Had a midweek birthday meal with my daughter there. The service was very good, children's portion of fish and chips quite large and so tasty that my 3 year old finished it in no time. Oysters great as usual, overall nice experience!

Great rustic place to spend a rainy afternoon with some oysters and a bottle of wine, in the upstairs bar. Friendly staff.

This was our venue for a large group for a special birthday. It was the perfect location, stylishly presented and the food and service was superb. Cannot recommend too strongly.

Sorry for the delay. The question alert has just come in. There's lots of parking at the harbour and it's a short walk to the restaurant. Enjoy!
