This restaurant is definitely welcoming, and makes me want to return. We had a round table for 8 which was nice as it meant we could all talk. I had the pork belly. The crackling was crispy, which is a must. Perhaps not the best...More

Fairly simple fare but good quality, served quickly by attentive waiting staff. Different specials each night represent very good value. Close to town centre and the seafront where you can walk off the extra calories afterwards.

Hi Sandra, Many thanks for your feedback. Having dogs inside was a bit unusual but we made an exception for one of our regular customers whom we know well. Dogs are usually allowed on the outside deck area but due to the wet weather we...More
