We came for lunch and were not disappointed.A good test of any restaurant is how well it does fish and chips and i have to say that they were excellent.Service was good and it was reasonably priced for the quality.

Abar always has an excellent atmosphere with a great wine selection. If it’s fish and chips; or a burger, mussels or steak you’re interested in then you really can’t go wrong, these are excellent, however the menu can be a little repetitive.
