We called in here tonight for a meal. From the moment we entered you couldn’t fault the service. The food (steak, salad and chips) was cooked to perfection. A great place to dine out.

We were recommended this place for dinner. It was full when we arrived so it was really buzzing. Our meal was excellent and a decent serve and the service was great. Would definitely recommend eating here.

Popped in for lunch, Sunday, mid-August. Cold and biting outside.... not all that warmer inside. Service was friendly. Food was OK - tasty, but wouldn't have me seeking it out deliberately. Coffee was a bit weak and on the cooler side.

We visited Lake Bar on recommendation of our Airbnb hosts. We ordered the Thai mussels and seafood chowder, both were totally delicious. The service was great and our waitress was a true delight to deal with. Pricing is reasonable too.
