A warm welcome from Jill (blond hair) who found us a table by the window. Fast service on the Bluff Oysters and bread and dips. Seafood chowder was outstanding!! Creme Brûlée was the best I have had. Great spot.

Enjoyed a family dinner here with the elderly parents and the service was great and the food well presented and good value for money. Easy parking though you think you are going into an industrial estate on arrival. It is much nicer inside!
