I was wondering if it advisable to make reservations for either Friday (Feb. 27) or Saturday (Feb. 28)? The earliest we would be dining Friday would be 21:00 but earlier in the evening on Saturday.

Yes I would reserve a table. Fri/sat are fish & chips nights and if there are no tables there is not much else very close by for you to go to.
