Pleasant enough surroundings with great service and lovely food. Possibly the best seafood I've had anywhere, plenty of it and really good value for money.

Hi, I would like to celebrate my 29th birthday at Lord Prawn this coming Friday evening (19 February 2016). I will be joined by my wife, both parents and my 8 month old infant. Can you cater for my little girl? (high chair etc.) We were regulars back in the early noughties (between 2001-2004) and we loved the food. I am so happy to see that you have made the Top 10 and will greatly appreciate your accommodation this Friday evening. I look forward to a positive response and I hope you have a great day. Kind regards Tamish
