Reviewed 20 July 2017

Visited for the first time last week,Monday.Handy parking for this little gem. Great selection of beers and Sauvignon in the fridge YUM.
A very varied menu something for everyone. Our food arrived quickly,nicely presented and hot.The service was very good and the building is old and interesting.
Toilet facilities were spotless such a good indicator. On sunny days when the world and his neighbour are looking to dine outside, factor in a possible wait,not unreasonable,for your freshly cooked food.
Looking forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: We did not stay only used the restaurant but we would highly recommend and will return

Highly recommend this put, Tony and his staff are all friendly and welcoming
The garden is a lovely spot to enjoy a cold drink looking out to the water
The food selection is great and top quality with a great home-made selection
It was a busy Saturday, but the tables were cleared quickly of food plates and drinks (something very lacking with many pubs)
Thanks Tony for a relaxing afternoon in the sun

Unfortunately the battered cod was raw in the middle. It was promptly replaced with an apology. This should not happen in a public restaurant where they should use a thermometer to check the internal heat of food to check it is properly cooked to avoid poisoning their customers.

Our philosophy is to give a restaurant one chance to get it right - no second chances so we will not be returning nor recommending this place.

This is a nice location looking over the water. It was busy-ish when we arrived for Sunday lunch but we got a table OK. The food was actually pretty good for the price - home cooked when it eventually arrived although portions were on the small side (even for Britain!) The main downside really was an attitude problem from the bar manager. A smile and hello would have been nice and we didn't appreciate the sarcasm when one of our party asked for information about a dish on the menu. When we ordered we were not told that there was going to be a long wait for food. Almost an hour in fact. When I made enquiries I was made to feel like I was being a nuisance. Customer service doesn't cost a dime.
