Was looking for somewhere new in the area, to celebrate my partners birthday. Had looked at a few "upmarket" venues, and found most menu's heavily fish / seafood orientated, which my partner doesn't like. I saw your menu online, and there was a few dishes there that I knew she would like. The welcome was warm, and staff were very attentive, without being overbearing - just right. The restaurant was pretty quiet, with only three other tables occupied. Did mean we could have a quiet dinner, which was fine, but didn't spark much "atmosphere". Sadly was dark, so couldn't appreciate the stunning views. The back ground music was to our taste. It was a nice gesture to give my partner a little birthday treat at the end. (Mentioned when booking - well done for making the effort). All in all, it was a very pleasant night, with very good food, well presented. I have no hesitation in recommending you to other dinners, and we shall return again, hopefully not in too distant future.

We were a party of 4. I had booked early enough to ask for a window table. Our guests loved the view. We all agreed the food was fantastic. Every course was enjoyed immensely. The Sunday lunch is excellent value. We live locally and look forward to our next visit.

A very enjoyable meal and quite responsible value wise. A slight delay with regards to waiting for the courses to be served at the same time meant that the service rating is reduced to 4 stars.

Fantastic family restaurant on the seaside! The staff were very personable, engaging everyone, providing us with table side games to keep the kids amused whilst waiting for our food. The food was superb, fresh, and very tasty. Husband is a chef, and he was impressed with the quality, presentation, and flavours. A very relaxed, fun evening overlooking the sea, in a comfortable restaurant. Would recommend, and will definitely return again.
