We were staying at the Sunn Inn across the road and would normally have eaten there however, after a walk around we decided to try here as we fancied Italian food. I popped in and asked if we could book a table for 6,30pm, a quick consult of a clipboard and I was assured this was fine and offered where... More

Fantastic food, all freshly prepared. Big starters, and lovely thin pizzas. The service was great too, sensible prices during happy hour. Thoroughly recommended, thank you for a great meal.

Very tasty. We were full and ate lightly but wished we weren't! Everything was wonderfully prepared and delicious from fresh ingredients.

This is a restaurant that shares everything with the Hope and Anchor next door, including the menus and staff. The place has a good ambience, and the food that we had was excellent, although it's definitely worth going during 'happy hour' (16:00-17:30) for reduced prices.

First of all I would like to say how nice both the starter and main course was, food wise we had no complaints. However I can't say the same for the service, we first arrived and we politely asked if there was a table for 2 available, the girl then looked at us, then her clipboard from across the room...

Our granddaughter is a fussy eater and, after cooking during all our week's holiday, we decided to walk her up to this restaurant to see if she would eat anything on the menu so I could have a night off! She decided on a pepperoni pizza so we went into the restaurant during happy hour which is 4-5.30 pm. We... More

Extremely nice Italian food, with a lot of local seafood too. I had a hot mackerel salad to start, followed by lobster linguine. Service was good. Prices are more expensive for some of the seafood, but other dishes are more in average price range.

We booked for bank holiday weekend, we arrived early and were told our table wasn't ready but we could have drinks next door. Our table was made ready really quickly, table service was really good and staff were lovely. The food was really nice garlic bread, pizza and pork/beef main. Canny night out and a decent price

Charming little restaurant with an open kitchen and wood fire oven. Seafood ravioli was nice aswell as the pizza my husband had. Was hard trying to get the attention of the waiters so we were left without drinks for a while. Apart from that everything was good. Would come back for the food hoping they improve their attentiveness.
