We called in here for lunch recently and were very pleased with the whole experience. The mussels were fresh, large and in a tasty sauce. The quiche was generous and tasty as well. Just what we wanted and all served efficiently and politely.

I would say that Severnshed next door is a better drinking place; it has a larger balcony overlooking the water so if it is a nice sunny day/evening it's lovely.
