You will be asked if you want water at the table. You agree and receive a carafe of chilled still water. On your bill will be included a charge of £3.95 for this. Only after we had paid did we see the carafe being washed...More

If the thought of food on the afternoon sailing of Manannan does not fill you with excitement then what about lunch before you go. Lunch is served from 11.30 am therefore plenty of time before the 2.15 pm final check in time. We had a...More

One of the best restaurants in Douglas thanks to its atmosphere, lovely design and delicious food. There's a good variety of fish on the menu, and although it's not the biggest selection of dishes/wines, all is cooked to perfection and served piping hot. The staff...More

One of the few decent restaurants on the isle of Man. Small restaurant behind a conventional shop front just off the quay side. Excellent sea food. Nice informal atmosphere and friendly servers. Not inexpensive

Not that I'm aware of although they like you to be smartly dressed at weekends.
Sir - having chosen to besmirch my character on this website and lied about our correspondence (my letter to you was dated and sent 13 Sep - accept I got the date wrong in my posting) - so please provide details of your advocate to allow my solicitor to pursue your perverse statements through the courts. I am neither 'rude' nor 'condescending' and what you describe as a 'tirade' was a fair report of the food that your team/suppliers provided - I still shudder at the memory of at least 3 instances of approx 2.5 inch long by 1/2 inch wide pieces of crab shell in the 'coriander' soup - life-threatening to be sure. Your mother's misaddressed e-mail was OK by me and whilst some of the points were unusual (e.g. to engage with your suppliers directly) it offered a £50 voucher which if we determined we'd ever revisit the IoM and your restaurant we would have taken up (neither of these appeals to us). Judging from your responses to other 'negative' reviews on this site you are a rude and uncaring provender that deserves no happy clients. Your suggestion that we should have returned to discuss our 'niggles' was absurd - we were on holiday and not minded to return/waste time on Tanroagan engagement. John
