Good food and excellent service. A nice place to enjoy a meal and watch the world go by. We try to get there a couple of times each few months. Enjoy a day down at the waterfront

In spite of it being a busy Saturday evening, service (by John) was excellent and the noise level was reasonable. Mains were good basic cooking and well priced. Desserts were unimaginative. There is a time limit of two hours on Saturday evenings.
