Stopped here for a drink, a bite and a view. It was perfect for all of them. Great pause for the afternoon.

A lovely place to dine or have drinks overlooking the harbour to watch sunset colours on the water. There is the option of dinning on the decking or several areas inside. The restaurant is divided into differnt seating areas. There are open book shelves dividing the areas with books and games to be used. The meals were lovely and the... More

I have visited Foxglove previously but had been to the restaurant, which is always lovely. On Monday night the restaurant was fully booked so we decided to have food from the bar. I was pleasantly surprised lovely grilled fish, salad and chips, and my daughter had a burger. The restaurant here is always lovely, but obviously a great place for... More

Perfect food, exceptional service and great atmosphere. I have been to Foxglove before but it was a few years back now, which I enjoyed, but thought the prices were a bit steep. This week's experience was superb - fish cooked to perfection, side dishes lovely and a divine dessert, and the prices were definitely a little lower than my original... More

Had a table of 13 for Anniversary dinner. Food was fine, although my pork belly wasn't melt in the mouth. Asked for a cake to be made, which was a great size but decorated appallingly!

The staff where super friendly and helpful , they had a bar menu or dinner menu option - we opted for the chicken burger which was yum and the steak sambo which was average - lovely location and reasonably priced

We had a drink at the bar before doing a walk-in booking for a meal. The after work bar crowd were noisy but tolerable. The food - in a different part of the establishment - was magnificent. We did a repeat of a meal we had in another place last week and there was no comparison. My fish (snapper) was... More

Dropped into this venue for a drink as a time-killer. Had a great time. View very good and on a very windy day, it was sheltered without taking away from the views. Always packed, it seemed that it was a sure hit with the locals and other tourists

We enjoyed lunch up on the balcony and the food was very nice. Unfortunately every interaction with the service was negative. One chap seemed on to it but the rest just didn't seem to have a clue. Service was slow at the counter and our meals came out all over the place. They clearly need some decent trading as this... More
