This is a serious fish restaurant in the guise of a local pub. I had a crab and fish stew. Both were expertly prepared, and the fish was obviously right off the boat. It is well worth the long and dangerous trip from my house (ok, it's a three minute walk).more

I love this place. My most recent visit was on a cold Saturday night in January. Luckily for us, even at 8 PM the upstairs dining room wasn't very crowded. It started to fill up around 10 PM when we were leaving.

My other half and I sat at a communal table, but had it to ourselves until about the time the check arrived. I really enjoyed my Cow Pie, which was a heavenly dish of steak spiked...more

I dont know why the fish stew has received so many great reviews...I found the broth a bit bland and not savoury. on the flip side, they have the best damn rock oysters I've ever eaten. Super plump, succulent, large, meaty and very fresh. Same goes for the half pint of prawns...filled past the rim and the interior of the pint was jam packed with these fresh lil' guys. Prawns and oysters...more

Probably the best 'gastro pub' I've been to. Only it's not a gastro pub, it's a solid boozer, which happens to serve great homemade food upstairs. Loved every dish i was served, from the pint of Guinness, to the half pint of prawns and then the crab pasta. Service isn't quick but if that bothers you, you don't get it. Just enjoy the vibe, drink some beers and look forward to the next dish....more
