We had dinner here and the food was lovely, the only thing that put me off was that dogs were allowed in when you were eating. Nothing worse than having a panting/dribbling dog by you when you're trying to eat. Sorry!

We are two alults with two kids; we all chose the fish special, which was grilled whole plaice. Just suberb. Quick friendly service, reasonable pricing, and the chef knows exactly what he's doing. Recommended.

Having read good reviews we booked a table for 6. We didn't realise we'd end up in the back room which is like being in a cave - no windows. Food disappointing for all but one of us. I had scallop and prawn linguini which...More
