We ate at this delightful little restaurant this evening. All of the food was fabulous, both taste and presentation were spot on! The owner was so friendly and relaxed and even when it started getting busy managed to spend time chatting and making everyone feel welcome as they arrived and throughout the evening.
We'll definitely be returning!

We visited for a Sunday lunch where they do a buffet style service for the roast. We arrived just after 12 and were told as we were seated that the Wellington wasn’t available. This turned out to be the only vegetarian option to go along with the roast dinner, although you could opt for vegetables only. I was told that this was because they had all been pre-ordered!! As we were there just after they opened it is a shame that they didn’t have any prepared for guests that may pop in ad-hoc and not pre booked or at least something that they could substitute. I ended up having a panini and chips which was really nice, all fresh and hot and served with a small side of salad, coleslaw and nachos, just not a roast which is really what you want on a Sunday. My husband had the roast, he went with the beef and said that everything was very good. All the staff were professional and friendly and I would definitely come back for a lunch time visit on a different day.

Fantastic location, good service, but pretty average food. A very good seafood shared starter, but waited over half an hour for it.... Average Mussels, with skin on wedges, not Frites as the menu said and tender Belly Pork, with carrots and mash, but no crackling, even though the waitress said it would have some. Background music would improve the ambience of Charlies too.

Met family for Sunday lunch at Charlie’s Bistro at the Fisherman’s Wharf and had great food. I can highly recommend the carvery and the roasted garlic and mushroom soup was simply amazing!! Glad to see the restaurant was busy and doing a good trade; great selection of food and at a good price too.
