Went for in for lunch and should have noticed that there was only one other small table of 3 dinning. We ordered the lamb shank and chicken caesar salad. The lamb shank was ROCK hard and uneatable. Despite being only the 2nd table in the whole establishment we had to call over the waitstaff as neither of them checked on... More

Lovely fresh food and fantastic service. Highly recommend. We had the lamb shanks, catch of the day and chicken wrap. All meals were good size portions and fresh ingredients. Great atmosphere and even a peek of the sea.

Six friends meeting for lunch. We had well presented meals with good variety on offer and at reasonable prices. Staff were very attentive but even though we were the only diners, service was slow. The meals arrived two by two each about 8 minutes apart. Didn't overly bother us but could annoy other diners.

The decor is a little dated, and the tables are a little close to each other, however, when the food arrived, these little niggles are completely forgotten!. The food was hot and appetising, and the portions were very very generous, as well as being... More

A few friends and I went for a meal to celebrate the return of a friend back from overseas. Several different meals were had between us and everyone was very happy with their meal. Staff friendly, helpful and (most importantly) courteous! I can especially loved the Ship & Anchor lager, we'll all be back for sure!
