Lovely Sunday roast the service was really good .Nice choice of beers and ciders to pick from. If you don't want a roast there is only 2 other items on the menu .

First visit, found you on Trip Advisor and would def return. All the staff encountered were really friendly & service was excellent. Menu is small but I assume that is due to the current climate & would increase as we come out of lockdown. The starter of Crayfish ravioli was AMAZING, the beef was perfect. Lovely setting & can’t wait to return, Well done

I was very disappointed with the meal, the meat was inedible, tough and stringing the service was haphazard And the bench was very uncomfortable. It’s not the first time I’ve eaten here and it’s never been very good, so I won’t be coming again and wouldn’t recommend it either! Waste of money !

Unfortunately I don't think you can claim to cater for vegans. There was one starter which you said to double up on. However 2 plates of the same dish asparagus is not a complete meal. You said there was a selection of ice creams suitable for vegan when I queried what the selection was it turned out that out of the 3 choices there were no vegan ice creams only 1 sorbet (iced water with flavouring not very filling). I think you could easily improve by buying a vegan burger that you can keep in the freezer and offer a vegan burger and fry the chips in any oil that doesn't contain animal fat

The menu was extremely limited this time literally fish and chips or burger and chips as the main course which although both very nice we come along to the Harty ferry for a little bit of different which unfortunately wasn’t the case this visit brought family members along paid to have the outside gazebo on a Saturday 3pm so was a bit disappointed service spot on as always here and value for money as expected maybe just drinks next time if the menu does not change

Hi Caz, I appreciate you taking the time to leave a review, I'm disappointed to hear that you was disappointed with our choice of menu, Unfortunately, due to only being open at weekends and that of course is weather dependant we have made the decision to run a reduced menu for a short while, but of course once we are back to indoor dining as of 17th May we will have our full menu back on. I will pass your comment on to our staff regarding service and I hope we can look forward to welcoming you back once we are fully open.

High quality dishes and perfect size tapas plates. Service was friendly and helpful. The croquettes and ravioli were stand-outs. I would happily visit again. Outdoor seating as per Gov regulations, only downside was no outdoor heaters so it is a bit windy and chilly at this time of year.

Food was nice but expensive. Didn’t think it would of cost how much we had to pay. There was no prices on the menus. Poor selection of food to choose from and not a wide range of drinks either. Disappointed to be honest

The food was fantabulousz We’d decided prior to our visit to try all of the small dishes. Once there my Fiancé opted for the Cod and chips. I had the difficult decision of what (2) dishes I should then order for myself. Managed to reduce my choice to 3 dishes. Ravioli, Pork Belly, and Asparagus. Each dish was absolutely wonderful. The waiting staff were brilliant, including the young lady who was on her first day :-) We will be back, and can’t wait to get married here.
