standard and beautifully presented. I eat out regularly and this is one of my favourite restaurants.

First time here and certainly not the last! Lovely little restaurant with good English food, nice selection of wines and bottled beer and a warm welcome. Lovely background music too. Only open two nights a week, so expect to book weeks ahead. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.
