Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Very popular eatery, you would probably be well advised to book during high season.

Good limited choice menu. The restaurant is very popular and operates a queueing system on a first-come-first-served basis. The staff are very efficient and service is very quick. Despite a slight feeling of being served quickly to get your table free for the next guests,...More

This established was recommended by our accommodation owner, and I am glad we visited. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff really friendly. The local seafood selection was great - as were the whisky tasting boards. We enjoyed our meal there so much we went...More

Visited with friends for dinner in early May. Friendly pub environment; dining room has 70s-era feel, but seemed very popular both with tourists and locals. Friends had a huge plate of langoustines, which they tucked into with gusto and enjoyed. Great value at around 15...More
