I’ve had good experiences here in the past but this time it was poor. Very slow service at the till, and in delivery food to the table. The coffee was weak and the seafood chowder was the worst I have ever had. Thin and milky...More

I visited here recently and was very disappointed, prices weren’t in the display and the manager was very rude when I asked why. Will never return here and don’t recommend it at all, prises are high and food just average!

Overpriced on both food and drinks for what it is. They need to improve on both or drop the prices. And stop serving burnt-tasting coffee. Our waitstaff was exceptional though - he should be looking for a job somewhere better. Will give this a miss...More

Lovely setting, food good but the service appalling. For example we asked for eggs on toast with baked beans, NO was the reply we dont do them they are not on the menu. On further examination of the menu, we discovered they offer baked beans...More
