As a birthday treat we were taken here with our wine hamper (they don’t serve alcohol) and it was lovely. The scallops were delicious and the lobster lasagne was TDF (to die for). My wife had Stonebass and that was also delicious.

Hi, It's about £40 per head there was 4 of us it's not bad price wise and the food is gorgeous. Hope this helps and remember you need to take your own alcohol as they do not sell it but there is an off licence opposite.
