Fabulous service, welcoming atmosphere and dependable tasty food - what’s not to love! We last ate here about 3 years ago and it was just as good this time round. Hospitable service and value for money - a West Coast institution not to be missed.

Much enjoyed the friendly service and the nice dinner. Both the seafood basket and the mixed grill were very tasty and the portions were very generous.

Great pub/resto in Foul wind. Very nice food, prepared with a warm hart. Great atmosphere, because it is visited mostly by the locals.

Got a beer in 1 minute and dinner in less than 15 minutes. That is way less time than other restaurants we have visited this 2 week trip. Wonderful food and service. But we warned that the smoked salmon steak was very salty.

We stayed close by the Star Tavern for 2 nights and had dinner on both occasions here. The meals were good pub food, the service friendly, and the general ambience a pleasure. And the locals added flavour.

We arrived after a 9 hour journey and the beer and food were just what we needed. Lovely atmosphere and somewhere that serves fresh vegetables! Lovely to talk to Kay and a definite place to go back to.
