It's a small restaurant but it has a lovely cosy atmosphere with a great host. The seafood platter, consisting of a cold started and not main was simply stunning. Huge variety of beautifully prepared and cooked shellfish and fish. Best I have ever had. Sadly...More

This is a proper seafood restaurant. We’re foodies and are always on the hunt for good seafood restaurants. The fish does the talking and the accompaniments take a back seat - simple herb butters, garlic crumbs etc. Nicely steamed veg, good mash and chips and...More

The Seafood platter is to die for, fresh and seasonal including catch of the day. A busy but cosy home feel that remains attentive to the customers needs. It's well worth a visit and merits the awards displayed in it's unassuming entrance.

We had the scallops and pork belly appetizer, the mussels and the sea bass. All were nicely presented and delicious. Service was good even though the restaurant was almost full. Reservations recommended.

Susan, Apologies for not replying sooner. Our capacity is 28, and that's the only space we have. I could suggest Manning Emporium, or Dan Phils for a group this size. Neither would be a private room but you perhaps could... More
