Great location, surrounded by crashing waves and a cosy fire inside. Dont let the cheap prices fool you into thinking its small portions! Excellent value for money, flavourful food, good atmosphere, great evening out.

West Coast black mussels were something to behold! Reviewed at our table as best dish ever. This, combined with the lovely fresh oysters and wine, made our day. Ask for Gerry - warm, friendly and helpful. Great service!

We visited on a rainy day but the view directly over the tidal pool & ocean was mesmerising. The meals were tasty and they had a great selection of seafood meals for kids & adults. The grilled calamari was delicious!

The Bell is all about location. It is as if you are seated in the surf. Always busy, the quality of the food is good and so is the service. A great place to spend time with friends.

The Brass Bell is great place, winter or summer, to spend a lazy afternoon. Sip your drink, eat delicious seafood and watch the waves crash on the rocks! Perfect!
