Visited this restaurant for a family members birthday this week and chose the location due to its proximity. I didn't know anything about it beforehand so had no preconceptions at all. First impressions are great. We were there fairly early so was pretty quiet, but the decoration and layout of this inn was immaculate. Very inviting and friendly staff add...

On Wednesday (the 11th of January) , I decided during one of my free periods at school to break up the day by visiting this restaurant, based upon great past experiences here. Sounds sad, I know, but I was certainly not disappointed! I got in just as they were opening, but were more than welcoming to me, even without a...

We had our Christmas Meal here this year. There were 4 of us on the late sitting. For us this was the perfect time. It was as expected very busy, but we were welcomed by very helpful staff. Our meal was excellent and our table was out of the way of the bust staff. They were all so cheerful and...

We revisited the Oyster Smack after two years and were very pleased to find that it is still a lovely restaurant providing good quality food at a reasonable price. The service is very good and we enjoyed an Espresso coffee to finish with a little biscuit, a nice touch which we always appreciate.

Went here for lunch with my husband. We both had a very enjoyable meal. I had the burger, he had the salad and we were both really happy. We also had dessert, both went for the honeycomb and it was delightful, although t did stick to my teeth a bit. Would recommend and visit again.
