Very good deal
We were given a voucher for a 2 course meal with wine which was very good value. The food (fish chowder, goat's cheese salad, fish & chips) couldn't be faulted. The service was prompt and very friendly. A bigger choice is the only improvement we could suggest.
We liked the restaurant very much.
Quiet relaxing restaurant with excellent service and good choice of food. The special offer was also very welcome, 20% off the main menu.
The staff could not have been more welcoming and attentive. Many thanks.
