This is not the cheapest place you will find but it appears to be aimed at diners looking for more than the standard fare on offer at a lot of the other restaurants. If you look beyond the prices you will feel well rewarded after you have tasted what is on offer. There was a good choice on both the starter and the main course menu with an eclectic mix of fish and meat to tempt the palette.

The food was excellent quality and the service was top class. The waitress was very attentive without being overbearing which added to the enjoyment of our special family meal to celebrate New Year together.

I would agree with other reviewers that the wine was a little overpriced for the quality but not as overpriced as the water at £4 a bottle!

However, that said, it doesn't detract away from the overall experience and I'd ask for tap water next time (once bitten, twice shy). I would certainly recommend to friends who were looking for that something a little bit different.

The service was absolutely brilliant from the time we walked through the door. The place is very cosy, layout well thought out as it didn't feel crammed even with all other tables around us fully occupied. The food was nice, my fish cakes huge and a little too salty with the amount of bacon with the garnish. The other dishes were perfect. Prices slightly above the average, but worth it. Definitely will be back.

Excellent food. Wine a little over-priced for the quality but it didn’t detract from a first class meal.
