Such a shame that a place becomes so average due to lack of concern for service and food quality. No one greeted us for 2 minutes at restaurant check in. No one behind the bar. Waitress pleasant enough but alone and too busy. Drink order took 5 minutes to arrive and was wrong. Food was boring; lamb was tough. Price... More

The food was good and enjoyed by all our party, but the service was very slow. We sat for ages with our menus for dessert and had to ask the waitress to come and take our orders. I was surprised that the service charge was already included on the bill as I think it should be left to the discretion... More

Early evening Saturday. We had a delightful waitress, efficient and funny. Despite there being 3 or 4 other waiters/waitresses on duty, ours seemed to be the only one actually doing anything! Acceptable fish and chips and a very nice duck salad. The pizza itself was nice however the figs didnt appear to be caramelised, just figs, and there was no... More

This was our second visit here. Lovely environment with very friendly staff. Food was delicious. The crab and crayfish pot as starter was lovely and so tasty. I had the roast salmon wich was nice but the veg disappointing. The butternut squash was tasty but the other veg not to my liking at all. Loved the sticky toffee pudding and... More

A first visit as I was here for a CFS support group meeting, suffice to say if you plan on having a chat/meeting here with say 8 or 10 friends then the Seahorse with it's alcoves,comfy sofas & relaxed friendly staff is a great place.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I have to admit the comfy sofas and the alcoves are one my favourite things about the Seahorse too!

Just been to the Seahorse for the first time in a long while and you can automatically tell that the new management has excelled the place. The service was soooo much improved and the manager on duty, Robby, seemed to give the FOH a great aura. I mentioned how much better the food was than the last time we visited;... More
