I love this restaurant. It is a little bit old fashioned décor wise but that doesn't detract from the atmosphere. The staff could be a little more attentive but when you get their attention they are helpful. The food is slightly different from neighbouring eateries and good value for money.

This was our first time here and we thought it was very good. Nice atmosphere, tasty food and good service. My only criticism was that the top of my creme brûlée was burnt but other than that everything was really enjoyable. Will go again.

is a good place if you don't want to take risk, you will have a good meal ina affordable range of prices. The mussels are really good. The board to share is a little bit poor. But for it I'll make do. Good service.

Stuart, who served us on our quiet, early dinner on a Sunday afternoon, recommended a main course and dessert to perfectly match my level of appetite. The food was well-balanced, and Stuart gave very personable service.
