Tacky provincial decor, overpriced food and drink, claims to be a gastro pub but it definitely isn't. Fantastic location purely for unsuspecting tourists.

The location is perfect, and the food is very good, but the service is slow and sullen, cold and unfriendly. Perhaps everyone is jaded at the end of the Season? The staff could all use some service skills training. The terrace is lovely, but is...More
