A really excellent lunch today in this delightful fish restaurant . It was the first time we had visited since the new management took over. There was a wide range of choices on the menu with some meat options. The food was superb and the service efficient and friendly. We also loved the decor throughout which had been designed to fit in with the feel of the Harbour.

Best we have had for ages. Definitely worth the train journey! Well done everyone. We had the souffle with crab. I had the crab tortellini.

Our first visit since the new owners took over and refurbished the entire building. Beautifully designed and decorated, very impressed. The food and service were quite superb. The upstairs dining room is now a delightful cocktail bar. We will certainly be back.
