During COVID this is one of a few places where I feel safe. Everyone wears masks when they serve you and everything is sanitised when guests leave.
This visit we enjoyed King prawn tempura and prawn cocktail. Both were delicious. Our main courses were blackboard special of cod and seafood platter. Again both were delicious and cooked to perfection.
Our waiter sorry I did not get his name but I think he was Spanish was very attentive without being pushy.
We will return

We were well looked after from entering, enquiring about items on menu, being served and ensuring all was well without being intrusive.
We ate late in the day so ambience maybe a little different as staff were clearing for end of service but staff very attentive and eager to please.
This our first visit but definitely go back.

Lovely Anniversary lunch, ordered a variety of dishes to share, all of which were fantastic! Crab on toast, scallops and lobster cocktail were Devine. The mains of monkfish and cod were also delicious, all washed down with a bottle of fizz, a beautiful afternoon out.

Well what can I say - another lovely meal - it was my partners birthday so a nice treat. Went for the moules and frites as we always love them and chef does a non dairy sauce for Sandra. Had a superb glass of Chablis - well chilled and was delicious. Service as expected - brilliant and socially distanced seating. All in all 5 star plus

It’s hard to do this as it’s a personal thing. We like where we sit as there in our opinion more ambience and you see the chefs at work and you can talk to the staff about the food etc

Quality of food not as good as before lockdown the mixed seafood grill was underwhelming, the cost if not for £10 off offer was overpriced.

A delicious meal, with good social distancing, but never felt like it was a chore (which it can do elsewhere). The dishes were ample. If I lived in Newcastle, I'd be making regular pit stops here.

Staff wonderful and food excellent could not fault the meal. However the price of the wine has increased considerably and although it was a nice malbourgh savingion blanc it was not as good as the previous one and up by 30%
