Service was great however we were a bit concerned that the staff were all wandering about with no masks on. The only member of staff we saw with a mask was the girl who brought our food out.

We just love this place! The food is excellent, staff are friendly only thing on this occasion my husband loves their Mac n cheese and it was sold out!lol he was devastated lol….but had the fish and he said it was very nice. I had the scampi and it was delicious, next time I will ask them to put my meal on a plate instead of a basket as it’s difficult too have a bit of everything on your fork.

Great day out in the sun, drinks service was a little slow but that’s understandable when they are so busy and table service only. Food was amazing. Keep up the great work.

Could not fault the food at all. I was concerned however that staff did not wear face coverings when taking orders at tables, delivering drinks to tables and serving food to tables. This made me feel a little uncomfortable.

Food was delicious, staff were friendly and place was very clean. My only negative was the time taken to be served. We sat 20 minutes upon entry before even being approached with a menu or drinks order. If those little things are tweaked then this place would be fantastic as the food is ace and staff are friendly.

Seems a friendly place, but the food service was very slow. Their first day open after lockdown so will cut them some slack for that. Will try them again when things have settled down.
