    We had just moved to the area from North Yorkshire and needed some food after packing. Called here at 8:45 Food was very nice and plenty of it maybe a little too much Will be going back here again in the future

    Came in for dinner with friends and had an excellent experience! Fresh seafood, good prices, very attentive service. The best sticky toffee putting I have ever had! Can't say anything about the hotel, but the restaurant was delightful!
