Great afternoon and atmosphere during the last few hours before pubs closed their doors for another 4 weeks. Felt safe, in these strange times, plenty of social distancing and everybody had masks on and plenty of hand santisers, good to see these were automatic plus track and trace forms

Tried the Monday tapas deal and the Tuesday sea food platter meal and they were both great value and really tasty. Would go back again next week but they are closed for 4 week due to the lockdown but I will be back as soon as the doors are open again 😃

A really lovely meal had by 2 adults and 2 small kids. Catered for all- my smocked haddock dish with mussels and samphire was full of complimentary flavours and felt very refined. Husband is a plainer eater and really enjoyed with his chili chicken strips. The kids loved the hot dogs as they were a bit different on a kids menu!

I sent this on fbook messenger already Hi I just wanted to send a little thank you message and to commend your staff working yesterday. My daughter and I had a table booked for 5pm. This was a special birthday treat for her as she was unable to have a 5th birthday party . The food was delicious and service outstanding . Unfortunately there was a table right near ours with people refusing to wear masks when asked by staff and also swearing and shouting near us. I felt very uncomfortable and asked for the bill , much more quickly than I would’ve wanted. Your staff were so apologetic , moved us to a quieter area and brought my daughter a birthday ice cream with candle. She felt so special and had no idea that we moved for negative reasons but she thought the staff wanted her to have a special pudding table ! The staff were dealing so professionally with what I can only describe as some very unreasonable and irresponsible customers. Thank you all so much , my daughter wants to come every year for her birthday now. Please pass on my thanks to staff

Had the lovely fish platter with glass of wine each. Great value and was delicious. Definitely recommend. Would have been five stars but for one small detail as all dishes came out together it got cold .... Have to eat faster😂
