Lovely afternoon outside sitting at one of your fire pit tables which was much needed on a cold dull December afternoon. Staff very welcome, polite and helpful. Food good quality and enjoyed it very much. Only small grumble was that food service was a little slow.

We had a very very good meal at OCK starting with Deviled Whitebait, followed by the OCK Tier, consisting of Lobster, Dressed Crab, Oysters, Moules Marinere, Prawns. Crayfish, Cockles, Anchovies Smoked Salmon, Mussels and Samphire. At the end we had desserts and coffee. This was all very nice and value for the money, but when the bill arrived a 10% service charge was imposed, I would prefer to add my own tip at the end. To me this is out dated practice Considering some of the reviews I read on trip adviser. We took a chance on this restaurant. Very good meal, thank you Bill D

Lovely restaurant. Very pretty and great decor. Food was really lovely and service for good. Very helpful. My only criticism was that the restaurant was very cold inside. Also when my prawns were delivered to the table in a metal pot, I burnt my fingers lifting the lid so would have been good to know it was very hot. But overall I would recommend and return

This was our 1st time visiting your restaurant for pur wedding anniversary. I have to say, the food was great, but the evening was made by how good the service was. Unfortunately we didn't the name of our server, but he was extremely friendly, had a lot of charisma and made us feel completely at home. He even persuaded me to try oysters when I'm not a fan of seafood (they were very tasty by the way). The food was tasty and the night was great. Thanks again and we will be back soon. Aaron and Jo

Visited on Friday lunchtime, this was a present from my sister so we had a gift voucher. I told the waitress as soon as we sat down but she said they deal with it at the end. (but the voucher included a bottle of Prosecco). We ordered and beer and a coke, then our mains which was steak. I had to ask for water. The steak was chewy which was a shame. We had no opportunity to ask for any further drinks as no other service was offered. At the end when we asked for our bill I repeated to the waitress that we had a voucher, she looked and I pointed out the bottle we should have received, she said she would speak to someone, we waited and waited...........we decided to go. She when eventually came back to us and said the manager was getting it which would be nice we thought. She returned and said that we should have had it with our meal......really we did try.........and that the next time we come in we will get the bottle and that we should have asked........planet Earth come in...we tried. I reminded her and she said yes but all c=vouchers are different. Sorry but this did make us look like we were begging for a £7 bottle of fizz, I don't think so..................I do not think I will return
