The Marsland boys provide a very adequate menu and service cannot be faulted. Dine here frequently and am never disappointed. Fish chowder is superb and on this visit it appeared that around 75% of diners ordered this dish.

Lovely relaxed lunch with great service. Very casual pub with staff that know what they're doing and really enjoying making your experience worth a visit. Great choice of food and drinks on offer. We will definitely be back. It may be casual and relaxing, but there's nothing casual about the quality of food and service. :)

Food got it 4 stars, service would be 3. It was slow and not just once, but twice! Don't know what is going on in the kitchen, but they need to move a little faster!
