Had another amazing meal at the tavern. Highly recommend the panfried blue cod. Great food, great place, and awesome hospitality too. Thankyou for the experience.

The atmosphere was great for a couple, or a larger group. Very clean and tidy. The meals came out quite quickly even though we have a larger group of 12. Most of our table had the Blue Cod which was absolutely lovely.

The moment we entered and approached the bar we were made to feel so welcome. So friendly and great to chat to. Views out to sea fantastic and lovely deck. Great to watch the sun setting.
Nothing was a problem. Seafood Chowder so yummy. Steak cooked to perfection and blue cod delicious.
Well done guys
We stayed in the holiday home they also let out and also a lovely modern place with great views out to the famous boulders.
