Good food, unusual menu. Not the best choice for dietary requirements but it was nice anyway. Portion sizes aren't the best but there are very nice side dishes that you can add but be careful as that can get pricey if you're not careful.

I've never had any food here but the hot chocolate's are the nicest i've ever had. They have many different flavours but my favourite one is the orange hot chocolate because the intensity of the flavour and the thickness of it. Highly recommend.

Not many choices in the are, so it was nice to find Skylark. Old school chairs and little odd tables were forgoten in a minute aftrr the food was served. Fish soup was excellent. Local lager good as well, nice staff.
