From the moment we arrived the barman was really friendly and incredibly professional. We ordered a steak and the Hake - both were delicious but the Hake and it's sauce were amazing. The service and surroundings were great. Couldn't recommend this enough. A brilliant restaurant.

Popped in for a late lunch - warm welcome, lovely atmosphere and took the window seat. Our dog was welcomed and all the staff were great. A lovely experience, thank you.

Unwellcoming enviroment. Indifferent service from the male barman with a beard in the front bar. We were totally ignored as we left saying good night. We will not be revisiting.More
