Fabulous fresh and uncomplicated seafood with a wonderful atmosphere. The quality of the seafood is amazing something almost unobtainable in the big cities. But you need to pick your time as they don't take bookings

Have visited this bar several times. Really excellent seafood. If you don't like seafood probably to be avoided. It's a very quaint old bar too with a good view over Knightstown harbour and the roll on roll off ferry shuttling too and forth.
