* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A pub “for lovers of fruits de mer”, washed down with Larrikin craft beers from the on-site brewery. There’s “a short menu which could change a little more, but simple pub grub this ain’t” – and the “excellent seafood is so so delicious”.

“Fabulous, reasonably priced seafood” is the focus at this smart corner gastroboozer with stripped wooden floors. A “great range of beers” (some brewed on-site) complements “always innovative shellfish dishes and specials”.

Its simple, shellfish-centric menu may be “relatively unsophisticated”, but this relaxed corner gastroboozer (points for the handsome rope-hung pendant lights) “never puts a foot wrong”, with appealing al fresco seating and craft beers (from the new basement micro-brewery) among its assets.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
