    It never fails to impress. First choice food venue but generally make sure you book ahead. Sat at the bar and enjoyed both eating the food and watching it being skillfully cooked by the chefs at the open kitchen. Really friendly staff. We had the go to mussels and fish cakes. Cant recommend it highly enough.

    Somewhat constrained choice of small dishes, and given the extravagant choices of large dishes and platters, to have only bar seating seemed a shame. Wines by the glass unnecessarily expensive I thought. But freshness, presentation and quality all high.

    What can I say other than…amazing in every way! Service is exceptional from waitering staff,chefs to fishmonger! We sat at the counter and watched our chef cooking our food overlooked by a colleague who guided him to ensure it was done to perfection-lovely to see!Waitering staff are attentive and personable! The fishmonger was an absolute highlight we suggested itd be fab if the sauce served with fishcakes could be bought as brings the whole dish together he immediately offered to provide it for us! No second thought given,he prepared the sauce and fishcakes for us whilst we dined and simply added it to our bill for ease-he was charming and went above and beyond effortlessly!

    Disappointed with how long it took to get our meals. I was told that this was because people in the porterhouse restaurant were also ordering fish and there was only one chef for the fish.

    First of all easy to make reservation through Open Table. Lunch was excellent and highly recommend the sea bream with orange and rosemary. The staff are friendly and efficient. The menu choice is small but all dishes are freshly prepared. There are many dishes on the specials board both for small dishes and mains. Some really special offerings First class fish restaurant

    Not up to the usual standard, perhaps because of the choices made (by us). It all seemed a little bit hurried, with people not as focused as they can be. It is becoming very pricey, so perhaps they need to be aware of value for money.

    Having been away for almost two years due to Covid regulations, I was very pleasantly surprised to be greeted by name when I arrived. Several of the staff said they had wondered where I had been and how I was. And, having eaten half a dish of very mediocre Moules the previous week in a restaurant in Windsor, I was so happy to order some here. Relief! They were delicious! The only minus point is that the chairs are very high and if, like me, you have rather short legs, you may have problems! Though the staff are always willing to help you up!
