It is recognised for excellent food in a fine dining experience and awarded one of the best restaurants in the area by Open Table!

Helmed by Head Chef Jason Hornbuckle, who wherever possible tries to use local and sustainable ingredients. With a passion for reducing the ‘nautical miles’ of seafood, from source to plate.
