Love fish restaurants and this one didn't disappoint. Lovely welcoming atmosphere. The owner chatted to us about recommendations, which we appreciated. All staff were friendly and professional. The stuffed rolled sole in pastry was a delight (can't remember what it was called). The chowder starter was also delicious. Thank you all for a lovely evening.

Nice place to eat, relaxing atmosphere owner a bit of a character and very friendly. To me they are too keen to push dishes that aren't on the menu, I can understand them wanting to move product they may have had in the fridges for a few days as fish goes off quickly. Had some starters he recommended which were... More

I've been here twice, both times I've found the ambience good, friendly competent waitress and exciting sounding menu. The bread, butter & aioli on the table when you arrive is lovely. The scotch egg starter I tried was great. Unfortunately both times the main course has been a huge disappointment - microwaved bland vegetables (including to my horror, once probably... More

That was really nice. We said what we'd like and he made suggestions.. We ordered Oysters on ice - Mussels in a creamy white... More

The food is very good. Unfortunately there seems to be a lack of heat in the restaurant. You need to be well wrapped up. Even the waiters keep their hands wrapped up. The owner is a bit OTT and at times a bit embarrassing. Having said that I wouldn't hesitate in going back in the summer when it's a bit... More

Dear John R , Thank you for your review . It would seem that you came on the same night as a customer from the review underneath. We have acknowledged the temperature and we have now put extra heater in the main dining room , which gives us 4 heaters in total . However , I do apologise . I... More

Visited for the first time with friends on Thursday evening. Unfortunately it was a very cold night and the heating was hardly adequate. Fish dishes were good but would have been better on hot plates. Personally I found the manager a little too familiar.

Really nice food for me. Had oysters for starter and a beautiful main. Didn't feel there was a lot I would have chosen as the menu was quite limited, the day we went. Nothing for children. My 6 year old had the only option of a plate of mashed potatoes, obviously he could have had anything on the menu, but... More

This restaurant is lovely, the food is excellent serving fresh well presented seafood, but unfortunately no one ever returns because the owner wont leave you alone and talks to you while your eating, shame!!!!
