Lovely meal with great service. Lovely small venue with good atmosphere. We both had the crab cakes to start, followed by the lamb for main course. Both were great.

Beautifully cooked local produce at very reasonable prices. A professional and assured service in a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. 71 makes the most of local fish.
