Have visited this bar several times. Really excellent seafood. If you don't like seafood probably to be avoided. It's a very quaint old bar too with a good view over Knightstown harbour and the roll on roll off ferry shuttling too and forth.

Cosy pub type restaurant. Extraordinary seafood dishes, good wine. Amazing views watching ferry going back and forth to Valencia Island, beautiful sunset over sea. Seating a bit chaotic but it all works and is part of the experience .
