Exceptional ingredients locally sourced from exceptional suppliers, treated with care and flair to produce simply delicious dishes.

A reputation for excellent seafood that goes back many a year… it is one we are delighted to continue. But sometimes all you want is a pie and a pint or a sandwich and a bowl of chunky chips.

There’s a seasonal light bites menu too… because sometimes a sandwich and chunky chips are all that you really want. The perfect sandwich with the perfect chips complete the perfect picture.
