    My daughter treated us to a meal last night with you. I had the monkfish which was delicious. Unfortunately the table was dirty and we wiped it with the serviette. The waitresses were pleasant but did not make us feel part of the restaurant. The desserts were expensive and indeed we went to a competitor for desserts and liquor coffees. Couldn't fault the food we had but the restaurant and staff lacked ambience and a sense of welcome. We would not rush back.

    Great service as usual. Brilliant in fact. Roast dinner and mussels really delicious. Was a bit disappointed with the dessert though. The marshmallows were minimal and hard. I wouldn't have it again.

    Lovely atmosphere and amazing food, using local produce. Something that I believe is key for local non chained businesses.
    We had a lovely evening.
