At first the owner/manager was a bit put out that we had not booked but, after we ordered he came round and was friendly. Very busy but nice surroundings. Food was good and great choices.

We had a lovely meal here and enjoyed the rustic and quaint décor as well. The mussels were excellent with a delicious lemony broth. Very prompt and friendly service as well.
