We had dinner last week. Delicious - we shared the smoked fish croquettes and fish cakes as starters. Then had grilled blue eyed cod. Just a perfect meal topped off with lemon curd tart. Excellent food. Good wine selection too.

Atmosphere was pleasant and joint table we sat on was very spacious. The menu sounded nice, but when it came down to it we had fish and chips. We ordered two desserts and only received one, venue was also a little dark in certain spots.

We waited for over an hour from arrival to food with a young family it was quite hard work for dinner. The mains and desserts arrived with a temporal interval that was also hard to fathom

David knows his fish. The smoked fish arancini and the ceviche were delish, The mains of grilled and tempura kingfish were good too. Packed on the Monday night. Only open Mon and Thurs.
