Ate early dinner, and was very impressed. The exterior is pretty, the foods good, the service was prompt, friendly and professional. Great place for a bite to eat or drink, with a view of the surrounding dock.

We ate here and found it to be well priced and good service. The inn itself is set like a very old inn and it sits in a lovely area of a water way with boats moored up. Will tell friends about this place.
