Came here for a special dinner with my partner and we should of chose somewhere else. It took 45 minutes too get asked for the drinks and 30 minutes for the mixed bread starter. The main course came very quickly but it then took another 30 minutes for the bill to come. They were clearly understaffed but the restaurant wasn't even that busy. The manger did come over and apologise for the wait which I appreciated and the setting is lovely but it just took too long.

Their valentines menu is really posh and the price isn't too high either. If you really want a beautiful romantic meal, this is the place to go. The scenery is beautiful and the atmosphere is tremendous. Me however, I am a meatatarian and love big portion sizes so this was a little posh for me but if you love fine dining, check it out.

We had a cheeky take away and it was amazing 10/10 the ship now has competition the battered hake and chips was unreal. We also tried the chilli jam mayonnaise and mushy peas with haddock really nice. And finally the chips wow couldn't finish the massive portion we will be returning.

Came in search of lunch Saturday. Entrance boarded up. Interior a shell but a hive of activity so something new is coming. Don't know whether it will be the same but very different or a completely new business.
