Called looking for gluten free food and it was brilliant. We had a local seafood platter with two kinds of bread and two glasses of wine for less than £20 and it was amazing. Thank you so much, like Ernie we,ok be back.

This restaurant is perhaps the top of the 'mid-price' range - but is ALWAYS good value for money. The quality and portion size is good. The staff are friendly and helpful, even when the place is full.

Thank you for your kind review. We like to keep our menu simple & fresh, but still plenty to choose from! Sadly you are right about the parking and allowing extra time but there is always somewhere eventually !
