If you want great quality in a lovely environment, this is the place to go. We had some fantastic local fresh fish and lovely veg served by friendly staff. Perfect.

Confusingly also called the Lobster Pot, this a gem of a small restaurant. Has a family feel to it and everything about the food is perfect. They serve what is brought in on the day boats so turn up and see what is on offer....More

Ate here at the weekend and was surprised to find it half empty. Staff tried hard and we can see what they are trying to accomplish, but sadly our meal fell far short of the expectation. It started well with the home made bread –...More

Child friendly yes and pushchairs can be carried up the stairs. Wheel chairs NO as the stairs are too steep.
