Any restaurant that thinks it's ok to serve frozen mashed potato that has been zapped in the microwave should be avoided. And this is such a restaurant. A child sized portion of fish and chips for an adult sized price ( we didn't dare eat it as it also looked very over cooked). All washed down with surly and couldn't... More

Great place to sit and watch the world go by. We very often go for a drink after work. Very popular spot in a great location.

Perfect scenery and prices are really good. A restaurant and pub but you can get a mixed grill for just over a tenner. If you don't have a lot of money but want a nice steak dinner, go here. Sit inside or outside overlooking the harbour and it won't break your bank either.

Stopped in for a pint and found they have a fair amount on tap and looks like they have an extensive menu. Inside was well decorated but rather dark so I went outside to the patio which had outdoor heaters for us smokers with lots of tables. Well worth a second look

The food here has always been of good value. My dog is always welcome. You can have a nice glass of something cold or a hot drink and be left alone to enjoy the ambience and watch the world go by. Loving the out door heaters for the nippier evenings.

Located on the harbour this bar/restaurant is alright, nothing special. Outside seating is ideal for people watching but inside is a little dark and not very inviting. The food we saw being served was reasonable.

As the sun was briefly shining we decided to sit outside and enjoy a drink and lunch. The staff are lovely, polite and efficient. We were a bit put off by the prices, but had settled so decided to go with it. £4.45 for a pint of Guinness, fiver for a sandwich. Still, it was nicely presented! Ploughman's was a... More

We stopped of here as we wanted to enjoy the lovely summers evening, staff were friendly and the view over the harbour was amazing, we had a few reasonably priced drinks here and moved on as the sun had set and it was a bit chilly
