Sample Take-away Menu

Our menus have changed in order for us to adapt to staffing levels and guidance from the goverment.  We have had no choice but to strip back to a more basic offering focusing on easy simple cooking with the freshest of ingredients. Please see our COVID page…

The menus have been designed to allow for take-out as well as dine in.  The majority of menu items are available for you to enjoy off the premises sat aroudn the wonderful harbour or taken back to your home with your friends and loved ones dining on the freshest of fish and locally sourced produce.
