I took my team there for Christmas lunch. We had good food but the setting was great. I would recommend it.

We ate here on the first evening of our stay having been recommended to visit by the staff in the Travelodge. It was an acceptable choice but, on the whole, not good value for money. It was not an establishment which I expected not to have Campari and to offer the excuse 'we ran out of it last week' was... More

Joined my son for lunch to check out the refurbishment. All looks totally stunning, it was good before but now even better. Nice touched in that the menu is now all on one very well designed card and the bar area is great. Oh and by the way the food, drink and staff were brillant

Visited with my daughter for an afternoon meal & chat, very pleasant with friendly staff & new look to the bar. Well thought out menu & nice wines available (although a bit pricey). Nice to see the unsightly 'smoking shelter' removed from right outside the restaurant windows & people using the outside deck area for socializing, much better view! My... More

Me and my family ate here after a visit to the marina. They certainly don't know how to run a restaurant. We were shown to our table in the conservatory and we were given the menu straight away, but it took 20 minutes before any of the waitresses came and took our drinks and food order. The drinks took about... More

Four of us visited after the restaurant refit. The place looks fresh, but still homely with the log fire. We went for the Freshly made pizza with a superb thin crust and plenty of filling...and super value.

We ordered tagines and French fish stew. Both were minimal amounts on the plates. The fish stew was about 3 pieces of fish and a prawn in a tomato broth. Not even enough for a starter. We had to order some extra chips after it arrived. Appalling value for money. Dead atmosphere.

Rocked up with a large group, all a bit tipsy. Welcomed us and opened the kitchen to cook us steaks. Returned the next evening and caught the entertainment. Great place and staff. Highly recommended
