We enjoyed a lovely family get together - great food - lovely fresh fish - and excellent friendly service. We often pop in for a drink, but hadn't been in to eat for ages. We live locally and will definately be back for a meal much sooner!

I had booked for a party of 9 walkers. Everything ready for us when we arrived - despite it being very, very busy. Service was very attentive and the food arrived quickly and all together even though we didn't pre-order our meals. We were asked to arrive at 6pm, but were not pressured to give up our seats early. Also, no complaints when we all paid separately at the end. The mussels in Thai curry sauce were truly delicious, and everyone was happy with their meals. Portion sizes were quite large, so no one ordered dessert. Will visit again. Well done.

The prawn & crab linguine was very good but a tad less chilli would make it perfect.

What a charming, quaint space. However, there was one waiter taking all drink and food orders. He was clearly stressed and, therefore, understandably not pleasant. The food was decent. The portions were huge. The beer selection was good too. I'm not sure I would go back but I'm happy to have been once.

Stood a while until someone came to see us despite having a reservation. Food unbelievably good for the money. Service other than greeting was quick and efficient despite it being really busy.

The food was good, the service was quick. However it seemed too quick - almost like they wanted you fancy n an out. Also had a nice pint of local IPA a few days earlier. I asked for it again on return only to be told by the bar man it had finished and he immediately offered me something else. Only for the barrel to be changed 30 seconds later..... slow down!!

Really friendly and well organised staff, nice relaxed atmosphere. Food was served in good time, my preference would be an alternative to chips maybe nice Welsh new potatoes, but all the food is delicious.

Very enjoyable food. The staff were very patient and understanding. My son had Down syndrome and he was very agitated. They turned the music down.
