We were a table of 11 so we were accommodated in the back room which was very pleasant. As a large table, we had pre-ordered our food. We couldn't fault the food or the service of the food. However, we were paid very little attention...More

We've eaten here dozens of times and they have never let us down. The food is exquisite and you can bring your own booze too! Cash only but there is an ATM next door. You have to book!

Lovely seafood but very very small seating inside so we had takeaway, the lobster lasagna was outstanding and other seafood dishes were very good

Went for the first time with a Spanish friend. He was extremely impressed. The three of us sat at the bar and enjoyed a selection of seafood and took our own wine. Can't praise it enough!

Hi, It's about £40 per head there was 4 of us it's not bad price wise and the food is gorgeous. Hope this helps and remember you need to take your own alcohol as they do not sell it but there is an off licence opposite.
