Walked in on a Sunday afternoon to an empty bar with a very sullen looking barmaid scowling at us. If I had sense I'd have walked back out. Distinct lack of interest from the staff and no atmosphere.

Absolutely a must. Definitely lives up to the hype. The chowder has won multiple awards( probably not as many as it should) & was some of the best seafood I've ever had & I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay of Virginia.

Went here for the sea good chowder as we heard they had won a prize for it. It was very nice loads of fish in it and great brown bread. Was a slight bit to creamy

Had a meal here and it was delicious. Plentiful and homely. The chowder was thick creamy and plentiful served with delicious brown bread. The burger was homemade and juicy. Well worth a visit for well cooked homely food.

We visited on a Wednesday evening so it was quiet. We ate in the bar. We had fish and steak - we were both extremely happy with our meals, the food was excellent. The service also very good - staff were welcoming and friendly.
