Fantastic location, food and staff.We sat outside and had the nicest fish and chips for lunch washed down with a glass of wine. What more can I say. We will be back.

The menu reads very well but we were disappointed at the reduced option that we were given on the evening we arrived to dine. Have also been here for tapas and cocktails and this was definately the better option .it was superb

Recently six adult family members dined at Phil's Place one saturday evening - the service was great, the meals were superb. Everyone was very happy with the whole evening.
