Amazing service, food and drinks! Well priced! Couldn’t fault a thing!!! Went for my boyfriends birthday and stayed for hours, great atmosphere! Will be back soon!
Food was excellent! Juicy, drippy, succulent and tasty. Beautiful wine also. Definitely have the spanner crab and mussels again. Needed finger bowls...lucky we could wash at the hand basin!
Fabulous sea food and crabs. Very friendly staff. Brownie cake in the hot pan with ice cream and fresh cream on the top! Highly recommend.
