The decor is more transport cafe than restaurant. The food is good but was put off with by the fact they brought catch of day to table. Didn't want to see that. They are proud of the fish but need to work on the ambience...More

I love coming here and have done many times over the years. I am absolutely devastated to hear that they are closing soon due to following other careers. Again on Saturday we enjoyed a fantastic meal of fresh sea bass for me and pork belly...More

Crispy duck starter which was wet and soggy. Waitress wasn't concerned about it when I mentioned it, dressing on my salad was far too much which ruined my meal. Didn't bother with the dessert. Not particularly welcoming and lack of atmosphere.

Ate here recently with friends and it always amazes me that the quality never slips. The food is simply to die for (particularly the scallops starter and pork belly main course) Although it could do with a lick of paint just to brighten it back...More

We had a lovely meal - the service was pleasant, friendly and unhurried. My daughter said the pork she had for her main course was the best she had ever had, and the sticky toffee pudding I had for a dessert was definitely the best...More
