I had heard it was rather pricey here, but also the food was good, as i dont mind paying for good food i thought it was a nice place to come for a treat, i brought my mother and my daughter for a girly afternoon. We ordered gourmet burgers, and waited a very long time to be served, noticing that people arriveing after ourselves were recieving their meals and we were still waiting. I was disapointed with the food, mine was suposed to have olives and there were none, the food wasnt worth the price, even if the burgers were homemade, they were not worth the money. Dessert was good i realy enjoyed mine, portions were a bit on the small side, i wont be rushing back here, sorry.

The food is lovely, it is everything else that lets it down. The restaurant was nearly empty when we were served our desert. So the staff stared putting chairs on top of tables and cleaning up the washing spray was overwhelming and the full experience of this spoiled our night.

We have reviews the waterfront several times over the years but this will most likely be the last as it is closing its doors in January 2018.
The food as ever was fab and the staff are always attentive and friendly. As our favourite place to eat locally we shall miss this place enormously. old Luck Simon and Lisa in whatever you do next.xx

Late on the Friday before Christmas three wise travellers with no gifts to bear turn up outside the inn (restaurant). Timidly, the bravest entered and fought through to the bar whilst the other two waited in the cold outside. Eventually a serving wench asked what the weary traveller wanted. ‘A meal for three’ was the tired response with expectations of being shown the door. To his amazement the response was ‘give me a couple of minutes and we’ll fit you in!’.
Lo and behold within that time the three wise travellers we’re soon sat at a warm and cosy table and served their choice of ales from a fine list of refreshments.
And so to the food....
.....from a fine and extensive menu we were served a sumptuous British burger, a juicy piece of pork fillet and a fresh piece of Solway Cod fried in beer batter, and all served with a tasty range of vegetables.
Definitely a jewel of a restaurant, and the mains were followed by a fine selection of delicious deserts. Prices were also very reasonable!
Make the most of the last days of this excellent restaurant. If you do you’ll be delighted and also puzzled as to why a place of this quality has to close!
