Hi, we were looking forward to our visit based on the recent reviews. We must have been in a different place to the other reviewers. However the interesting memorabilia and good music (we had the same music list playing as another reviewer) made us realise...More

It is absolutely amazing that you found so much wrong with the food, the prices and apparently everything when most other customers are well pleased with their experience. Even more amazing that in a situation where you were apparently so displeased that you did not...More

Nicely situated near the ferry terminal this large cafe type restaurant offers everything you want in a breakfast, if it is not on the menu , it’s no bother to make it. The bacon sandwich was just what I fancied and hit the spot nicely....More

This restaurant gained full marks from me when I got off the ferry feeling chilled and just craving a hot bowl of soup in order to warm me. "No problem. We can do that for you," was the reply from the handsome young waiter who...More

Belated greetings for a happy anniversary. It is so nice when people tell us not only that they are pleased with us but also the details of how we achieved our customers' satisfaction. This just helps us to do better yet.

Fantastic review. Thank you so much for your positive and detailed feed-back.

We went for dinner because of all the rave reviews on TripAdvisor. I had the Burger and my companion had Fish and Chips. Both were fine but not a five rating. We are both a bit confused as to what we missed!

We have never claimed to be a five-star establishment. There is only so much one can do with a burger or fish and chips. Had you asked we would have recommended the roast or the lamb backstrap.

The lamb backstrap is to die for, succulent, full of flavour and great value would highly recommend.
