Love this place,upstairs or down ,both are great . Drinks can be a bit pricey,but venue is great. Needs to sort out their parking as often there is nowhere to park in their massive car park and these cars can't all be in restaurant.As you have started a form of validating the cars,why don't you in force it and monitor...

I hadn't been for several years but nothing has changed... the restaurant has a happy atmosphere and the waiters are very polite. The food remains the same high standard that I remembered. There are various offers available so if you're not feeling flush then there are several options. However, I plumped for the £19.95 menu and had fish soup which... More

We visited on New Year's Day for a family birthday. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The place had a lovely bustle and atmosphere, the service attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. It definitely had the wow factor. I would definitely recommend this venue and will be returning.

I always go here for late lunches. It's so welcoming and friendly. The staff are always helpful at the counter regarding best catch etc. It's odd how you order as you have to go up the counter but I like that you see the fish and how fresh it is. I would recommend this for all occasions. I've never booked... More

Oh dear! We were under the impression we were visiting an old friend by spending our 30th wedding anniversary here. We have spent many fantastic times at this restaurant over many years without complaint. How times have changed! So sad to see that standards have dropped so dramatically. On arrival I visited the ladies and found it to be in... More
