If I was able to give four and a half stars for this review, I would. We had the seniors special which included potato and leek soup followed by a small (?) crumbed haddock and chips plus a pot of tea.

Stopped at lunch time, busy but plenty of seating room. Quick, friendly table service. The local haddock can not be beaten for quality.
