Went for lunch on cold day. The chowder was to die for. Plenty of fish and real chowder taste. Handy next to train station. Staff friendly enough, service ok without being exceptional.

Went here with friends for lunch
Lunch was good probably just your typical
Chain restaurant. One if the staff had an issue with putting on the gas heater for us
Complaining that it was expensive to run.
But as there was 6 of us sitting there drinking I wouldn't have thought this should have been a problem

Decor great and staff super friendly and offer a really good service. Shame the same cant be said for the kitchen.

We ordered 2 open steak sandwiches and 1 of the steaks was all gristle and unedible in the end. Ribs just had a bottled sauce slapped over them. Chips were undercooked. Desserts were ok.

The atmosphere was nice though and so warm with that lovely open fire they have. If they upped their game where the food is concerned, the place could be pretty amazing. The staff really are super.
