Very pleasant staff and the food (good sized portions) was well done. Salmon was melt in the mouth and my wife enjoyed the chilli. Must try the fish (straight from the trawler) and chips next time. Well worth the visit.

Very friendly service in a rustic style restaurant. We had Fish Platter, Cheese Maccaroni and Fish & Chips. All tasted very good and freshly cooked.

Dogs are welcome in the bar but not in the restaurant. Booking is recommended in the summer season as we do get very busy. Bar tables are limited so if you have a dog I would recommend booking to avoid disappointment
