We visited this establishment late lunch as two couples. Our partners had a panini and a ham and mustard baguette both were adequate. The smoked chowder was deeply disappointing to two hungry males. Wouldn’t order again.

Visited on recommendation, advisable to book. Popular and pleasant ambiance . We chose the black and white pudding as starter, quite tasty. Mains of fish stew and cod lion, well presented but of average flavour and portions.

The allotment has to be the best restaurant I've been to for gluten free. Staff are lovely , it is obvious to see that they value their customers very much. The food is delicious and I can't wait to go again :-)

Small car park at the rear of the Town Hall, opposite us on Ladywell Road. I believe it's free after 5:30 pm, but check the car park notice board to confirm this.
