Glorious menu of all things fishy...(apart from the scrumptious dessert 😉). Scottie surpassed himself, each course was a sumptuous creation.

This restaurant is unique in my experience as it is a true Dining Club i.e you have to be a member or invited by a member. It opens regularly, but not every day, and offers a pre-advertised fixed menu for a fixed price. No choice...More

I visited as a guest of my brother and sister in law, they being members. We had a simple three course meal. Roast watermelon with chilicheese sauce; the chili was mild and not obtrusive. Pleasantly surprising. Sausage and mash, onion gravy, peas and onion rings....More
