The food was excellent and well priced, I had a white bait sandwich for starters it was that good I wished I had ordered another for main, my wife had 1/2 dozen reasonably priced bluff oysters in a meal. Unfotunately the service let them down...two people front of house and 16 patrons had to wait 20 minutes to get offered drinks, my wife who unlike me is very patient was about to go up to the bar and ordered just before. The food and prices trump the service so would go back.More
