The bread served along side the seafood chowder really compliments the dish. Its not too fishy and not too creamy, which is something I find the most with chowders. This dish it’s self is outstandingly good. I would recommend to a friend.

With a bistro ambiance this restaurant is perfect for a catch up lunch. Several interesting choices, not the usual pub grub. Service was very good and unobtrusive.

Average meal. Some hygiene issues, water glasses upturned on tables, this would Allow any bacteria on table on to rim of glass. Also cutlery being dried with towel near tables, surely this is not hygienic.More
