Looking forward to opening night on Saturday 2 June 2012 - should be loads of fun! Since the new owners took over, I give the restaurant 10 out of 10!"

The real thing.

The menu is impressive and contains just about everything one could hope for in a pub. The draught ale with which I kicked off proceedings was a portent of things to come.

The plate of hake and chips came in a pleasing visual presentation - the garnish more like a side salad, the tartare sauce in a separate bowl, ample and delicious. The fish was fresh and succulent, fried to perfection in a crisp and wafer-thin batter. The chips were piping hot, crisp and golden brown, with the dimensions of real chips, not the emaciated fries of a take-away.

It's going to take some time to work my way through that menu, but I'll try - it's going to be fun."
