I had a lovely, belated due to lockdown #2, birthday lunch. @Steinssandbanks is my absolute favourite. The staff are always polite and friendly, the food fantastic and the views superb. This time they gave me a surprise birthday message on a plate, which was an unexpected and very thoughtful gesture, thank you! Hope to dine again there soon.

We enjoyed a delicious meal whilst visiting the area from Hertfordshore, the staff were very welcoming and were seated at a table with a great view. Thank you.

You are closed because of government guidelines and our meal was cancelled so very hard to say weather it was good or not. Looking forward to rebooking

Guys love the restaurant and the food but the service has died. Used to be brilliant but now you just focus on procees of Covid and not serving people. Part of visitieng arestaurant is about the entertainment, 'the show' the interaction. If that doesn't happen the might as well eat at home!

Very nice restaurant & lovely view. Whilst the food & drink was nice, we received our drinks after our starter. Chocolates was a nice touch for my husband's birthday.

Excellent evening meal, with fantastic views over the harbour. The restaurant was extremely busy due to the rush for last day before lockdown. All in all very good and looking forward to coming back again.

You have to book a table online only. And it took all my credit card details. But it wasn’t the card ended up paying. I DO worry about the Data Protection, is it really necessary for securing a booking?

We have been regular visitors to your restaurant in the past and we’re very glad to be able to get a birthday celebration meal in before lockdown 2.0 started. The food, wine and service were very good. My only criticism would be that It does seem like your prices have increased quite a bit.

We were disappointed that we didn't have more space between the tables, there may have been 1 metre + between some tables, some were not even a metre, ours was less on one side than the other but by the time you were sat in your chair you were less than a meter from the next diner, it felt like you had tried to squeeze more tables in and we didn't feel particularly comfortable with this especially since it was our first time out dining since the pandemic started and with my mother in law who had been shielding. I don't know what the limit was on capacity but since we were hearing most places were on 50% it certainly didn't feel like in the upstairs dining area you were on even 90% it felt like normal capacity. That said the food and service was excellent.

My husband had Fish and chips ( as usual) but they were soggy - both the fish batter and the chips - having said that the fish was fresh and all was tasty
