I booked this via an itison voucher deal to take my parents for a meal. However neither of my parents nor my other half were keen to go but I insisted and am sooo glad I did. None of them are overly keen on seafood so they were a bit apprehensive about what they'd get but each of them were... More

My husband and I visited today with an itison voucher. Service was excellent as always and the food was amazingly good. The Cullen skink my husband said was one of the best he has tasted. The smoked haddock rarebit was divine. Mussels and guinea fowl were excellent too. Great value for money. All in all a perfect Saturday lunch!

Had their 6 course taster menu and I can thoroughly recommend it. I particularly enjoyed the hake main course, I savoured every mouthful. All the staff were pleasant and helpful and the Sommelier made great wine recommendations for each course. Overall a very enjoyable visit.

Fine dining at its finest - the smoked haddock rarebit followed by guinea fowl for me and bouillabaisse followed by hake for my friend. It was a real delight and the service was attentive throughout and all of this from the table d'hote menu. And if all that was not enough the views from our table across the estuary were... More

The restaurant's entrance is quite difficult to get to from the (free) car park. If you have not been before you could get lost ... need better sign posts ... My friend and I were given a table in front of the big glass window which has a great view of the sea ... the service was fantastic, the staff... More

We'd not been back for a long time and were delighted to find the restaurant is much more relaxed. A roaring log fire and music set a great atmosphere. The food was just wonderful, especially the scallops, the plaice and hake. We opted for the wine flight which turned out to be good value and perfectly matched to the food.... More

Having enjoyed our meal so much at the Seafood Restaurant the first time we decided on a return visit. It was a real disappointment. The restaurant was busier this time and service was poor. Our waiter seemed on a different planet (admittedly he was leaving that evening) and forgot our desert amongst other things. The food was boring - my... More

Visited restaurant midweek with Itison voucher for tasting menu. Found staff very friendly and knowledgeable from the start. The tasting menu was a real delight and I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant on food quality alone. They were not overly busy which is understandable at this time of year and as a consequence the courses maybe arrived a bit quicker... More

On this occasion, we used an itison voucher to enjoy the six-course bespoke tasting menu. It was clear that several other tables were on similar deals and we did get the slight impression that staff were less attentive than they might have been - perhaps voucher customers are deemed less worthwhile? The food was excellent, however. Every course had a... More
