We had lunch in the bar. They offer indoor and outdoor tables all with a sea view across the harbour. The food was excellent so was the service. Surrounded by run down pubs and fish and chip shops this is a little gem. We would...More

Lovely meal and ambience. Lots of choice, however felt it was rather expensive for the location! But overall very happy with the service and food. Baked mussels highly recommended.

An after thought visit. Booked the day before, but hadn't realised there was a festival on so arrived a bit early. No problem parking lots of car parks around. Nice greeting from very enthused staff. Really hot day so the restaurant could use its harbour...More

Second time we have been not cheap but you get what you pay for. Great staff, great food and excellent views. Atmosphere was superb as was the room we had booked with rocksalt just opposite the restaurant, left feeling refreshed and well looked after.

We were really excited having heard good reports but massively disappointed. Someone has already mentioned it is noisy and they are right ! I would say it's deafening - Our table was booked for 8pm and we arrived on time. The staff were with us...More
