Another visit to Below Decks. Not warm enough to sit on the harbour side so found a table in the restaurant. Red onion and tuna baguette and a chilli jacket potato. All good. Nicely presented with salad. Tables could have been a bit tidier and cleaner. Not busy so no reason for this. Generally still a good place to eat... More

Needed a nice breakfast to keep us going for the day. Out of season thought it might be a problem. After a few false starts we happened on this great little place. Choice was great. We had mushrooms on toast and poached eggs on toast. Lovely. And really friendly and helpful service. Ready for my next breakfast.

Nice, warm and welcoming on a cold morning. We enjoyed a tasty well-cooked breakfast. Decor is lovely too with a maritime theme in-keeping with its location. Definitely worth a return visit.

Had lunch here today and was not disappointed, friendly staff attentive and welcoming, with the added bonus of sitting outside on this balmy September day. Will certainly visit again and can thorougly recommend Below Decks.
